With Facebook users numbering about a billion and Twitter drawing around 500 million as of June 2012, it is no surprise that many companies have taken notice and created pages to engage with their fans and supporters.
NPR maintains a number of accounts across these two platforms too, each curated for the wide-ranging interests of our audience - from food to politics to NPR people, and everywhere in between. Here's a quick breakdown:
- NPR's editorial Facebook and Twitter accounts focus on our stories and the content we produce across our different on-air shows, podcasts, news desks and digital spaces.
- Our "This is NPR" Facebook page and Twitter account are managed by our corporate team and bring you behind-the-scenes details and insights into NPR life, events you may want to check out, the latest on what's happening with our hosts and staff, and announcements about upcoming programming features you don't want to miss.
Taking part in social media is just one way NPR is connecting with our unique listeners and fans. That's what NPR Listener Services shared recently with Dennis, our Curious Listener. Read on to find out more:
Send your questions about the inner workings of NPR, something you heard during a program, or anything else NPR-related to NPR Listener Services. Your question and the answer might even end up on the This is NPR blog.
