Jim Mann of the Daily Inter Lake reports that Glacier National Park has it going with social media, with the Glacier Facebook page recently surpassing 100,000 viewer “likes.” That milestone came just three years after the park’s Facebook page was created. Jared, a Huntsville, Ala., resident, became the 100,000th “friend” of the park.
Currently, the park is sharing information through social media about snow plowing on the historic Going-to-the-Sun Road. Photos of snow depths, plowing activities and other related images are available, specifically through the park’s Flickr site, www.flickr.com/photos/glaciernps. Glacier’s social media involvement includes Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube and the Web. More information on how to access them is available at www.nps.gov/glac/parknews/index.htm.
