Click page to buy

After looking at New York, it was interesting to see that Philadelphia museums were taking a slightly different approach to their videos and social media.

This 25-page report, Philadelphia Museums: 2013 Video and Social Media Rankings, assesses how much Philadelphia museums and their fans used Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other channels to promote and document exhibitions, collections, events, and special events. The 2014 edition will be out in early 2014.

We gathered statistics on the number of video views, photos, and tweets associated with each of the 33 museums, gardens, zoos, and libraries during a 24-hour period in January 2013 and ranked all of them.

Keep scrolling to see the 24 lists of statistics included, the video rankings, and the list of museums surveyed. You can buy the report for $48.00 at our shop:
