Heritage Tourists visit Facebook

By: grabitsdm | Information Technology | December 7, 2009
In "A New Study Reveals Popularity of U.S. Cultural and Heritage Travel" on Gozaic a summary of new findings is provided. What caught my attention was that 42% of heritage travelers use Facebook. It would be interesting to know if there is any kind of a trend, or which of the many social media outlets heritage travelers are more likely to use.

How might historical organizations document changes in visitation based on social media?
