"Being @NASASocial" - Talking Space

On this special episode, we talk to NASA's Social Media Manager John Yembrick and NASA's Deputy Social Media Manager Jason Townsend. We discuss the origins of the former NASA Tweetup now called NASA Social and the impact it has had on those who both planned it and those who participated. We also discuss NASA's trend-setting power and how they have become the top governmental social media agency. We then also discuss the topic we've been discussing on this show over the past month, and their view on traditional vs. social media after the SpaceX CRS-1 Social where participants were given the same access as members of the media. Learn all about @NASA's (and the other 500 Twitter accounts) inner workings and everything you wanted to know about NASA Socials.
