“What’s Going On with NASA Education and Public Outreach?” – The Planetary Society Blog

The immediate impact of this EPO suspension is difficult to understand.

“Is it going to kill anything off? I don’t know.” said Jason Townsend, Social Media Manager at NASA. “We’re not stopping social media. We’re working on doing it smarter, communicating missions in a more strategic manner.”

Mr. Townsend went on to say that he “can’t imagine” a mission in the future without a Social Media account, though the scope of those accounts may be smaller and focused on mission-critical qualities.

He also said that NASA Socials will continue to happen, but there is currently nothing scheduled due to lack of launch dates in the near future. When asked if there would be a NASA Social for LADEE, the next mission to the Moon set to launch in August, he said that there have been no decisions yet, but doesn’t see why it wouldn’t. Since NASA Socials would be managed by local NASA employees, the current ban on travel does not apply.
