State Archives of North Carolina Launches Social Media Archive (Beta)
The State Archives has launched a beta version of its new Social Media Archive, the NC State Government Web Site Archive & Access Program: Social Media Archive BETA. The archive is currently collecting a pilot group of state agency accounts, and its public interface allows visitors to search posts, comments, photos, and tweets. The tool, built by Durham-based ArchiveSocial, helps state agencies fulfill records retention needs through the instantaneous capture of social media content and quick delivery of this content to a public access portal.
[At launch] the archive contains more than 55,000 public records of Facebook and Twitter communications from state agencies across North Carolina.
