On a daily basis, social media networks distribute a hefty volume of content, creating a public square that is jammed with posts. This crowded universe suggests that additional approaches are needed to help readers quickly find subjects of interest and we’ve been contemplating the best approach to this opportunity.
After experimenting with alternatives we’ve decided that the best strategy is to create a a Facebook channel focused on Cecil County history. On this new public space original and curated content concentrating on the Cecil County story will be shared, making information findable while also facilitating Cecil County’s heritage conversation.
As we do with Delmarva History, our Cecil County page will share created and curated content about the past at the head of the Chesapeake Bay. It is our goal to have the page serve as a public history commons, a place to share and discuss stories and rich media posts related to Cecil County’s heritage. Like this page to keep up with narratives about Cecil’s past from many source on Facebook.
Also be sure to check out our Delmarva History newsfeed where you will find shared posts from all around the Peninsula, while the Cecil page will focus on the local narrative.
