Museum and Educational Social Network (MESN)

August 21, 2007 § 1 Comment

Lauren, one of the curators for australianscreen online gave me the heads up about this article at artshub entitled ‘Facebook for museums’. It’s about MESN a new museum specific social networking site started by Kurt Stuchell. There seems to be a focus on ‘authenticity’ of material on the site and the provision of a ‘safe’ learning experience for students.

 We needed a more defined and structured platform that would embody the educational objectives of our member museums and present a clear value proposition to art lovers, educational institutions, parents, students, and life-long learners. The purpose is explicit: this is an environment for learning about cultural treasures.

I will keep my eye on this, but my initial reaction is that it is not as immediately as fun as interacting with museums on flickr or facebook – I’ll be interested to see how they motivate the above-listed stakeholders to hang out with them.
