I am now officially a member of the MyMoon Street Team!

A Look at NASA’s Awesome Lunar Social Media Site—MyMoon! March 1, 2011Posted by Nick Azer in : Luna C/I, MyMoon, social media , 1 comment so far
It’s time for a look at the NASA Lunar and Planetary Institute’s slick, energetic, and cutting-edge social media site: MyMoon!
Gritty, fun, and borderline spastic, the site is set up to serve as a fun destination for discussion of all things lunar.
An overview of the cornucopia of things up on the site:
- A community blogging network
- A page on world lunar tales, in audio, with the option to submit your own
- An exhibit on the “sometimes snarky” “master of the zinger” Galileo Galelei
- A warped lunar exploration timeline, in video, from their local ‘truthiness expert’ Chuck the Squirrel
- An interactive 3D Moon Globe
- A T-shirt contest
- Interactive webcasts and news
- A candid and entertaining About Us page
- And more!
It’s a fun place to explore, and it’s great to have a social spot for all things lunar—so check it out (and keep a tab on their blog for updates)! The Moon’s a surprisingly personal thing to many people (“NASA is bombing the moon? WTF?!” was a common response to the LCROSS impact mission, especially as it caught fire on Twitter), so social moon destinations will be interesting places to track as this chapter in space develops…
