Follow OHA on Instagram — a new way to stay connected
Social media serves as a means of keeping the world connected. Various platforms, including Twitter and Facebook, promote that connection primarily through words, as we learn to make our opinions concise while tweeting or keep in touch with people through Facebook messages. Instagram is a social media platform that focuses on photographs, and those visuals are linked through phrases with a hashtag, such as #historynerd, creating a sense of community through images. The Oral History Association now has an Instagram account, ohassociation. This will not only strengthen OHA’s online presence but will simultaneously offer glimpses into the world of oral history, such as the inner workings of the office, or pictures from the past. Through Instagram we will continue connecting with oral historians around the world, sharing our goals of preserving memories and uniting in our belief of the power of shared knowledge.
