NASA’s Use of Social Media

Social Media has taken over the culture in today’s society and the use of it grows every day. Companies and brand scramble to see who uses it the best, but there has been one to stand out. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or otherwise known as NASA, program uses takes social media and uses it to its full potential for their purpose.


NASA is a government program that is most known for their research in space. NASA releases their finding on not only their website, but through their many social media outlets. NASA currently has 14 social media pages to use such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube to name a few. The wide range of social media pages is helpful because you expand the audience of your product by reaching different demographics on each page.

NASA is doing a remarkable job with their social media because they keep the population alert with their new finding. They upload new material and updates on their current missions so their followers can know what is new in space. Recently, NASA has astronauts at the International Space Station in outer space . While this is going on, NASA is keeping their followers updated with what is going on in space with activities from using a robotic arm outside the shuttle, to putting together their space suits. Keeping your audience engaged with what is going on is such a major part of what people look for when they follow a brand. NASA keep us updated with everything so you know what is going on and that is what puts them above the rest. Below are some examples of their social media use from Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter:

[ARTIST CONCEPT] Some 290 million years ago, a star much like the sun wandered too close to the central black hole of its galaxy. Intense tides tore the star apart, which produced an eruption of optical, ultraviolet and X-ray light that first reached Earth in 2014. Now, a team of scientists using observations from our Swift satellite have mapped out how and where these different wavelengths were produced in the event, named ASASSN-14li, as the shattered star's debris circled the black hole. This artist's rendering shows the tidal disruption event named ASASSN-14li, where a star wandering too close to a 3-million-solar-mass black hole was torn apart. The debris gathered into an accretion disk around the black hole. Credit: NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center #nasa #space #nasabeyond #blackhole #swift #astronomy #galaxy #science
