NWS on Instagram (Prototype)
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
All Forecast Regions
NWS is seeking public comment and on the potential utility of Instagram in carrying out the NWS mission at local NWS offices. Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them through Instagram, as well as through a variety of other social networking platforms. For a limited time, NWS will be engaging in a prototype activity to examine the potential utility of this social media tool to support operations. Because exploring the use of Instagram cannot be done outside of the public Instagram environment, experimental efforts will be publicly visible. The names of the participating WFOs are listed in the PNS.
