Evaluation of Social Media Archiving Tools

Project Details


The project looked specifically at tools for the capturing of social media content, and its aim was to assist professionals working mainly but not exclusively at cultural heritage organizations to select appropriate tools for social media archiving. The result is an overview of a range of tools for social media capturing falling into two broad categories: those preserving the “look and feel” of social media, and those preserving structured social media data. The tool survey is accompanied by a contextualization of social media archiving tool selection as an archival issue, and by the description of use cases that display tool usage in different contexts.
