This accession consists of records documenting Facebook accounts maintained throughout the Smithsonian Institution (SI). Facebook is a third-party social networking site used for interaction with the general public. In addition to general SI-wide accounts, many of which are managed by the Office of Public Affairs, the accession documents the individual accounts of museums, research centers, and programmatic units throughout SI. Materials include screenshots of a portion of the "Wall," general information screens, photographs, event listings, and notes. The majority of the accounts were captured in March 2012, though a handful were captured as early as November 2011 and as late as August 2012. In general, approximately 2 months of content was captured; however, accounts that included a significant amount of original content were captured going back to the beginning of the account or the last date the account was captured. In the spring of 2012, Facebook began converting institutional accounts from the "Wall" format to the "Timeline" format and examples of both formats can be seen in this accession. Materials are in electronic format.

The unit responsible is listed, followed by the Facebook name, the date of earliest captured wall post, and the date of capture.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of the "Smithsonian Summer Showdown" website and selected associated social media. The Smithsonian Summer Showdown was a competition for which many of the museums, research centers, and zoo chose one iconic item to be voted upon by the public. Competitors included the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, the National Zoological Park, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, the Smithsonian Gardens, the Smithsonian Institution Archives, the Anacostia Community Museum, the National Museum of American History, the National Postal Museum, the Archives of American Art, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the National Museum of the American Indian, the Asian Pacific American Center, the Smithsonian Latino Center, the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, Smithsonian Folkways/Recordings, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the National Museum of African Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the National Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. The competition was bracket-style with round one items grouped into science, history, art, and culture categories. Voters were eligible to win several prizes awarded by random drawings. The competition ran from July 28 through August 18, 2014.

The website was crawled during each of the three rounds and after the winner (Bao Bao the giant panda cub) was announced. The crawls include the brackets, the voting forms, the official rules of entry, and the prize details.

Throughout the competition, many of the Smithsonian Institution's Twitter accounts were used to promote the competition and encourage votes for particular items. One method used was "trash talk" between competing museums and research centers in which they engaged in playful conversations about how a particular item was better than another. The conversations often provided context to the items and their places in history. A search of the #SIShowdown hashtag in Twitter was crawled on August 29, 2014. Tweets with the #SIShowdown hashtag between August 15 and October 6, 2014 were also exported into a spreadsheet.

Several units within the Smithsonian Institution used Storify boards to collect and contextualize Tweets and other social media content documenting particular aspects of the competition, including the National Museum of American History, the National Portrait Gallery, and the Smithsonian Institution Archives. Several boards were created in the central Smithsonian Storify account as well. Each of these boards was crawled on August 22, 2014.

Materials are in electronic format.

This accession consists of the "Smithsonian Summer Showdown" website and selected associated social media. The Smithsonian Summer Showdown was a competition for which many of the museums, research centers, and zoo chose one "seriously amazing" item, experience, or piece of knowledge to be voted upon by the public. Competitors included the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, the National Zoological Park, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, the Smithsonian Gardens, the Smithsonian Institution Archives, the Anacostia Community Museum, the National Museum of American History, the National Postal Museum, the Archives of American Art, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the National Museum of the American Indian, the Asian Pacific American Center, the Smithsonian Latino Center, the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, Smithsonian Folkways/Recordings, the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, the Smithsonian Libraries, the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the National Museum of African Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the National Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, the Digitization Program Office, the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, and the Smithsonian Center for Digital Learning and Access. The competition was bracket-style with round one items grouped into science, history, art, and culture categories. Voters were eligible to win several prizes awarded by random drawings.

The competition ran between August 6 and August 24, 2015. The website was crawled during each of the three rounds and after the winner ("Raising Endangered Babies" at the National Zoological Park) was announced. The crawls include the brackets, the voting forms, the official rules of entry, and the prize details.

Throughout the competition, many of the Smithsonian Institution's Twitter accounts were used to promote the competition and encourage votes for particular items. One method used was "trash talk" between competing museums and research centers in which they engaged in playful conversations about how a particular item was better than another. Tweets with the #SIShowdown hashtag between August 3 and October 12, 2015, were also exported into a spreadsheet.

Materials are in electronic format.
