ABSTRACT
The article introduces social media tools and their benefit to interpreters. With the development of Web 2.0, interpreters are given the chance to change the way public comment periods are run, design exhibits and meet visitors' needs. Social networking sites such as Facebook, Flickr and Bright Kite are used to build personal profiles, contact friends, exchange information and ideas, share pictures or build online communities around photos. The map mash up is a form of photo sharing in which photos, interpretive text and visitor information are attached to a site's map. Social networking allows users to join online fan clubs, monitor feeds, adopt a conversational and fun communication style, use fascinating materials to capture attention, and frequent participation for online fan group.
