NASA is an organisation with a prolific social media presence, with tens of millions of fans across the globe – not only in the United States. And now, it’s going a step further, by
[quote]sharing its best images on official Pinterest and GIPHY accounts, providing visitors an out-of-this-world journey through animated GIFs and images of Earth and beyond.[/quote]
On Pinterest the organisation has started posting new and historic images, and videos, as pins that belong to broad categories like “aeronautics, astrophysics, Earth science, human spaceflight, and more.”
Adding GIPHY to its roster of social accounts, NASA created a database and GIF search engine for users to discover, download and share some of NASA’s best moments. GIFs are also available through the Twitter app; simply tap on the GIF button and search for NASAGIF. Seriously! How cool is this?
