We are using content curation software to pull social media posts through to the Your Story newsfeed on the home page. We follow a range of publicly available accounts and hashtag subjects, such as #lakedistrictbid, from open social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Google+, Pinterest and Vine. This content is then curated, or ‘moderated’, by the World Heritage Bid communications team, on a regular basis according to relevance and interest. The posts on the Your Story page are not from declared supporters of the bid, but the content does demonstrate the diversity of the identity, inspiration and conservation of the Lake District and this reinforces why we believe it is worthy of UNESCO World Heritage Status.
Our objective is for communities, visitors, and residents to join the campaign and help us spread the message. We want people to get involved, show their support and raise awareness of the bid. One of the main ways they can do this is by using social media, the content will then be shared here.
We value all the social media posts that help us promote the Lake District and its special qualities as part of the World Heritage bid. Your recognition and reward will come from helping the campaign’s success and potentially gaining new friends and followers who share the same interests as you.
If you do not wish to have your posts shared by www.lakesworldheritage.co.uk please use the contact us form and we will remove your content. However, as your content is publicly available we cannot guarantee that your content will not be used by other curation platforms.
