Facebook at this point is something of a "Main Trail", if you will, in terms of Boyce Thompson's presence on the social media platforms. However, much like the Arboretum's actual main trail there are various small detours that are as special as they are unique. Within social media the truth of the matter is that there are very interesting interfaces these different platforms provide that afford the user both an ability and experience that are also unique and worth exploring.
The Boyce Thompson Arboretum itself possesses an array of artistic visual opportunity. Although photos may for instance be posted to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, they will be presented in a format and resolution that is suited for those platforms which, currently, are not set to a very high standard in terms of detailed visual content. However, in the instance of Tumblr the quality and presentation of content nearly exceeds all else. Users will experience a simplified non-clutter format with the option of having content presented to them as the author intended, or as a simple dashboard post to scroll past among other interesting posts that peak one's interests. For Boyce Thompson Arboretum this means that any content with more detail and or special meaning is more likely to be fully appreciated there.
