Berkeley Lab Takes Over DOE’s Instagram Account

Yesterday, the Public Affairs Department was given the keys to the Department of Energy’s Instagram account, a popular photo-sharing site. The occasion was used to capture a day in the life of Molecular Foundry Director Jeff Neaton, from his bus ride to work, to seminars and meetings, to conversations around a whiteboard (and of course a turkey sighting). See out the photos here, and check out Berkeley Lab’s Instagram account. Got ideas about ways to use social media to highlight Berkeley Lab? Contact Kelly Owen.
