The Regional Archives Maribor started with Facebook and Twitter activities only in November 2011. The main goal is to promote the archives and its function in the area which it covers. Since the archives in Maribor had almost no public recognition in the past, the first impressions and followers‘ feedback show that its presence in WEB 2.0 contributes greatly to its promotion. The presentation will also include a short inside to the overall situation concerning the use of Facebook by other Slovene archives.
