MuseumShare is a shared platform for content creation, distribution, and social sharing, with a series of in-person activities to help make cultural heritage more engaging, social and community-based.

On the surface, the app permits museums to freely upload entries about artworks, enriched with various media, while users can photograph, share and comment on the artworks. Behind this structure is a powerful backend that uses open data, social API and statistical analysis to improve the museum-going experience through feedback both to the institution and to the user.

This talk will present the platform and its declinations and take a look at what kinds of statistical feedback one can receive from an app of this type, with specific examples.
