Brooklyn Museum: 1stfans, a socially-networked museum membership

The Brooklyn Museum continues its exploration and extension of Museum services by offering 1stfans a socially-networked museum membership. Members pay a smaller $20 membership fee and get access to special events where they can mingle with other 1stfans members, may skip lines at film events, and get alerts via flickr, facebook, and twitter.

The museum also recently added a crowd-sourced art work tagging interface that allows users to describe work in the collection using free tags, and has utilized Flickr for over a year now to promote events.
