This week in social media — oceans and beyond in pictures.
By Stephie Hass
This week, in honor of Washington Life’s new Instagram account, we are devoting Society 2.0 to images, graphics and video around Washington and the Web.
NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover was the big story this week, offering (mostly black-and-white) photos of the red planet from @MarsCuriosity, a personal Twitter account.
YouTube and Georgetown Cupcakes are gearing up for Discovery Channel‘s “Shark Week” (which launches Sunday, August 12) with “Animals Acting Like Sharks Week” videos and cupcakes with fins (respectively). In honor of the popular shows, Washington residents can request a shark attack at work — more details on the Discovery Shark Week website.
