This type of technology opens the door for public history sites to also crowdsource work for the project from new sources that may not have been available without the use of social media. This platform allows for a way for the audience to interact and communicate with the digital public history projects and even could open the possibility for the audience to share their own experiences or contribute their ideas. Social media also allows for collaboration between organizations or public history sites virtually that may not have been possible before the widespread use of social media. Social media opens the door to new possible digital public history work and this technology has influenced the way different organizations think about spreading their message to their audiences and reaching out to new audiences.

This advancement allows digital public history projects to attach location services to their project. There are entire digital public history projects dedicated to using this type of technology to share their history message with the public. There are many different types of digital public history projects that has come out of the use of GIS, and digital history walking tour projects is a great example of this use in action. Public history sites can set up these walking tour projects for someone to use while on the site using GIS. This then making it possible to have a digital public history project that can be accessible to the public from their mobile device and without the restriction of needing a tour guide or having to go to a specific museum location during specific hours. This technology allows for more widespread use of those types of digital history projects. The technology directly impacts the type of digital public history projects are even possible and inspires new ideas with the use of this technology.
