Their Instagram includes photos and pictures detailing a lot of rock and roll, from instruments to the musicians who play them. They also include videos of performances from many artists (Rock and Roll hall of Fame). One thing the rock hall has at its disposal is a YouTube channel that they use to post videos of content or induction ceremonies from current or past bands. This adds connectivity to the Google+ section of the social media network, as YouTube requires the user to possess a Google+ account. They also post videos of not only the bands who get inducted, but of the induction speeches, such as Mick Jagger when he inducted The Beatles (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). These videos help popularize the rock hall, as the subscription number for the hall of fame’s YouTube channel is 97, 578 people (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). The YouTube channel page of the rock hall also has links to their other social media outlets, such as Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.
