Social media made simple

Posted on

You’ll remember that I posted a few weeks ago about some research showing that researchers aren’t much for using social media (“using social media in your career“). It can be very confusing to navigate, and it’s always hard to tell what kind of platform you should be using. My colleague has just sent me a simple demonstration which should help to clear up all of your anxieties: yes, it’s social media… with doughnuts.

    Hi Lorna, I like the example! Just wanted to let you know that I’ve created an online guide, ‘social media for research’, which contains examples of different ways in which academic researchers are using social media, together with tips, advice and further reading. It’s at http://libguides.ncl.ac.uk/socialmedia Feedback from researchers would be most welcome. Lucy Keating, Robinson Library.
