Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, by now, are no longer a new thing. Also for scientists, social media platforms have become an integral networking tool to connect globally, exchange research ideas and results and advance careers. But, what’s a proper way for scientists to make use of these platforms?

In this workshop part, you will gain a better understanding on the current state of digital science communication. In detail, you will learn how scientists may integrate social media into their activities — in a helpful and productive way. We advocate a reflected media usage that keeps a close eye on how and when it is recommended for you to ‘go digital’.
