Description

By now, LinkedIn, Twitter or Instagram are no longer new. For many scientists, social media platforms have become an integral tool for global networking, sharing research ideas, and job search. But, what is a good way for scientists to make the best use of these platforms?

 

In this interactive talk, we’ll look at the pros and cons of different social media platforms and will make the first steps towards brushing up your online profile.  

Which questions will we cover in this talk?
