Why should grad students use Social Media?
Here are 5 reasons why graduate students need social media:
- Connect with others
- Make research accessible
- Mobilize your research
- Make yourself the expert
- Alternative- or post-academic careers
These five reasons are expanded upon in the article this is excerpted from: From Ph.D. to Life in University Affairs. The author shares some good reasons and good ideas. I like the idea of doing a one minute summation of research/thesis on video – put on YouTube. I might do that and post on my main blog. Chack out the entire post at the link above.
