“You need to be in touch with the communities in which you operate. In the past these communities were specially bound – campuses and conferences – now they have had their boundaries removed.”
“I think that the importance of digital technology in the research world will increase over the next few years and it will be expected to be incorporated into the workload of the average researcher in order to increase the impact of their research outputs.”
Social media has a positive impact
Increased access to information
Ability to connect (network, collaborate)
Network for careers (information, reputation)
Personal:
"Easier to keep in touch with friends around the world."
Professional:

"Greater access to papers etc. through online journals, blogs. Use of social media as public engagement tool."
Career Development:
"Easier to keep up to date with career opportunities via LinkedIn, email alerts, RSS feeds etc. Facilitates networking/communication with potential employers. Also makes me more aware that the audience(s) I'm communicating to may not be specialists."

There are benefits for us too
@canhoto:

networking, peer support, access to respondents, information (e.g., CfP), …
@RD531:

access to a range of experienced professionals, news of new policy, useful tools for workshops, useful web sites
"Benefit for me is that communicating via social media before the start of a course/event, breaks the ice before you meet them physically. Enables better communication and because we’ve both been brought together via the medium of social media comms – it feels like we instantly have something in common."
”It enables me to connect with other people in higher education, and has made me more aware of issues/challenges/opportunities.”
”We are having to rethink the way we communicate and disseminate information about what we do....and also find/develop expertise to help researchers to better use digital technologies.”

”We are having to rethink the way we communicate and disseminate information about what we do....and also find/develop expertise to help researchers to better use digital technologies.”
Researcher developers see digital literacy as important and yet may not be confident users themselves, and so some targeted training in this area might be beneficial.
What current activities do you deliver that might benefit from using social media tools?
