Exploring Social Media
This session will introduce you to a range of social media tools and the digital research practices they enable. Participants will have an opportunity to enhance their digital presence and explore a variety of approaches to networking and collaborating online. Particular attention will be given to ways that researchers can exploit social media to promote their work, share ideas and communicate with other researchers. There will be opportunity to discuss and debate issues and concerns with other researcher staff who are already successfully exploiting the opportunities afforded by social media.

"[blogs] link to research reports and articles on the one hand, and they are linked to from Twitter, Facebook and Google+ news-streams and communities."
Blogging and developing your blog site
think of a blog name and your rationale for choosing it
think of a topic and the content of your first blog post
consider your blog’s relationship to your research. What would you publish?
