Effective Use of Social Media

To some, social media may not seem like an obvious tool for scientists and researchers as it's often seen as a personal channel to post photos, stay in touch with friends and family, etc. However, its already having a major impact on researchers' work, as noted in a recent article in Elsevier:

It can be used to tracked research related to a scientist's work, used to maintain networks of collaborators and peer experts, and support an investigator's research impact, career advancement and funding.' And even for scientists not interested in having an online presence, social media can still be used to learn, listen and amplify science and research to a larger audience.
