Social media has become integrated into many aspects of daily life. Websites, blogs, and YouTube are used to communicate information, keep in touch with people, and create social networks. Similarly, scientists are increasingly using social media to share new articles, discuss scientific opinions, and circulate information about professional opportunities and scientific events. Social media networks can be beneficial for scientists by offering powerful tools to boost their professional profile and increase the visibility of their science. In this workshop organized by Women in Cognitive Science, an international panel of senior and junior researchers will discuss best practices for using social media toward different scientific and professional goals. In different presentations, panelists will focus on the use of blogs, tweets, websites and internet platforms for scientific dissemination, increased visibility of personal scientific profiles, networking, fund raising, and increasing public awareness and understanding of a scientific topic. Panel presentations will be followed by open discussion with the audience.
