Travis and I recently gave a keynote presentation at our alma mater, Queen’s university, on the utility of social media use among academics, researchers, and graduate students.

The 1 hr presentation, entitled “How to win friends and influence people with social media” covers the following topics:

1. Why researchers and graduate students use social media

2. The (many) pros and (few) cons of being an academic online

3. How to build a basic strategy for taking your research online

Enjoy the video and please share with any colleagues who might be interested. Feel free to skip to 4:20 for the start of the talk. Looking forward to your comments!
