Today nearly a Billion people use Facebook, and more than 500 million use Twitter to connect, share and interact with one another. YouTube receives more than 4 Billion video views per day, millions of people blog, and there are than more than 14 million articles on Wikipedia. Social Media today is impacting every aspect of our lives whether it is our social, working, education or family life.
However, what about using social media for collaborating in research projects and communicating scientific knowledge?

This presentation explores how social media can be and is used to play a critical role in the full academic research cycle. We will look at how we can use a variety of social media tools to collaborate on identifying, creating, quality assuring and disseminating scientific knowledge. For example today, many doctors are using Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Blogs to share and discuss their latest research with their fellow professionals and the public. By doing so, their work is sometimes being peer-reviewed by hundreds of experts around the world, empowering a more impactful learning and research experience.
