  11. 11. CRICOS Provider Code: 00113B Do I have time to develop an online profile? • Give yourself a time limit to learn new App technology….DISCARD those that do not suit you • Big Three are Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn • Set up ‘professional’ Facebook and Twitter Accounts and set on to replicate posts on the other • Consider starting a blog to help you get into the ‘habit’ of writing • Crowd funding is good for raising profile and gaining seed funds and kudos, but labour intensive • Social Media can be used to further professional networks, esp. at EMCR and PhD student levels • Social Media is good for Advocacy • Make sure you do ‘Real Life’ engagement too!
