Thing 1

Social media and I have a love-and-hate relationship! As a rather reserved person, I hate how you are exposed to all and sundry including unhelpful criticism and ¬†sometimes unsolicited aggressive retorts! ¬†I can say that so far I am only familiar with Facebook which I try to use very judiciously- keeping always in mind who I am “friends” with. On the other hand, I read how important it is to have an internet profile as a researcher as this is an effective way of getting your research known and cited. Out of the this course, I hope to explore different social media and how these can support my research profile. I am confident that somehow I will succeed to “tame the dragon” and then be able to use it with profit!
