Clear communication about what you do means more people understand your work. It also means they have the information they need to connect with it.

This webinar discussed the best practices for using Instagram for scientists. It included a master lesson on using Instagram to promote community and outreach events.
It covered everything from where to find photos, what information to include in the description, and how to update your profiles.
After the @ARVOinfo webinar for the #SciComm Fellowship with @profswatson @HigherEdPR on how to use Twitter and Instagram to communicate our research, I have now started my own #Instagram! #followme https://t.co/k8I0t9O07R Thanks @MWindsorPhD for organising this #phdchat #scicomm pic.twitter.com/RLWfzRA3GU— Daisy Shu (@EyeDaisyShu) October 11, 2018
It was a privilege to attend a webinar on ‘Science and Social Media’. Social media is for sure a great platform to share our work/knowledge with a wide audience.
