One thought on “Why Academics Should Use Social Media

  1. I agree with the author. Personally, I am more interested in using social media tools as a means of professional collaboration and knowledge sharing than I am in using social media for personal socializing. I recently started using DoD TechSpace (hosted by DTIC) for this very purpose. I’m excited by the potential for creative discussion and knowledge advancement, but disappointed in how few of my DoD and military colleagues actually use this tool, despite its built-in security mechanisms.
