There is no way to avoid social media. Most of us wouldn’t want to do that anyway. Social media is a place to connect with friends, organize politically, find professional opportunities, promote and learn about new books, and engage in public scholarship and debates. But social media for academics can also be a huge time suck. It can even be a dangerous place as it is increasingly moderated by employers, students, and even political groups and bots looking to pounce. Add to these issues the addictive nature of social media, and managing it can feel like an overwhelming task.

In this webinar, Dr. Kate Drabinski offers suggestions on how to use and manage social media as academics in ways that help advance academic and non-academic careers, build professional relationships, and avoid some of the bigger pitfalls that come with the territory.
