SOBA: Social Media for Science Outreach - Eventbrite 2012-05-24


Use the link above to register for the free event described as follows: “Social media has revolutionized communication, including how scientific methods and results are shared. Today, scientists are blogging, tweeting, and participating in real-time, online dialogs with the public and with each. University labs, publications, and science museums are getting into the act as well, spreading interest in science and engaging with their communities through Facebook and YouTube and other channels.  But how do you gain an audience and spread knowledge and enthusiasm for science? What are the pitfalls and opportunities? Join the SOBA community and active social media practitioners in science for a gathering at swissnex San Francisco on how social media can be utilized for science outreach. Speakers Brad Voytek, a UC Berkeley neuroscientist; Amie Wong, Marketing Manager at the California Academy of Sciences; science media personality Kirsten Sanford (“Dr. Kiki”), and others share success stories and lessons learned. Presentations are followed by a panel discussion, audience Q&A, and follow-up conversation at a nearby bar (to be announced at the event)!”
