What are the conditions needed to create real engagement via social media? I shared three case studies of successful public engagement. All three examples highlight that building an engaged audience doesn’t happen overnight and requires flexibility, training and a targeted communications strategy. True public engagement with research should be a two-way street. #scicomm   #social   #socialmedia   #research

In response to debate about how social media isn't 'real life' I've had a think about how networks are becoming more diverse and more like reality. #socialmedia

Story
Tagline
Science communicator and fan of the internet.
Introduction
Hello, welcome to my world! I'm a curious cat who likes everything science related. I wear a number of hats so expect a mix of things on my channel.
 
By day I work in Public Engagement with Research. I connect public audiences with the latest research via a number of ways. I'm carrying out a Fellowship with the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust to see how scientists around the globe can use social media to discuss science with public audiences.
 
I think information should be open and that evidence-based reasoning is the best. I organise lots of science-y events and Tweet a lot. I like to travel. I'm also known as hapsci on the internet.
