Social Media for Citizen Science Projects

Date: 10/12/2020 14:00 - 16:00
Location: Online

There are many reasons to use social media for citizen science projects. However, the use of Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok etc. can be challenging for project managers and research staff. Not only is it difficult to keep track of the multitude of social media channels, but also of their respective limits and opportunities.

With this event, the OeAD with its Center for Citizen Science will provide researchers with tools to give their citizen science projects more visibility by using social media and addressing their target groups effectively. The invited speakers will provide theoretical input and best practice examples.
