MY ONLINE PRESENCE

When I googled myself, I found that the majority of hits on the first page were actually associated with me! My ResearchGate, Facebook, LinkedIn and personal Instagram pages all appeared, along with a StageClip from my Masters graduation.

While I am happy that both my ResearchGate and LinkedIn profiles appeared within the first few hits, I’d love it if my professional Twitter and Instagram were more easily found. Whereas my ResearchGate and LinkedIn profiles are solely professional, my Twitter and Instagram let some of my personality shine through, and I think this is important to engage people and get my research noticed.

Having looked at my social media accounts, I’ve realised that I should be trying to keep a consistent presence on them and make sure that they are always up to date. Not only will this allow me to better present my research with others, but it will help me keep on track with new developments that other researchers are making in my field.
