Want to supercharge your social media strategy? In this free webinar, research communication experts from Footnote will provide advice on how to use social media to share you and your institution’s research with a broader audience. From tackling Twitter to leveraging LinkedIn, learning to use social media effectively is essential for increasing the impact of academic ideas and expertise and reaching audiences both within and outside your field. We’ll explain how Footnote and our institutional partners share research and engage with tens of thousands of followers on social media, as well as how we’ve adapted to the challenges of communicating effectively during the COVID-19 pandemic.
