The New Trend in Social Media
Did you know, an international team of astronomers, working in collaboration with the University of Central Lancashire, has discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a quasar group so large that it would take a vehicle traveling at the speed of light some 4 billion years to cross it?
If you are a science enthusiast and are looking to connect with others who have a career in science, find out about the latest science news, and find out about scientific current events, you may be in luck. A recent shift in social media suggests specialized, tailored social media platforms emerging, based on specific likes, such as careers in science, that are geared to bring like minded individuals together.
Gone are the days where your information must come from scholarly journals online, or traditional journals. As of 2012, one out of every five minutes spent on line was spent on a social networking site. While scholarly journals online were seen to be a ground breaking way to get information, there are new plans on the horizon.
Subject specific social media sites have begun to emerge as the new way to disseminate information. The great things about tailored sites, such as scientific social media sites, is that they provide a platform for discussion. Science questions, science answers, and scientific news can all be conclusively joined in one location, making it a great place to connect and educate online.
If you are a science enthusiast, sick of reading scholarly journals online, or just looking for good old fashioned discussion, keep your eyes open for these up and coming sites. For more information see this.
