Ashley Rose Mehlenbacher, the Conversation

Scientists are active on social media, discussing everything from methods to the latest developments in research. They even use social media to raise funds. Scientists sometimes provide mentoring online and have conversations with more junior researchers about their careers. Social networking tools also provide a space to build both social and professional networks, allowing scientists to develop new collaborations. Dismissing online science communication as trivial to the intellectual work of scientists would be a mistaken position.
