Social networks as source of information
martha fabbri:
Personally, I get most stimuli on scientific current affairs through social media (Facebook), where most of my contacts share this interest with me.

Facebook, Twitter, Newsletters

which one of the above, or other social networking tools, you prefer to use, if any?

twitter has the limit of allowing you only 140 characters and to keep an archive of only 2 weeks, more or less. but it's fast, and does not require your personal involvement in the conversation. do you use it within your workflow? and how? do you follow specific people who are reference point in your work?

for instance, during the recent CERN seminar on the Higgs boson, there was a parallel stream of Tweets commeting the talks, the presented results, the numbers, even the emotions showed by the CERN scientists. Did you by any chance follow the event in that way? Was it adding something to the information you were getting officially from CERN?

Facebook has now million of users. Do you think that it works as an efficient tool to discuss things with scientists, researchers and with your own colleagues while preparing an event or collecting information for a book?
