On scholarly use of social media in Nordicom Information

In the latest issue of Nordicom Information Maarit Jaakkola has drawn together a number of Nordic media scholars who use social media in various ways. “More and more scholars are using Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social networking sites to communicate their research to the larger audiences but also to connect with each other. Nordicom Information asked some academic users in the Nordic countries about their strategies and experiences in the most popular platforms of social media.” I am one the academics who gives some answers. “You seem to have an ambivalent relationship with being online?”, Jaakkola for example asked me: “Yes, I don’t see myself as an engaged researcher in social media – I occasionally post, link or retweet. To be honest, it’s an activity that doesn’t take up my time in any considerable way. I am simply present in social media – restricted to Twitter and my personal site – and I find it important and will continue to do so.” Her article can be downloaded here: jaakkola_bloggers_2017
