Researchers and Web 2.0 (LILAC 2011)

I knew I'd be entertained by my colleaugue Lucy Keating's talk about her work on researchers and social media. Lucy explained her concerns that researchers don't use social media because there is lacl of clarity on the benefits, there's no critical mass, there are concerns over plagiarism, they feel it's trivial and for social use and there are few career incentives. However she feels that she can tempt them with her netvibes site, which neatly brings together resources on different aspects of web 2.0 to get them started. It includes examples of how researchers are using the different resources successfully and you can find it here
