Dear ASCers,

Please pass on to anyone you think would be interested - particularly early career researcher you might work with.

Join us online for a 90-minute discussion with researchers and science advocates who have built strong social media profiles. Find out how and why they started, and what they've learnt along the way.

They'll share their tips on how they made it work for them, what to post on different channels, which audiences you can [A picture containing indoor, table, sitting, small  Description automatically generated] reach, and how to deal with the trolls.

* Will a social media profile help you build your research career?

* What's the difference between Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn anyway?

* How do you use them to promote your work?

* Are you a #seriousacademic if you tweet?

* And what even is Tik Tok?

If you're keen to raise your (or your organisation's) profile on social media, this is the session for you.

Featuring cosmologist and North Carolina State University assistant professor of physics Dr Katie Mack, UNSW cancer biologist and media regular A/Prof Darren Saunders and science TV host and author Lee Constable, (AKA @astroKatie<https://twitter.com/AstroKatie>, @whereisdaz<https://twitter.com/whereisdaz> and @Constababble<https://twitter.com/Constababble>).

Hosted by Science in Public's Director of Engagement Tanya Ha (Me! @Ha_Tanya<https://twitter.com/ha_tanya>).

Wednesday 13 May 11am to 12.30pm AEST.
