Effective Social and Digital Media Strategies

The modern era of social media and subsequent democratization of content has had a major impact on how scientists communicate and engage with their audiences. The world of one-way communication, of one source to many readers, viewers or listeners – has changed into a multi-faceted communications universe, where niche-audience customization and increased relevancy have been made possible.

To take advantage of the opportunities and deal with the challenges presented by this new universe, scientists need to go beyond tactics and employ a strategic approach to their engagement on digital channels. Actions need to go far beyond merely opening up a few social media accounts. As science communication matures in its approach to digital, specific resources are being assigned to content strategy, data analytics, channel strategy, technology and overarching social business strategy. Scientists need to realize that the true foundation beneath all the tools is a powerful paradigm shift, led by a citizen culture that embraces and expects participation, collaboration and transparency.
