This guide explains what social media are and provides an overview of the social media available on the web today. It highlights social media intended specifically for scientists and scholars, as well as social media for the general public. Lastly, it describes CSHL's recent forays into the world of social media.
Please contact Judy Wieber with any questions.
While we have included a couple of fun sites for all audiences, the main purpose of this guide is to cover resources that are used by scientists, students, support staff, and other professionals in their work. For more information about other social media sites, please consult the various specialized search engines noted on the Other Popular Social Media page.
