Social Media Research: next steps agreed

8 May 2012

Post it notes with research ideas at UCLSMP discussion

An energetic UCL Town Meeting last week brought together academic staff and students from across UCL to identify common interests and potential future research directions relating to social media.  STS staff Simon Lock, Jon Agar and Karen Bultitude teamed up with UCL colleagues from Digital Humanities and Anthropology to stimulate discussion and provide a mapping of academic staff and student interests in social media research.

The event formed part of a UCL Grand Challenges project which aims to develop collaborations and strategic research around social media at UCL.  The participant contributions are still under review however initial analysis indicates interests in developing robust data sharing approaches as well as social media opportunities for student engagement and collaborative working with public groups.  

To keep up to date with the project follow #UCLSMP on Twitter or contact to be added to the mailing list.
