Getting Started With Social Media: Academia.edu

A guide that explains how faculty and staff can use social media.

Academia.edu 101

Academia.edu is a place to share and follow research.  With Academia.edu you can:

  • Share papers
  • View analytics on your papers and profile
  • Follow other scholars in your field

The Basics

When setting up your account be sure to fill out these fields:

  • Your university, department, title, biography, and contact information
  • Websites that you would like to promote (e.g. your Twitter home page, etc.)
  • Papers that you have authored (you can link to them online or upload them)

If you plan to use Academia.edu as your social media home base, be sure to keep your page updated.  For more information about my social media strategy please see this tab.
