Social Media and Conservation

October 3, 2011

David (WhySharksMatter) over at Southern Fried Science has a great presentation now up on the web.   It was delivered at the 2nd International Marine Conservation Congress last May.

A great overview of social media.  Congrats, David!  With so much information production in this information age, social media provides us with guidance on how to sort through it.

Of course, I think the real takeaway here is not that IUCN or other large institutions should take up Twitter or make a Facebook page, but rather that they stay aware of who are the leading ‘information mavens’ with huge followers.  A lot can be accomplished with a friendly email informing this small group.  (The original post is here.)
