Creating a Facebook group for your experimental facility is a simple and valuable way to generate interest in your research and increase engagement — with the team, all ages of students, fellow researchers and the public at large.
A great example social media engagement at work is the Center for Geotechnical Modeling at UC Davis. On the CGM Facebook group, site PI Dan Wilson recently posted a year-end research roundup, highlighting efforts by multiple individuals.
From the posts and the photos on the CGM page, visitors get a tangible sense of accomplishment and camaraderie. It looks like an interesting and enjoyable place to work!
When you visit, be sure to follow the CGM (right under the lead photo) to get occasional updates.
