Managing Your Professional Online Reputation [B3]


The growth of importance of the Social Web is providing new opportunities for those with skills and expertise in the use of Web-based tools. Not only can services such as LinkedIn and Twitter be used to enhance networking and dissemination activities carried out in institutional Web teams, knowledge of the tools and use of the tools is likely to be of interest to others within the institution, including staff in other support services (such as the Library and IT services), academic staff, researchers and students.

This session will explore ways in which Social Web services can be used to enhance one’s professional profile, tools for monitoring their effectiveness and best practices for using the tools.
