Do you use social media to communicate your science? If so, how?

I am a hydrogeologist at Institut Teknologi Bandung in Indonesia. Compared to other geoscience/geology field of study, hydrogeology is not very common or first choice for students. So I am now putting all my efforts to socialize it in any way I can. I use Twitter and Facebook (both are connected) because many of my students use these soc-med. Then I also build 2 web pages on WordPress and Blogger platform. Both web pages are identical just to reach out to various kind of users. I also connect both blogs to my Twitter and Facebook account. I also use Google+ to spread any scientific news. This is for the Twitter and Facebook haters :-). To have a good network I join Research Gate. To combined my postings to all of my soc-meds, I use “” and “Yoono” services. Hopefully all the hard works and time spent on these will pay off.
