Read this article about smart researchers who have used social media to publicize academic research successfully!
“Alex Baker and Chris Rose, two PhD students sent a helium balloon up to the edge of space, with two cameras in an insulated box suspended below. They uploaded the resulting footage on YouTube, along with a summary of how they built the device.” This story was featured on the BBC and Channel 4 news websites and in various local papers and radio stations. It generated so much interest that Alex and Chris were interviewed on ITV Daybreak. So much visibility just because they took the effort to promote their own work!
