The use of social networking media, wikis, blogs, and YouTube has skyrocketed, and more and more people are using these tools to keep in touch with family, friends, and those with common interests. While many of these media target the social sphere, they also have uses in communicating science to younger audiences and in conducting citizen science. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a space for the LTER community to share how it has used web-based and social networking media, to identify best practices, and to explore new ways of using these media at LTER sites and as a network.
