Social media offers a very efficient and effective means of communications, especially for promotional and marketing purposes. In the context of the TIMON project social media plays a vital role, since many of the apps that will be developed, most notably the TIMON Collaborative Ecosystem, will borrow features from the way current social media networks work.
Many of the TIMON apps and services will rely on network cooperation and engaging users in providing information that could help others. This will also be a fundamental idea of the TIMON social media strategy. TIMON will seek to involve relevant stakeholders, which would be interested in keeping up-to-date with the project and its developments, as well as providing useful feedback and comments on the TIMON apps and ultimately becoming active contributors to the TIMON Collaborative Ecosystem. All contacts gained via TIMON activities on social networks will be invited to join and contribute to the TIMON Collaborative Ecosystem.
The TIMON consortium has decided to make use of three of the most popular social media networks – Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn – in order to maximise the reach of TIMON. Each of these social media networks has their own target audience, and therefore TIMON will use them differently. Facebook will help engage the student community, whereas TIMON activities on LinkedIn and Twitter will aim to attract industrial stakeholders.
