Facebook pages and groups

FacebookFacebook's social networking dimension allows to bring together acedemics, students, researchers and research participants in order to work together. There are a great deal of pages dedicated to New Media research on Facebook, although a vast majority of them are just advertisements for different companies specialising in digital advertising. On the other hand, pages associated with particular New Media degrees usually have a number of insightful articles and researches linked, but that is quite often lost in accumulation of departamental information, as well as student events. As a result, it is difficult to find straighfoward resources, that could be of use.
