Online, web-based social media tools like Facebook and Twitter have revolutionized how STEM scientists can engage and connect into massive, real-time global networks. In this chapter, we discuss how to develop your online professional identity, identify a suite of social media tools you can choose from (and why), and show you how to engage with the "Big Three" of social media today: Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. We also tackle five myths of social media that many scientists are concerned about. We highlight the value of online conversations in tracking cutting-edge research, building your professional networks, boosting your visibility as a leader in your field and finding new career opportunities. Welcome to the twenty-first century of science and research!
