Social Media – One more tool in an Engineer’s toolbox
As an early adopter, I am always looking for more information to feed my technology passion, help out in my job at Texas Instruments, and to meet new like-minded individuals. Today, I have multiple communication channels that I use regularly that opens up a world of information, resources, and people to me that I would have never dreamed of years ago in my career in technology.
Judging from the astronomical numbers reported by Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc., I am not the only one leveraging social media on a daily basis.
I actively use social media channels like Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Quora, various industry blogs and technical forums like TI E2E for my job. Some of the reasons I’m on these channels is to research trends, review product specifications and look at market research. When I hit a wall at work, I use social media to ask technical questions and get support or training, and can even review presentations and papers from all the tradeshows and conferences I can’t possibly attend.
While I have yet to find one social media source that addresses all my needs, I have enjoyed more tools in my toolbox, which has definitely made me more productive and better informed.
