Social searching: Karen Blakeman

Venue: Bristol (details of the venue to be confirmed)

Date: Tuesday, 16 July, 2013 - 09:30 - 16:30

Course Outline: 
"Social" has become an integral part of search. Companies use social and professional networks to market their services and stay in touch with existing and potential customers. Conference presentations, highlights and videos are shared across multiple platforms. Researchers use social media to discuss and promote their work. And many people now use their social connections to share and ask questions. Google and Bing include social media in their results, and use your network connections to personalise your searches and those of your friends. However, they do not cover everything. Conversations start up in many different places, so knowing where to look is vital. This workshop will look at the impact of social networks on search and the specialist tools that are available.

Topics covered will include:

    Why "social" is an important part of search
    How organisations and individuals are using social and professional networks to publish and share information
    The impact of sharing, "likes" and g+1 on search results
    The networks you need to consider
    How Google and Bing incorporate social media and connections in search results - can you stop them?
    Specialist tools for social search
    Confidentiality and ethical issues
    Quality issues

You will have ample opportunity to experiment and try out the techniques for yourself and Karen will be on hand to help and advise you. Exercises are provided but you are free to explore and try out searches of your own.

Who should attend: 
This workshop is for anyone wishing to improve their search skills and understand the importance of social searching. It is suitable for all levels of experience and covers all subject areas.
