In fact, many of our upcoming social media posts will be about 185th Meeting, Acoustics 23 and will contain #Acoustics23. If you will be attending, be sure to include the hashtag so that we can follow along! We are especially looking forward to the POMAs that come after the meeting!

Most liked publications social media content

If you’ve been reading the last couple Propagations posts, you know the ASA Publications Office likes to do end of year reviews looking at what content the acoustics community enjoyed. We’ve shared our most popular Across Acoustics podcast episodes as well as the most downloaded ASA publications. Now we’re going to share some of the most liked publications content across our social media accounts. Even though we share the same content on all our social media accounts, some posts get more likes on specific platforms. Check out which posts users on different platforms like the most.

Amplifying Your Acoustics Research through Social Media

In today’s digital age, sharing your acoustics research with a wider audience has never been easier. Social media platforms offer an excellent way to connect with peers, experts, and enthusiasts. To help you promote your acoustics research, we draw inspiration from the ASA Publications Guide to Social Media and provide you with valuable insights on how to create engaging and informative posts. First, decide where you want to post. Some social platforms will have character limits such as X (formerly known as Twitter) or require an image like Instagram. No matter where you decide to post, it’s essential to craft a compelling message. If you have more text space, you can engage your audience by sharing a captivating excerpt from your research with an invitation to read the full article. A simple and short approach is to start with a sentence summarizing your research, followed by the article’s DOI link. Here are some short, text-based templates that can be used for most social media sites.

  • Read my article published in [@JOURNAL] about [ONE SENTENCE SUMMARY]: [INSERT DOI LINK]
  • Have you heard? [PAPER’S TITLE] from [@JOURNAL] on [#SUBJECT] is available to read at [INSERT DOI LINK]
  • Read my latest #research on [#SUBJECT], published in [@JOURNAL]. Read here: [INSERT DOI LINK].

While some platforms don’t require visuals, we have found that images increase engagement with social posts. Your chosen figure should support and clarify the text in your post. If you want to take your social media presence to the next level, consider creating visual abstracts and GIFs to captivate your audience.

visual abstract example
Visual abstracts are eye-catching representations of your research. They should include the title, publication information, one or two key takeaways from the article, and an attention-grabbing visual element. Visual abstracts make your research more accessible and visually appealing. Download a visual abstract Twitter template here. Download a visual abstract Instagram template here.
GIF-Poster-Template
A GIF is a simple animated image and can be a fun and engaging way to share your research findings. The GIF should teach people your main takeaway, include a key figure, and explain why your findings matter. View the ASA Publications Guide to Social Media to download the ASA GIF template.
By using these templates and embracing the power of visuals and GIFs, you can effectively share your acoustics research on social media, reach a broader audience, and foster discussions within your scientific community. You can also use the Meeting Social Media Toolkit to find more resources! Embrace the opportunities that social media offers to amplify the impact of your research and contribute to the world of acoustics.
