In a discussion on Facebook just now I was prompted to revisit my old blog post about this. It may be interesting reading for contacts here. Basically I thought Twitter was the most useful social networking tool for me as an academic. Academia.edu very poor, and I've since left that site, very concerned about their moves (albeit understandable) to monetise freely-given research with often dubious copyright status.

The blog post linked to above is a few years old now, and doesn't mention Dreamwidth at all, or even Livejournal. I'm still figuring out how to fit Dreamwidth into my various bloggings. I have my personal academic blog, as well as my genealogy one, and others. I'm thinking of resurrecting my mini book review posts, and starting them afresh here. It would be nice to record my thoughts on what I'm reading in a little more detail than my scores on Goodreads, and here is as good a place as any. I should be able to manage capsule reviews, from time to time. Fingers crossed!

Academia.edu is trying to persuade me to take up their offer of a personal homepage, which is really a relaunched profile page with some ideas from Facebook, or so it seems to me at first glance.
