Social Media, Standards & You
IEEE Standards Education e-Magazine, 3rd Quarter 2013
By Karen Bartleson and Sydney Burns

A critical part of maintaining a well-rounded education includes employing self-education techniques. Though there is an array of content circulating the web concerning engineering and standards, below you will find some hidden gems to add to your collection of self-education materials. By being involved in the current conversations on these sites, you can become an active member of the community. Social media today is viewed as a tool to connect young and experienced professionals to the world around them, and become more involved in their industry than ever before. Commenting on videos, articles, and forums is highly encouraged, although simply consuming content for yourself is beneficial too. Due to the wide spectrum of topics covered in these publications, there is always something valuable for everyone. Here are some excellent portals for self-education on standards and related topics:
