Abstract: How can blogs, twitter, FaceBook, LinkedIn and other social networking tools be used in conjunction with operations research? In this panel discussion, we discuss a number of ways in which operations research has been successfully used to improve scientific literacy, recruit students, and increase knowledge about our field in the general public. We will also discuss new social networking challenges.
