Nice article by Marvin M. about engineers and the role of social medias. Will you agree with his vision?

Introduction

Traditionally, engineers and technicians met in conferences, workshops and seminars. Luckily, especially for some of us in the third world, the internet, and consequently social media, has infused all aspects of our lives, including careers.

Social media and blogging have changed how people communicate across platforms and by extension, how we conduct our business. However, though there are a number of social media platforms out there, each bears different levels of usage to an engineer. The article highlights the strengths of various platforms in creating a peer-to-peer avenue for professions in different countries.

Blogging

Many people attest to the point that engineers are paid to think, not type. Well, I counter that by saying that ideas are best explained in the text, and, of course, in electrical engineering, diagrams.
