University and social networks: adapt or be left behind

With just over fifteen years social networks have become indispensable for society, with billions of users. They have become the main sources of information and sharing of content for many of them, especially the youngest. Communication has changed in a profound and disruptive way. 

Social platforms have multiplied since then and each passing year there is an exponential increase in their infiltration among internauts. In fact, they have practically become the main sources of information and content sharing for a large number of users, especially for young people.


Read this article published on the digital magazine 365UPF with the opinions of teachers and researchers on the subject and the contributions of Angela Leis and Miquel Angel Mayer, members of the Integrative Biomedical Informatics group of GRIB stressing the potential of social networks to detect and predict health issues and their role in the classroom.
