Did you know that a recent study revealed that 61 percent of engineers use social media for work-related activities?

Facebook is, as usual, the platform of choice, with more than two-thirds (67 percent) of engineers favouring that channel, ahead of LinkedIn (43 percent), Google+ (33 percent) and Twitter (22 percent).

Learning is cited as the main reason for using social media, and 60 percent of engineers use these tools to help find new products or solutions.
