Presentation title
Social Media and the Innovations in Research: Opportunities and Challenges
Presentation abstract
While research in communication patterns, collaboration, and discussion in the digital platform is ongoing, there are new trends in linguistic research is to understand and study the e-discourse and the digital lingo. Such research has open new pathways for educators and linguistic researchers globally. With more people today actively engaging, communicating and reflecting on all aspects of life via Social Networking Sites (SNSs), this has surely open avenues for accessibility to a wealth of naturally occurring data for researchers to tap and to understand the broader areas of linguistic research. There are opportunities to study new words as well as the early phase of the establishment of the words, via the popular social media platforms such as Twitter, WhatsApp, Telegram and Facebook. I will share some insights in the current areas of research in applied linguistics in the digital era with focus on studies done in the Malaysian context. The challenges that come along with this innovation in research interest and the need to understand the digital lingo will be discussed. The presentation will end with some ethical challenges as each social media research context is unique.
