Three years communicating geosciences in social networks: Divulgacion Terrologa

Social networks have become important communication bridges between the scientific community and society. For this reason, on June 11, 2019, “Divulgacion Terrologa” was created. This is a Facebook and Instagram site in spanish whose objective is to accurately and clearly disclose the different processes that intervene in the dynamics of our planet. In this initiative, periodic publications are made about the different terrestrial spheres. In addition, we promote the research work of undergraduate and postgraduate geoscientists in the "Young Researchers Wednesday" section. Likewise, in the “Geoscientists in Action” section, we disseminate the work activities of geoscientists from outside the academy. On Facebook as of May 31, 2022, about 360 posts have been made. Total followers are 5200, however, the average number of people reached per post is 2200. The most viewed post reached nearly 60 thousand views. 49% of the followers are women while 51% are men. The followers of the page reside in Latin America, the United States and Europe. Our publications have been translated into English, French and German. The results obtained during this time suggest the importance of science communication in the imparting of Earth Sciences.
