Günümüzde kullanım oranları gittikçe artan sosyal medyadan bireyler farklı yollarla faydalanmaktadırlar. Bu keşif araştırmasında, eğitim araştırmacılarının sosyal medya kullanımları ve sosyal medyayı eğitim amaçlı bir araştırma, öğretim ve öğrenim ortamı olarak kullanmaları hakkındaki görüşleri araştırılmıştır. Bu çalışmaya eğitim alanında çalışma yapan toplam 207 araştırmacı katılmıştır. Sonuçlar, araştırmacıların %62'sinin, önceki eğitim çalışmaları için sosyal medyadan yararlandığını ve bunların %90'ının, yakın gelecekte de eğitim çalışmaları için sosyal medyadan yararlanmayı planladıklarını göstermektedir. Eğitim araştırmacılarının çoğu, eğitim çalışmalarında sosyal medyanın kullanımı hakkında olumlu düşünceye sahiptirler. Ancak eğitim çalışmalarında sosyal medya kullanımıyla ilgili literatürün yetersizliğinden şikayetçidirler. Çalışmaya katılan araştırmacılardan Bilgisayar ve Öğretim Teknolojileri Eğitimi Bölümü'nde çalışan akademik personelin sosyal medyadan daha etkili yararlandıkları görülmüştür. Genç araştırmacıların sosyal medyayı daha çok kullanma eğiliminde oldukları bulunmuştur. Aynı zamanda sosyal medyayı günlük yaşamlarında daha etkin kullanan araştırmacılar eğitim çalışmalarında da sosyal medyadan daha yoğun yararlanmaktadırlar. Eğitim araştırmacılarının teknik bilgi eksikliklerinin giderilerek sosyal medya ögelerini benimsemeleri ve kullanmaları teşvik edilebilir.

Social media is very popular on the Internet and individuals utilize from social media in different ways. The present study investigated the educational researchers’ social media uses and their opinions about using social media as a research, teaching and learning environment for educational purposes within a sample of Turkish educational researchers. A total of 207 researchers participated in this study. The results showed that 62% of the researchers utilized from social media for their previous educational studies and 90% of them planned to utilize from social media for their educational studies in the near future. Most of the educational researchers think positive about the usage of social media within educational studies, but they have complained about the insufficiency of literature. It has been seen that the researchers’ study at the Department of Computer and Instruction Technologies Education use social media more effective and younger researchers utilize from social media more and think to utilize more in faculties of education.
