Abstract:Scientific dissemination is an activity that is rigorously worked, often on high-impact platforms where it consists of a high level of rigor, there are currently many ways to report on academic progress, but almost none that attracts the attention of young people. Therefore, the following research has been carried out to understand what are the factors that affect the massification of information by young people, and how to introduce them into a scientific research work.
The following research determines what incidence social networks have as a means of scientific publication. First, data was collected from different studies carried out by various researchers from the University of Guayaquil, Faculty of Philosophy, Literature and Educational Sciences, guided by the research department. Once the articles have been obtained, their respective publication will be carried out by social networks, specifically on Facebook. Summaries and abstracts were used in order to make the information more "digestible" for a youth audience. In this social network we can obtain data such as the number of times the document was shared, the number of likes and the number of positive responses with their respective comments; This will allow us to interpret how this influences the criteria of the students regarding the scientific articles that are elaborated and published.
This statistical analysis was carried out through the Facebook platform and under a research criterion in which the responses of the students regarding the articles that are published will be reviewed and, accordingly, a level of confidence will be obtained from each of the alternatives that are observed with respect to teachers and with respect to the articles worked on. In the end we will be able to give a judgment of the value of the utility that will be able to carry out scientific dissemination through an unconventional tool such as the use of social networks.
