  • Egy szubjektív vélemény
    Azt gondolom, hogy egy szak-blogger kétféle szereplővé válhat: aggregáló és/vagy termelő. Könnyebb olvasgatni és megosztani, mint tapasztalatokat megfogalmazni, eredeti megközelítéseket dobni be a köztudatba, mellőzött problémákkal előhozakodni, stb. Nem vitás, szükség van mindkét szereplőre, de véleményem szerint a közeljövőben elszaporodnak az aggregátorok és felértékelődnek a termelők, ugyanis ténylegesen ők viszik előbbre a világot.

Social media in my life

  1. 1. Zoltán Cserháti University of Debrecen Medical School and Health Science Center Debrecen, Hungary
  2. 2. The beginning… <ul><li>I am a med ical student in Debrecen. I play in the university volleyball team and I like reading, driving. </li></ul><ul><li>My life changed in the autumn of 2008 … </li></ul><ul><li>Why? </li></ul><ul><li>I began to attend to the worl d's first med 2.0 course , the aim of which was to show the newest and easiest ways of using the internet in my medical s tudies and work . </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The reason why I started to attend this lecture series was partly because I had heard that it was a unique course. On the other hand, I have always been so excited about the world and the future of internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Now, making this presentation, I am think ing about how difficult it is to give a summary of all the branches and services of web 2.0. </li></ul><ul><li>This is beyond my scope , Bertalan Meskó, M.D. is the one competent to deal with this. </li></ul><ul><li>But I should mention a few basic things which made a good impression on me. </li></ul>
  4. 5. What does social media mean to me? <ul><li>I am sure that anyone who makes a web 2.0 or social media presentation begins with showing what it is at all . Well, I will not . </li></ul><ul><li>I will demonstrate – through my p ersonal experience s – the excellent services I use every day. Those which are necessary for a student in the 21 st century. </li></ul><ul><li>I will show you how the use of internet will become more simple in your everyday life. </li></ul>
  5. 6. From the view of a medical student <ul><li>I decided to start with a Hungarian personal blog – called „Thinking and Reasoning – from the view of a medical student” (MeReNgŐ OkfEjtéS… - Egy medikus szemszöge) </li></ul><ul><li>There are many ways of creating a blog and managing with it. I heard about a lot of methods for it during the course. </li></ul><ul><li>I had simple plans. My goal is to help those people who are looking for authentic medical news on the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>I would like to share my favourite health news with everyone. So, I have begun… </li></ul>
  6. 7. The first steps… <ul><li>I registered on , and I have become a medical blogger . It was a long time for me to learn how to post or share something. There are lots of rules what you need to keep. For example: </li></ul><ul><li>I use different websites as sources and I always mark them in every post. It is an important rule to keep as you can confirm the authenticity of the information you supplied by this. </li></ul><ul><li>I use simple and clear words. I noticed that my style and my point of view is changing continuously . </li></ul><ul><li>I use my real name and my own opinion. I pay attention to give some advice as well, however, I always do it carefully, as I am a medical student and not a doctor yet. </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>First blogpost: </li></ul><ul><li>2008.10.13. </li></ul><ul><li>Posts: 183 </li></ul><ul><li>PageRank: 4. </li></ul><ul><li>Visitors: 26.657 </li></ul>
  8. 9. Medicina Online <ul><li>The next step was to create something that was useful for everyone, especially for medical students. </li></ul><ul><li>Me and one of my my colleagues, Anita Brojnás M.D. decided to make a study collection helping us to learn on-line. We collected materials for all medical university courses, and selected the best e-learning sites as well. </li></ul><ul><li>One of them is called Medicina Online , which is a dynamically developing site containing English and Hungarian links, medical videos, pictures and cases. </li></ul><ul><li>We collected links from other medical schools as well. </li></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>First blogpost: </li></ul><ul><li>2009.02.27. </li></ul><ul><li>PageRank: 3. </li></ul><ul><li>Visitors: 10.187 </li></ul><ul><li>Links: 322 </li></ul>
  10. 11. On weekdays… <ul><li>In my opinion you do not need to browse 50-60 sites on weekdays. Choose only some simple ones and use those! the! </li></ul>
  11. 13. <ul><li>What was my plan? I did not have any serious plan, I only followed social media. Maybe my blog is not so succesfull and popular yet, but the range of those showing interest to it is becoming wider and wider. I spend a lot of time with blogging and surfing on the internet. From the very beginning I always write enthusiastically about my topics. That’s the secret. </li></ul><ul><li>There are a lot of web 2.0 applications that I can use. </li></ul><ul><li>Here are the bests of them! Try these! </li></ul>

It contains 80 medical topics, refers to 3000 resources and you can reach it in 17 languages. </li></ul><ul><li>You can dynamically f ollow its resources through PeRSSonalized Medicine that is a free, easy-to-use, multi-lingual aggregat ion of quality medical information , which lets you select your favourite resources and read the latest news and articles about a medical specialty or a medical condition in one personalized place. </li></ul><ul><li>I think this is the easiest way to follow the medical news. I am plesured that my Hungarian blog can be found among its cited medical blogs. </li></ul>
  13. 15. Facebook <ul><li>Maybe the best site for sharing something or to have good connections. </li></ul><ul><li>More than 800 million active users . More than 50% of the active users log in to Facebook every single day . </li></ul><ul><li>If Facebook were a country, it would be the world’s 3rd largest one. </li></ul><ul><li>Roughly 1 billion pieces of content are </li></ul><ul><li>shared daily.
