Also, a Twitter identity… As of February 2012- 6471 followers.
FB page created DURING the debate…. And within 2 hours of forming of the FB page- 141K likes….
SoMe is about you- the user.
Specifically, for how the healthcare professional can utilize SoMe tools.
(Social) leadership begins with knowing how to navigate the field and familiarizing yourself with all the equipment. With current shifts in communication, I feel its necessary to start training for social leadership to stay current.
Many Do’s- more than Don’ts…. Unofficial, and written policy that HC professionals all stick to- found on multiple sites. Again Virtual World= respect it like the real World. Remember that- Anything you post should be treated as if it can show up the next day on the front page of the NY Times. Be aware of the perception you create. ‘Virtual perception” is reality.
4 P’s to remember in virtual world:Social networking is online= Public domain, no longer privatePosting online is permanent; can be deleted, but may be archivedProfessional liability risks (violations of medical code of ethics, HIPAA, employer or medical staff policy)Anonymity cannot by guaranteed; privacy can be violated
4 P’s to remember are the same for the everyday real world: they may come instinctively, but we act and practice within these boundaries daily. We simply need to extend them into SoMe.
Sites we will try to visit today.
Start with some stats….
Facebook remains the most popular, and most internationally visible…
Launched Dec 2009, invitation only. Dec 2011- 11 million visits/week. Jan 2012- 11.7 million unique visitors= fastest that any site has ever reached the 10 million unique visitor mark.
February 12…. Finding about the SOTU on G+
Researching #SOTU on Twitter….
In conclusion, I would like to give you my 2 cents on why we should even bother investing anytime on learning all this. I think it would be fantastic if we were familiar with what is available to us on the web and use it with confidence, so that it can help streamline our lives and the information available on the web. It has become an the most current, effective way of communication and information-sharing. I would like to see more expert-generated content alongside user-generated content.I wonder if we as a medical community actually have an ethical responsibility to create more of a voice and presence in this ocean of chatter that clearly desires knowledge ??? should we as the experts managing the messages to the public? Since someone else is already there, so why not us?…….
