  40. 42. Study Definitions Social media is defined as internet-based applications which allow for the creation and exchange of user-generated content and includes services such as social networking, professional online communities, wikis, blogs, and microblogging. Sharing medical knowledge refers to the exchange of information, advice, ideas, reports and scientific discoveries with other physicians in the medical community.
