PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES HAVE BEEN HESITANT TO EMBRACE SOCIAL MEDIA 4 “Replying to online interactions” “Reporting adverse events”“Don’t have the resource” “Technical challenges” “Lack of knowledge about how to successfully use social media” “Lack of regulatory transparency” “Don’t know how to measure it effectively” Why are pharma companies hesitant to use social media?
