5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog

5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog | Social Media and Healthcare | Scoop.it
SlideShare is a great platform for visual content and an amazing company: in just a few years, it has become the YouTube of presentations, one of the Top 150 sites in the world with an impressive 3 Billion views per month from 60 million unique visitors. Perhaps like many others, I originally thought of SlideShare as a platform to use only on specific occasions: when I had talked at a conference, when we had produced great slides worth sharing or when we had something specifically visual to communicate. I had had great experience and results but I don’t talk to conferences every day and so I sometimes felt I was missing out. And then, one night of September last year, I heard Jason Miller present at one of our #leancontent events and it became all clear: the team and I realized we could use SlideShare in a very different way - not just as a tool to recycle and share what you already created for other purposes but as a media channel that we would update on a regular basis. In a word, as a visual blog.

We decided to try it: over the next few months, we tried to publish at least every other week to SlideShare, integrating it in our content calendar alongside our blog and our Scoop.it content curations.

These are the first results after 4 months running this experiment. Continue reading →

The Science of Storytelling

The Science of Storytelling | Social Media and Healthcare | Scoop.it

Many studies show us that our brains prefer storytelling to facts.When we read facts, only the language parts of our brains work to understand the meaning. When we read a story, the language parts of our brains and any other part of the brain that we would use if we were actually experiencing what we’re reading, light up.This means that it’s easier for us to remember stories than facts. Our brains can't make major distinctions between a story we’re reading about and something we are actually doing....

Social media Saturday: 5 excuses healthcare providers use for not blogging

Social media Saturday: 5 excuses healthcare providers use for not blogging | Social Media and Healthcare | Scoop.it
There are many reasons healthcare providers often give as reasons they worry about participating in social media. After all, starting a blog can take weeks. Podcasting can take many more hours to create each episode than the actual length of that episode. And they are harder to create sporadically. Here are five “excuses” commonly given for not blogging, podcasting or creating content and my thoughts on how and why you can overcome them.
