Don’t overlook social media as a great way to communicate with your patients. People are looking for doctors who care and take time to get know their patients, this is where social media can shine.
Communicating with patients using social media creates a personal connection without having an appointment. Create a discussion on your facebook page where people can go to get answers to common questions regarding scheduling or areas of expertise within your practice. The way you respond to questions or complaints can carry a lot of weight; if people see that you take concerns seriously and respond in a timely fashion to requests it shows you care.

Utilize social media as a new way to get important information to your patients. It’s a fast and free way to get important information and news to your patients.
Having a good social media presence will draw new patients in. It makes you easier to find and many potential new clients do their research for medical recommendations online. The reputation of a medical practice can be influenced by social media which is a good reason to learn how to manage yours.

Last April, I started to collect tweets containing the hashtag #twitterstorians . The idea is to question whether it is possible to capture / understand in almost real time historiographies in the making. As you all know, this hashtag was created by Katrina Gulliver.
After three months, I attempted to do a first text analysis of this #twitterstorians corpus – but it was still too tiny to be analysed. A few days ago, I attempted again to analyse it and it seemed to work, this time.

Communication technology is recognized as an important component of a virtual team (VT). Communication technologies other than social media have been linked to VT conflicts by prior research.

The researchers theorize that “feature richness” rather than “media richness” of the communication technology can be more beneficial for a virtual team since it is hoped to simultaneously work towards reducing VT conflicts. The researchers propose a conceptual research model that contributes to understanding the mediating role that social media can play in virtual team conflicts.
