With teenagers being so into Facebook and Twitter, I want to show that it could have a really negative effect on your life style. People are always so hurt by what others say and do on social networking and it could lead them into a state of depression. Since you cannot see the person you are harming they dont know how badly the really are affecting them.
Arielle Mendelson's curator insight, May 24, 2013 2:08 PM

The question is, do lonely people turn to social media or does social media make people lonely? 

The people who spend the most amount of time on social media have more feelings of isolation and depression than those who go on it for a quick look. People say the main reason they feel lonely after looking at Facebook is because of envy and the second reason is because of lack of responses. This has become such a large issue and has led to research being done because Facebook is used worldwide and anyone can feel envy. 

SP-Index's curator insight, May 27, 2014 12:02 PM

Could your employees be depressed or isolated because of their over use of social networks. Being able to identify pockets of low morale in your business is crucial for future success. Social isolation manifesting itself as a Facebook profile is not going to add any value to your customers, colleagues, suppliers, or brand. You can use SP Index to be more aware of your employees use of the web in order to offer support, education and improvements.

Social media benefits in the healthcare industry | MDsuite

Social media benefits in the healthcare industry | MDsuite | Facebook's effects on its users | Scoop.it

Social media does not have an overwhelming participation rate within the healthcare industry. According to a survey conducted by The Clinical Advisor, only 45 percent of participants revealed that they use some form of social media for their practice. This is especially low when compared to the findings of the 2014 Social Media and Marketing Industry Report, which published that 97 percent of marketers incorporate social media into business promotion. Facebook, Twitter and other resources are very important tools that any clinic or practice would find especially beneficial within the healthcare industry. 

Patient support
The biggest priority of any healthcare provider is patient care. Social media gives a practice the ability to constantly provide comfort and support. By posting information about conditions, support group meetings and other valuable material for patients and their families, the communication and patronage that many individuals desire is easily provided. Just as a patient portal offers constant availability of personal health information, social media offers similar advantages. 

First and foremost, the easily accessible material involves patients in their own healthcare. This participation increases healthy behavior and improves relationships between patients and providers. By creating a venue for outreach on Twitter or Facebook, healthcare professionals are able to expand their presence in patients' lives. 

Additionally, there is the ability to create a way for patients to easily reach out to practices with questions and concerns. Perhaps a practice could establish a date and time to offer patients the opportunity to tweet questions to a provider. This is not only a chance to improve relationships with current patients, but also reach out and encourage concerned individuals toschedule appointments with the practice.

Provider Support
Employees in the healthcare industry also benefit from social media. Whether professional networking on LinkedIn or seeking advice on Sermo, social media can positively impact the individuals who make up a practice. 

Networking is a great way to connect with old colleagues, classmates, and potential candidates or employers. LinkedIn offers professionals the opportunity to find support in their careers and share insights and information with colleagues. Additionally, LinkedIn can be used by a practice to recruit employees and deliver unique content to professionals and patients.  

Community is especially important among those in this industry. Social networks like Sermo and Allnurses.com offer professionals the opportunity to pose questions and participate in discussions with peers. Fostering communication among other healthcare providers will help improve knowledge and mastery of healthcare. 

Implementing the use of social media in a practice will undoubtedly provide many benefits. If your practice doesn't already integrate these tools, consider using them to boost support for both patients and providers alike.
