Title: To Tweet or Become Extinct?: Why Surgeons Need to Understand Social Networking
Description: The use of social networking sites, such MySpace, Face book, Twitter, YouTube and other as a means of communication is exploding, particularly among millions of young people. Social networking sites have been increasingly adopted by many online health-related professional and educational services. Social networking may represent an effective way for surgeons to better serve, i.e., to communicate, to educate, to care, for their patients, the public, medical students, residents and the general public. In this session, we will inform surgeons about how surgeons can use social networking and the potential uses and abuses of social networking sites. You can follow this panel discussion now (premeeting) and live (during the panel) on Twitter @ "#ACS2010".
