Social Media 101: A Crash Course for Physicians

Join HCPLive for a free one-hour webinar, "#SocialMedia in Medicine," and see how you can market your practice and build your caseload via social media, learn how to follow a medical conference on Twitter and use hash tags to find real-time information on any topic, and more!

Some doctors are hesitant to adopt social media because of common misconceptions. This webinar will dispel the myths and show how it can help you and your practice do amazing things.

Social media dominates our world today. Whether it's following real-time conversations about specific events, sharing personal information with friends, or simply to network, there's something for everyone. Knowing just how to utilize these various sites can prove to be very worthwhile.

However, the most common argument against joining social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn is that it takes too much time to become familiar with the platforms. The irony here is that when users do take the time to become familiar with them, it can serve them in their professional lives and save them time and money. For instance, have you ever wanted to follow or attend a conference without ever leaving your home or office? It's easier than you might think.

If you've been hesitant to join the social sphere because you're concerned about the time needed to invest, or because you've been buying into the stereotype that social media is a waste of time for people who want to share about "what they've had for lunch," then it's time to throw everything you think you know out the window and join us for a one-hour webinar, "#SocialMedia in Medicine," to discuss topics such as:

• The difference between fans, followers, and friends.

• How to follow a medical conference on Twitter.

• Using hash tags to find real-time information on any topic.

• How to market your practice and build your caseload via social media.
