OA: Social Media and the Patient Experience - Jnl American College of Radiology



open access - Journal of the American College of Radiology

  Facebook is currently the dominant home for disease-centric patient groups [23].
 Patients have also begun organizing on other social media platforms via hashtags.
  Suffice it to say, peer-reviewed literature will become increasingly available at a price ranging from cheap to free.
  Perhaps more important, by engaging on social forums, physicians may better learn what questions our patients are asking when they are not sitting in examination rooms.
 The vast amount of information that is produced on social media platforms is staggering. (Fig. 1). In 2014, there were 3.3 million Facebooks posts, 120 hours of YouTube video uploaded, and 342,000 tweets every 60 seconds [28].
