Dr. Ting’s article about social media and anesthesiology in the March 2013 issue, “Join the #Anesthesiology Conversation Online,” fails to address a key aspect of social media in the professional setting. There is no doubt that the responsible use of social media allows anesthesiologists easy access to continue their education, stay connected, advocate and communicate for themselves, their practice or their organization. However, the online universe is fraught with potential hazards for practitioners, namely the erosion of personal-professional boundaries for practitioners and the risk of inadvertently revealing patient information. It is imperative that every article about the advantages of online social networks clearly address these risks.
