While a large percentage of anesthesiologists use some form of social media in their personal lives to keep up with hobbies and interests and to stay in contact with family and friends, surveys show only a minority of anesthesiologists use social media as part of their professional lives. In addition, there are many anesthesiologists who do not use social media at all and may wonder what the benefits are. Why should social media interest you?
While the benefits of social media are many, there are three aspects especially relevant to any practicing anesthesiologist today. First, social media allows you to stay current and educated. Second, it allows you to engage and connect with others. Lastly, it provides the opportunity to advocate and communicate for yourself, your practice or organization, and your profession.
