How relevant is social media to physicians? The title speaks to it all. This amazes even me. I mean I have been working at this for years, and I never imagined I would earn CME courses. Will I be ‘grandfathered’ as a certified social butterfly?
Will I have to meet CME requirements annually to participate on twitter, Facebook or Google plus, as well ? Since I have about ten years of experience on social media I want to nominate myself to be on the ‘Board’ of the Joint Commission of Social Media in Medicine’. My credentials include a self-nomination’ as expert in social media, SEO, semantics, entrepreneur, one of the original founding users of Google plus and a pioneer of Hangout heavens.
