Healthcare Social Media Week in Review: December 3, 2012

I’ve been on a social media infographic and statistics kick lately.  With the data from the Pew Internet & American Life Project, along with some of the great statistics from comScore I’ve been staring at numbers for days.  In this week’s HCSM Week in Review I get to share some of the great information I’ve found along the way.

  • Digital Strategist Neil James writes an interesting piece on Millennials and their social media engagement with healthcare providers.  Check out some of the great statistics James reports on from a recent survey of US adults.  One in Five Millennials Follow a Healthcare Provider on Social Media
  • A few months ago University California Davis released a study about healthcare patients and how they were using the Internet.  Chris Boyer writes about the results of that study along with data for a recent Pew study and Cybercitizen study out of Europe.  Patients use digital, right?
  • The other day I stumbled upon a really great YouTube video from author and speaker Erik Qualman.  The video is part of a series called Social Media Revolution and details some really interesting social media statistics.  The video has some spazzy music, so you may want to mute your speakers, unless a dance party in the middle of your waiting room is okay.  Social Media 2013
  • Did you know the fastest growing age demographic on social media is 55+?  Did you know half of all Facebook users access the platform via their cell phones?  Check out these great social media statistics.  The State of Healthcare Social Media in Statistics
  • Social media can be a very intimidating arena for the healthcare community to navigate.  It is also an amazing place to connected patients, providers, advocates, and more.  This infographic helps breakdown what social media tools should be used and when to use them.  Healthcare Social Media: Choose the Best Tools for the Job
