Social Networking - Finding Good Healthcare Information on Social Networking sites

Social networking can help you learn plenty about all aspects of your health care, from prevention, through symptoms and diagnosis, treatment options and disease management.

Social networking is exactly what it sounds like: conversations with others on a casual or social basis. Offline (not on the web) it would be like having lunch with a group of friends, chatting in the coffee shop or even going to a party. Online, through the web, it's a way of carrying on conversations with people you know and people you don't know, but with whom you have mutual interests.

Whereas blogs, wikis and websites are one-way communications (they all talk TO you), social networking sites are for sharing in all directions.

If you've ever chatted through an instant message or participated in a forum or support board (like the one here at patient empowerment or at any of the health websites), then you have already participated in social networking, perhaps without realizing it.

Now there are dozens of social networking websites, built simply to help people carry on conversations with each other. You've probably heard some of their names, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Plaxo, LinkedIn and many others.
