Most people have social media accounts whereby we can have profiles, see friends and suggested content everyday. There is now a new trend of healthcare focus in social networking. There are a number of specifically dedicated services for physicians and patients. These include: Doctors.net.uk, Medcenter, Dooox, Esanum, Egora, Doktorsitesi, iVrach, Doximity or Sermo and SmartPatients or PatientsLikeMe.

The above mentioned are online communities where patients and caregivers learn from each other about treatments, clinical trials, the latest science, and how it all fits into the context of their experience. Due to social media listening, a large amount of information can be gained about a particular company, individual, product or brand.

Apple has Apple Health, Google has Google Fit and Samsung has S Health. Now, Facebook is also reportedly jumping into the health bandwagon and developing its own healthcare platform. The social networking site has plans of building a platform for developing health-related apps and establishing online communities where users who share common health problems can interact and provide support for one another. Facebook bought Oculus VR as their mission is to make it possible to experience anything, anywhere through the power of virtual reality. Social networking as we know today will soon evolve using platforms, which will enable even more useful, entertaining and personal experiences.

As we are social there is no doubt it is necessary nowadays to have our own dedicated Website, YouTube Channel or Facebook page available. However, it is not enough to create them. We must fulfill them with some interesting, fresh and engaging content and let our customer find them easily. This is why "search" is one of the most powerful elements of Network Resources. Additionally, it is also great to get some feedback by measurement implemented, to check if content provided fulfills our customers' needs and expectations.

If you would like to know more about how search engine optimization works, or if you need professionally-made medical content, please contact us at Animativ Health.
