Can Facebook Hurt Your Career?

There have been a lot of recent posts on the web about social media use by physicians.  It’s very, very important to think about the ethics and the risk of using Facebook, Twitter, etc if you are a physician or a physician in training. The internet lives forever… things you post now may come back years from now when you are applying for a job.   I’ve posted previously about using Facebook and other social media, but there are other, more comprehensive summaries on the web.  Take a minute and read about some of the horror stories – it may protect you!
