LinkedIn is the professional-serious social media for physicians.

The LinkedIn groups feature might just be the best online professional forum for the conversation of healthcare and marketing ideas, material and common-interest networks. Today, LinkedIn is the third most-popular social media site (following Facebook and Twitter), with a current roll call of about 225 million users, and over 1.2 million groups. LinkedIn presents many opportunities to connect with other like-minded medical professionals and potential patients seeking information about health care, while also giving your practice a platform to market its services to the right audiences. The time is now to tap into this social platform by building credibility for your medical expertise and spreading the word about your practice. LinkedIn Groups provide a platform for professionals in the same industry or with similar interests to exchange content, post and view jobs, make business contacts, find answers,  and establish themselves as industry experts.
