Abstract

Research on the use of social media in healthcare indicates that Twitter is the most commonly used platform for disseminating public health information, and has been used effectively when dealing with emergencies, such as natural disasters. This chapter focuses on the impact of social media–particularly Twitter–in raising awareness of public health issues among tertiary students engaged in health-related degrees. It provides practical suggestions for educators interested in using social media for pedagogical and communication purposes.
