  1. I agree with everything you and Adam have said on this issue here. But I’m guessing that once again, the healthcare industry will be dragged kicking and screaming–and several years late–into full participation in social media. The adoption curve for new technologies in healthcare always seems to be a bit slow. But there are obvious advantages and I’m sure the industry will catch up when it comes to social media.

    And regarding the marketing piece of social media – it’s become a major component of what we do for our clients at Dowling & Dennis.
