A report in the Journal of Medical Internet Research found that younger physicians have a relaxed attitude toward the use of social media in their professional lives. The study found that more than half of the surveyed physicians thought communicating with colleagues on social media was okay. Eighty percent said they didn’t worry or only worried a little about internet privacy.

The reports suggests young physicians may not recognize the ramifications of their online identities and could benefit from instruction on the use of social media, including digital professionalism, online privacy, and patient information privacy.
