Should your practice have a Facebook page?

Comment

We have had an active Facebook page for over a year. We've found it a great way to engage with patients and to circulate relevant information. More importantly, it's enabled us to help shape the perception of the practice among our population. We were subject to some vicious trolling on other sites - that has now ceased, as the perpetrators can see that we have a presence. The occasional negative comments do get posted, but these are easily dealt with either by hiding them (the person posting does not even realise that nobody else can see their post), or in the worst cases the user can be permanently blocked.
