The number of patients using social media and the number of applications and solutions used by medical professionals online have been sky-rocketing in the past few years, therefore the rational behind creating a well-designed, clear and tight handbook of practical examples and case studies with simple pieces of suggestions about different social media platforms is evident. While the number of e-patients is rising, the number of web-savvy doctors who can meet the expectations of these new generations of patients is not, this huge gap can only be closed by providing medical professionals with easily implementable, useful and primarily practical pieces of advice and suggestions about how they should use these tools or at least what they should know about these, so then when an e-patient has an internet-related question, they will know how to respond properly. As all medical professionals regardless of their medical specialties will meet e-patients, this issue with growing importance will affect every medical professionals which means there is a huge need for such a easily understandable handbook.​

The use of social media around the world has exploded in recent years, with the number of monthly active users of Facebook and Twitter estimated to be one billion and one quarter billion, respectively. Physicians and medical trainees are among the users of social media, raising questions of how Facebook, Twitter, and other novel online tools may best be harnessed to further medical research, patient care, and educational pursuits. Because social media enables an immediate exchange of information and ideas around shared areas of interest, it has fostered communication and collaboration among a global network of researchers, clinicians, patients, and learners. Social Media in Medicine reviews a range of topics, from research ethics to medical education, and includes personal reflections by clinicians and learners that represent diverse opinions about the role of social media in medicine. The book is relevant to all healthcare stakeholders and will hopefully encourage ideas and questions to generate more research into the use of social media in medical research, patient care, and education. This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Review of Psychiatry.

Combining the most popular social networking sites (SNS), Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, and Pinterest, the number of social networking users has exceeded two billion (Jain, 2012). The average American spends a minimum of thirty-seven minutes per day on SNS which surpasses any other internet activity, including email (Adler, 2014). The high number of users and the amount of time people spend social networking has given rise to an increased interest of research on social medical and mental health. For example, several studies have shown that extended social media use increases depression (Veretilo & Billick, 2012), symptoms of bipolar mania, narcissism, and histrionic personality disorder in adults 18-35 (Rosen, Whaling, Carrier & Cheever, 2012) and decreases self-esteem among adolescents (Shapiro & Margolin, 2014). Surprisingly, few research studies have focused on what role social media has in psychotherapy in general and more specifically, in family therapy. This study explored potential impact of social media, concentrating on the unique challenges in work with couples and families. This study used Media Ecology theory as a guide which focuses on the impact of technology on humans (McLuhan, 1994) Media Ecology theory informed an understanding of how social media is intersecting with the therapeutic process. The Couple and Family Therapist Social Media Questionnaire was a survey developed specifically for this study. Using email and social media outlets, the survey was distributed and completed nationally by 232 therapists. The survey explored four primary domains 1) therapists personal and professional use of social media 2) comfort with technology, 3) risk taking and social media use, and 4) implications for possible ethical violations with social media use in therapy. Results indicate 1) therapists who are more comfort with technology are recommending clients use social media to build social supports, 2) therapists having a more sensation seeking personality is independent of their likelihood to integrate social media into clinical practice, and 3) therapists are engaging in potentially risky behaviors via social media. More specifically, younger therapists are posting about clients on their personal social media pages.
