I am always interested to track the growing influence of social media in providing information from trusted sources. As the numbers of people using Twitter continue to grow there is now an impressive range of knowledge available online and people are very willing to share information and experiences . Whilst it is easy to run a google search on any topic it would appear that people are using Twitter as a further filter to gain recommendations about care resources. This certainly has implications for funders, practitioners, care providers and commissioners of care services.
Thanks to everyone who contributed their thoughts and retweeted my request for recommendations.
