Social Media
« on: November 13, 2014, 07:50:05 AM »
So this is a bit connected to a lot of my other recent threads ... Research, Doc/internet, etc ...
but I thought maybe it could use its own general thread. 

Some possible topics:

Tips/links/info about social media (SM).

More personal stuff like what is your purpose for using SM for FA?  Which platforms (Twitter, Facebook, FAS type forums, blogs, etc.) do you use & why?  How are your IRL & online id's connected ... how public is your online id .... how much private info do you share online ... who from IRL do you "let in" to your virtual world ... has posting ever caused you problems from people making the connection who you wish hadn't?

Where do you think the big SM/health trends are heading?  What are the implications?

Other topics are fine also.

Great topic!

I have been rather private about my location and my identity over the years-- I have also firewalled my online identity in that here (and a few other places where I also maintain anonymity) I do not mix those identities. 

I have occasionally steered people here in my other guises, however, if they seem to need the information that is to be had here.  I can count on both hands the number of people that I've known online who know my ENTIRE identity, however.

As administrator here in my alternate identity, I have outed myself to others IRL in also just a handful of instances.  My close friends know that I do this-- but most of them, even, do not know the specific url of this site. 

I am not on Twitter, FB, or instagram.

Partly, this is about me-- I'm an introvert and a deeply private person.  Partly, though, it is because I can be MUCH more forthcoming and detailed about what I post here-- because without those other pieces of identifying info (and yeah, people who have been here for years and years COULD put it all together-- I'm aware) they still don't identify either me, or-- more critically-- MY FAMILY.

I've considered the use of SM for FA advocacy-- but I've concluded that mixing the two streams is unwise... all it takes is one tiny little viral thing and your family's privacy is gone.  My DD is pretty vulnerable already by virtue of being an outlier in other domains.  So.

I do this moderating and message board thing pretty well.  So I'm sticking with that.  :)
Resistance isn't futile.  It's voltage divided by current.

Thanks for sharing CM.   :heart:


I'll get back to this thread at some point ... not quite ready to discuss.

Twitter and FB -- I keep my profiles completely separate from my profile here. For privacy reasons, I do not commingle them at all and very rarely, if ever engage with the FAS accounts.

Personally I tweet and post about FAs some but not much. My FB is locked down in terms of what I allow the general public to see. I do not friend coworkers period, but with Twitter I don't likit who follows me typically.  I'm in the midst of a job search, I am keenly aware of the fact that potential employers can and like do check my Twitter feed. I don't want my feed to reflect any one thing solely, so I keep my tweets diversified, though I do tend yo tweet in cycles and when I am utterly swamped (like now) don't tweet much.
Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

Just a reminder - make sure you are seeing real docs including an allergist for FA .... don't just get your info from SM.

There is a good chance that Dr-FA-Yoda has made the Links connection.  :misspeak:   It makes one feel a little strange & vulnerable.   :hiding:


That's ok ... I was ok with letting her in.   :heart:

Hope she's not upset with me.   :hiding:   I don't think so.

It will be a don't ask, don't tell situation unless she brings the topic up.

Protective Services and/or police investigators could consider querying the internet for blogs related to children at risk for caregiver-fabricated illness in a child. These blogs, if viewed in parallel with the children's medical records, could assist medical diagnosis and legal documentation of medical fabrication and assist in protective planning for the affected children.

Quote
This is illness in the age of social media. Whereas disease was once a closely held private matter, a reason to draw the curtains and cancel all engagements, it is now, like so many other life events, a public act, documented in sometimes startlingly intimate detail on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, personal blogs, and even good-old-fashioned media like print, television, and radio. And while the benefits of such an approach are real and manifold, so too are the potential complications.

There is a right way and a wrong way to vent, share your experiences, ‘horror stories’ or ‘funny moments’ in a way that doesn’t misrepresent our profession and everyone who is a part of it or hurts healthcare consumers who may be reading your posts.
