Denise Silber, Doctors 2.0 & You Promoter

The Doctors 2.0 & You conference is both informative and unique because it mashes together healthcare and social media into one brilliant collaborative event in Paris, France. It was ahead of its time when in first launched five years ago, and it’s still evolving along with today’s technology.

Denise Silber, the event’s creator and promoter states the following about Doctors 2.0, “Our goal is to identify the ways in which the inclusion of health 2.0 tools and social media platforms can improve care and translate this into the words of a manifesto.” The site goes on to list 95 points of the manifesto and it’s something we should all read and soak in.
Although Ms. Silber has been very busy getting ready for her upcoming 2015 Doctors 2.0 & You event in Paris (June 4 and 5, 2015), we were able to catch a few minutes of her time.

Social Media Tab: Can you tell us a little about Doctors 2.0 and your next conference?

Denise Silber: Doctors 2.0 & You is going on it’s 5th edition. Our subtitle is “Innovative. Insightful. Inspiring, Doctors 2.0 & You is THE international digital health event.”Doctors20_2015_Happy_New_Year_Card

We bring together patients, professionals, managers from healthcare and tech, and even government from around the world.That’s why there is the “And You”…Whomever you are, if you’re in the health space, “you” can be involved.

The conference was one of the earliest to be “patient-inclusive,” meaning that patients are speakers, participants, part of the brainstorming, etc.

A few more points about this beloved conference. The speakers are fantastic…they are creative, humble, passionate about what they do.

I love to interview them before we make our decisions and I’d say that they become friends…By the time we meet in person at the event, we’ve had a fair bit of communication. We follow each other on social media. And it’s “profound.”

For example, this time we are going to have an amazing physician from the Philippines speaking. When her workfriends found out she’s coming, they went crazy with joy for her. It’s her dream to speak at Doctors 2.0 & You. She organized tweetchats from the Philippines, based on ours.

 

Social Media Tab: So, what are the hot topics?

doctors-20-and-you-2Denise Silber: Well, Doug, the funny thing, is that every time we turn around, there’s something new to add to the conference and yet, we can’t get rid of the earlier themes, because they are also evolving.
So, we’ll again be talking about social media and communities and mobile apps.
Google Glass was really hot in June 2014 and we have to talk about it, but in a different way, because of the shift around the product.

And now, we’re going to make space for artificial intelligence, like with IBM Watson, and Big Data and even more than before, talk about connected objects.

 

Social Media Tab: Which social media platforms do you use to promote Doctors 2.0?

Denise Silber: The usual suspects: Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Google+, but also Lanyrd which is for events.

 

Social Media Tab: We recently spotted you on twitter during a Tweetchat and noticed that you were trending on Twitter’s Top 10 in the US. Can you tell us about that and what you did to promote the chat?

Denise Silber: We are very fortunate promotionwise. Our fans are very excited about our events and they share and share information about the conference and our events. We leave at least two weeks lead to get people informed about a Tweetchat.

Social Media Tab: Since Doctors 2.0 brings together healthcare representatives from around the world, how do you see social media making an impact in the medical field?

Denise Silber: Social media is making an impact. Doctors are communicating with their peers much more regularly about news and about medical questions.
Patients are finding support from people like themselves. And we’ll be talking about the dialogue between patients and physicians, which we think is beginning to happen.

Social Media Tab: What social media advice could you give to people in healthcare who may not have heard of or tweeted in a Doctors 2.0 Tweetchat?

Denise Silber: They should definitely try one and if they can’t make it, we’ve got our transcripts up on our site. Search on transcript in our search box.

Michael-WeissSocial Media Tab: How often do you set up Tweetchats and when can we look forward to your next one?
Denise Silber: We recently had a Tweetchat about the impact of healthcare social media on the patient-doctor relationship.
We had an amazing guy named Michael Weiss from New Jersey that moderated the Tweetchat. He’s @hospitalpatient Check him out
He’s got a law degree, he’s really funny, he’s a fulltime patient and he knows a ton about producing video..How’s that for talent?

Follow us at @doctors20 on Twitter to find out when our next Tweetchat will be happening.

Social Media Tab: Thank you very much for the interview, Denise, and we wish you much success with Doctors 2.0 & You. For more information on Doctors 2.0 and the upcoming event, go to: http://www.doctors20.com/ .

News Report from Facebook: Bringing New Wind to Iowa

Facebook Article By Vincent Van SonData Center Energy Manager

When our new data center in Altoona, Iowa, starts serving traffic in early 2015, we expect it to be supplied by 100% renewable energy, as tracked by renewable energy certificates, from a new wind project in nearby Wellsburg, Iowa.We first started working on this project with RPM Access, a local wind project developer, as we were finalizing our decision to locate in Iowa. Earlier this spring, we transferred our rights to the development to MidAmerican Energy, our local utility, to build, own, and operate it.

 

A New Wind for Iowa
Not Actual – ­ Representation of Anticipated View of Project Once Completed in 2014

Construction is under way, and once it’s completed in 2014, the project will add up to 138 MW of new renewable wind capacity to the grid in Iowa – more than what our data center is likely to require for the foreseeable future. And since our Altoona data center will be based on the latest Open Compute Project designs, we expect that it will join our data centers in Oregon, North Carolina, and Sweden as some of the most advanced, efficient, and sustainable data centers in the world.

When we settled on Altoona as the location for our fourth data center, one of the deciding factors was the opportunity to help develop a new wind project in the state. The project brings additional investment and jobs to the region, and in effect it makes it possible, on an annualized basis, for 100% of our energy needs to be met entirely with one of Iowa’s most abundant renewable resources. We are committed to reaching 25% clean and renewable energy in our global data center mix in 2015, and we will continue to work with utilities and other partners on supply options for our other data centers.

We want to thank MidAmerican Energy, RPM Access, and everyone else who helped bring this about. We have a lot of work ahead of us to help connect everyone, understand the world, and build the knowledge economy – and we will continue to seek out solutions that allow us to do so in the most efficient and sustainable ways possible.

Social Media Tab supports wind energy too!

Pinterest To Test Advertisement Pins – Awaiting Your Comments

Pinterest - SocialMediaTAB.com

Pinterest – SocialMediaTAB.com

In a recent letter sent to all of their members, Pinterest explained that they want to be a profitable company and be here for years to come. You knew this was coming and no one should be shocked. It should all be taken in and accepted. Pinterest (launched March 2010) has grown very rapidly over the past few years.  Pinterest had more than 11.7 million unique users as of January 2012 and became the fastest site in history to break through the 10 million unique visitor mark. According to ComScore’s most recent numbers as of February 2013, Pinterest had 48.7 million users globally. So, now their business needs some help to keep things moving along nicely. After all, you’ve been pinning your wishlists and photos for free, right? If a few promoted pins start showing up, it could offer even more ideas. Here’s a copy of the most recent letter sent to its users in case you didn’t read it or receive it.

Just over a year ago, my wife and I welcomed our son into the world. Since his first day, I’ve been pinning fun things we can do together, right now while he’s still littleand later when he gets older. I know many of you do the same. Pinterest is where you keep your wishlists, vacation plans, dream home ideas, and other things you want to do soon and in the future.That’s why for us, it’s so important that Pinterest is a service that will be here to stay. To help make sure it does, we’re going to start experimenting with promoting certain pins from a select group of businesses.

I know some of you may be thinking, “Oh great…here come the banner ads.” But we’re determined to not let that happen. While we haven’t figured out all the details, I can say that promoted pins will be:

  • Tasteful—No flashy banners or pop-up ads.
  • Transparent—We’ll always let you know if someone paid for what you see, or where you see it.
  • Relevant—These pins should be about stuff you’re actually interested in, like a delicious recipe, or a jacket that’s your style.
  • Improved based on your feedback—Keep letting us know what you think, and we’ll keep working to make things better.

 

For our first test, we’ll promote a few pins in search results and category feeds. For example, a pin for a Darth Vader outfit from a costume shop might be promoted in a search for “halloween.” Nobody’s paying for anything yet—we want to see how things go and, more than anything, hear what you think.

Thanks so much for all your support these first few years, and we hope you’ll keep pinning with us for many years to come!

All the best, 
Ben

SO, there you have it people. What do you think of Pinterest’s new move to keep their site growing and moving to the next level? Will you continue to be a pinner? Please comment below…

Doctors 2.0 Social Media Healthcare Conference Is A Success!

doctors2013Doctors 2.0 & You is the first international conference of its kind to examine how doctors and patients are using social media, applications and web 2.0 tools to work with peers, governments, industry and payers. The conference draws on the expertise of physicians, patient communities, online and mobile tool providers, hospitals, insurers, pharmaceutical companies and governments to help address the role of new technology in healthcare from both the doctor and patient perspective.

Denise Silber, the President of Basil Strategies and her board of advisors are the brains behind Doctors 2.0 & You’s success. The Doctors 2.0 2013 conference which was held this past June in Paris, France, contained over 80 speakers from all aspects of the medical industry. It’s a great way for people to stay in touch and learn from one another. The conference, now in its third year, is growing by leaps and bounds. Participants, attendees and people of the media are already making plans for next year’s Doctor’s 2.0 Paris event which will be held on June  5-6, 2014. You can find out more details about attending at their website: http://www.doctors20.com/.

Here are some comments from the speakers and attendees of the event:

 

Berci Mesko said, “Doctors 2.0 and You in Paris is THE Medical Social Media conference of the year.”

Bernard Peyrical said, “So many people keep talking about digital, 2.0, social media… applied to the healthcare world. Doctors 2.0 & You helps make it happen, by spotting trends and talent and bringing la crème de la crème together. Doctors 2.0  & You is a best practice in Europe.”

Angel Gonzalez said, my sincere message of congratulations for all of  your effort on bringing to life this special conference that, for me, has got the category of ‘Gold-Standard’ in Health 2.0!

Giovanna Marsico said, I recommend this rendez-vous in Paris as the major event in Europe for all people interested in Health and Medicine 2.0 and Social Media.

Franck Chauvin said,   “Doctors 2.0 & You conference is a fantastic initiative, with people who can change the future of medicine for the better by exchanging their ideas with a wider global audience.”

Larry Chu said,  “This initiative truly carries great potential for the future of healthcare. I’m very proud to work closely, as partners, with Doctors 2.0 & You.”

It’s Social Media Shark Week!

Social Media Organization

Social Media Organization

With social media you might feel trapped in a shark tank. You’re slowly sinking to the bottom; drowning in posts, accounts, passwords, websites ext.  But you don’t have to be intimidated by social media anymore! It’s time to organize the mess we have on scratch pieces of paper all over our desk into one easy time-saving document. I explain a way to organize accounts with Excel and offer a few easy ideas for you non-Excel lovers out there.

How to organize your social media accounts fast, easy and FREE!

1)      Locate each and every one of your accounts. You know where they are; In the bottom of your purse, in a spiral, on a coffee stained napkin, in your car, at your desk. Find as many as you can, with my organizational workbook you can update these sheets anytime, anywhere.

 

2)      Please Click on the following to access my Excel Workbook.

Border Organizational Worksheet

 

 

My GoogleDocs account, the workbook I uploaded is open to the public. Please save to your own GoogleDocs account and edit as you see fit.

In the Organizational Workbook there’s the following…

1st Sheet- Social Media Accounts, pretty easy.

2nd Sheet- is my ‘Toolbox’, I’ll dive into my toolbox for SEO purposes. For example, you see neighborsgo.com (great for posting events, everyone votes and the highest rated is published in the paper)

3rd Sheet- this my top secret website info put your top secret info there instead.

Side note: Keeping these passwords in one place saves time. I don’t have to pull up my email, look through papers, and have my password resent to me because I forgot it. You know you’ve done it too…

3)      Replace my info with yours. Furthermore, you can have a different sheet for each client. At work I have 20 different clients at once, all with different Twitter, Blogger, Facebook and a ton more accounts. Each sheet can be labeled with client names and your username and passwords.

Remember to save my workbook to your Googledocs and edit anywhere.

Ok, so you don’t like my Excel Workbook, try these…

Cool desktop organizer for social media and clients

Virtual post-its to organize your desktop icons. This is a great idea, and it’s really fun and motivational. Upon contact, Lori will send you the file and you can customize your own for FREE. Check it out here.

Tweet Deck– Many websites suggest software to bulk manage your accounts. For example, Tweet Deck, will allow you to post a status to all your major accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare). This is great for managing 20 different Twitter accounts, but I don’t suggest posting the same content on each medium.

iGoogle– One of the best tools I’ve found is igoogle and it’s FREE. Plus you don’t have to come up with another username and password, it’s just your gmail. I can look at my blogger, gmail, RSS feed, Twitter, Facebook and many other widgets I haven’t loaded yet.

I’ll help you swim to the surface of social media before you get bitten by defeat. To find out more about the author, Megan click here!
