Networking is an important part of professional practice for health professionals. Finding out what is happening elsewhere and establishing working contacts and relationships helps to keep you linked in to your profession or your area of interest.

Social Media is one way to do this. Facebook and Twitter, for example, are two popular social media platforms being used by groups to share information on professional topics.
