Should doctors use Google+ instead of Facebook or Twitter?

Consultant Craig Koniver, M.D., says that physicians need to embrace Google+ and ignore Facebook and Twitter. Unlike Facebook, where users have several different "pages" to separate private and public content, in Google+, users set up their own Circles based upon how they want to distribute comments, he writes on KevinMD.com. "Facebook is great but is a closed system. I like having the option to post something to the general public and that is just not possible in Facebook." He also says Google+ is easier to use, and because most people have some connection to Google already, connecting is less difficult than other social media platforms. Post
