In this fall's 2008
survey, The Chicago Dental Society asked dentists a couple
questions about how they use the internet and social media. The
society found out that 11% of dentists surveyed said they
occasionally scan "review" websites such as Yelp and Angie's List to
find out what patients say about their practice. 20% of dentists
surveyed used online networking sites, with Facebook as their top choice
(15%). Other popular sites were LinkedIn (7%) and MySpace (4%).
What about you? Do you check out your ratings on Yelp or "friend"
your patients on Facebook?
