Social media has changed the face of the world forever and your hospital needs to jump on the bandwagon by utilizing it for health care.
We all know about many different kinds of businesses using social media from stores to social justice organizations but hospitals have also jumped on the bandwagon. There are many reasons for hospitals using social media, but here are four great reasons why.
Just because someone jumps into the water, doesn’t mean they can swim. Many hospitals are figuratively doing just that, and finding out that there’s more to the social media ocean than what appears on the surface. There are, however, specific things that hospitals can do to successfully utilize social media in reaching distant lands of opportunity.
According to a recent study, most hospitals already have social accounts; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. YouTube has increased traffic to hospital websites by 119%.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean that these platforms are being used to their full capabilities. In fact, according to professors from the University of Virginia and MIT, hospitals are commonly underutilizing social media, even heading in the wrong direction.
What’s the lastest social media news? Instagram Video. Facebook announced the new service yesterday, and now, Vine has a strong competitor to worry about. While Vine has 13 million users, Instagram boasts 130 million users. Since Instagram Videos and photos can both be shot in the same app, many are predicting that most users will choose to make short videos on the same app that they can take and edit pictures with, rather than having to go to a separate one just to make a short video.
Vine is the new kid on the social media block. The app allows users to create 6-second videos about anything, then share them within the app and on other social media sites, especially Twitter. (Think of it as the 140-character approach to video production). Plus, videos made on Vine can be embedded on web pages and blogs.
Smartphone and tablet apps are, by nature, immersive and experiential. I mean, don’t even try to talk to me while I’m playing Jetpack Joyride or Angry Birds. Part of the reason why apps have caught on so successfully is that they make us want to use them. And while 25% of apps that are downloaded are never opened by users again, that means 75% are. And one thing that can help your app be one of the 75% is an excellent user experience – and awesome audio can help you do just that.
