This editorial from the Public Education and Media Relations Committee of the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (POSNA) provides a primer for pediatric orthopaedists on the use of social media in practice. It is an adjunct to the recently produced podcast focused on the same subject. Social media has proven to be a useful means for physicians to educate patients and colleagues, collaborate with peers, and promote causes and organizations to optimize overall orthopaedic patient care. Social media ambassador members from POSNA discuss ways to get started, use, and stay out of trouble when navigating the social media arena.
