Abstract

Social media pervades our everyday lives. Indeed, living without social media is often harder than infusing its use into a novel environment. This Member Briefing discusses the legal and practical implications of using Facebook groups as a form of cyber collaboration (i.e., “physician-to-physician collaboration”) — breaking down the geographic, time, and hierarchical barriers by putting online the concept of “conference.”
