Hello again,

I feel that I need to clarify my previous query concerning hospitals using social networking.
By social networking I mean - wikis, blogs, Second Life, MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, etc.
My query is whether or not the hospitals as a whole use these avenues as a means of outreach to patients and the community as a whole for advertising, announcements, programming, etc.
At this point in time, I am NOT interested as to whether or not hospital libraries have access to social networking sites. I am well aware of the barriers many of us face with our IT departments in this regard, so please do not send me a dissertation about the trials and tribulations on this subject. We'll leave that for another day...
