Becoming a Mayo Clinic “Fan” on Facebook
By Lee Aase, Director, Mayo Clinic Social Media Network
Facebook is the world's largest and fastest-growing social networking site, with more than 150 million active users. While it started on college campuses, it's now open to anyone over 13 with an email address.
We created a so-called "fan" page for Mayo Clinic on Facebook about a year ago, to provide information about Mayo and also to give Mayo patients and their families an opportunity to tell their stories and connect with each other and with Mayo Clinic staff.
You can see parts of the Mayo Clinic page even if you don't have a personal profile on Facebook, but if you are in Facebook we hope you'll become a Mayo Clinic fan.
