Abstract: With the development of the internet, the ability to cascade information at scale and pace has transformed knowledge transfer. Social media, both as an ethos and as the individual platforms that facilitate the development of communities of practice, has created new possibilities in medical education, policy and research. This article explores the role of social media in a new digital world through the lens of its applicability, connectivity and scalability.
