Australian Hospital Social Networks 2011

Last year I compared Australian and US hospital social networks based on data collected by Mike Cadogan – Life in the Fast Lane, and Ed Bennet – Found in Cache.  This is the state of play just over a year on.

US vs Australian Hospital social networks Aug 2011


In just under a year, Australian Hospital YouTube accounts have risen from 1% to 8%, Facebook remains the same at 9%, Twitter has risen from 0 to 1%, and the number of hospital blogs has stayed the same at 1% (we don’t have LinkedIn and Foursquare data). Australian hospitals still have a long way to go.  Especially with the recent news that one Aussie blog, the and associated social media sites were closed.
