Complaint about Social Networking – Health 2.0

April 15, 2008

In response to the NY Times Magazine article on Health 2.0, one person with MS wrote in that, “More than anything, I found it to be a hypochondriac’s virtual theme park.” This person also did not appreciate the label “patient”. While many people benefit from Health 2.0 style social networking, another writer questioned whether an anonymous user could create an account and then post an amazing recovery based on a specific drug. These are valid concerns which need to be addressed within Health 2.0 to maintain trust with these sites and avoid abuse.
