It has evolved into a powerful tool that can be used for career development, continued professional development and global scientific engagement. Medical professionals, have employed social media platforms to search for job opportunities, advertise meetings, participate in case discussions and network with the medical community at large.

The purpose of this review is to discuss the utility of social media, its drawbacks and best practices for the clinicians.

Keywords: Social media, evidence based medicine, safety, confidentiality, medical professionals, clinicians.
