Step By Step Guide How To Use Facebook To Stay Or Get Healthy

Author: Administrator
It is amazing to watch the popularity of "social media" such as facebook and twitter grow and grow! Did you know that in the last 3 years the active users of facebook has grown from 12 million to 500 million! You are hard pressed any more to find someone who does not have a facebook account to stay connected to their family, reconnect with old friends or classmates. This growth of facebook has opened up a whole new way to help doctors and educators teach and inform the world. In order to stay connected to my patients I have set up a facebook account for my practice which I share up to date research and tips on staying healthy. To visit my page simply go to I also want to give you some tips on how to use facebook to stay healthy.

1. The first step is to figure out just what you need help with in your health. Do you need diet advise? Maybe you need some fitness tips to help you stay motivated in your workout. Maybe you are so absolutely confused about health and just need some basic tips to point you in the right direction. Find out where you are at in your journey of health. This is an essential step in your ability to use facebook as a healthy resource. Another piece of advise is not to try to "fix" everything all at once. It can become very overwhelming to try to change your diet, start exercising and take vitamins all at once. The same principle applies to facebook. If you become a fan of too many pages (which I will explain later) it will just overwhelm you. Find one area and start with that.

2. Step number two is to take your topic you found in step one and find find facebook pages to become a fan of that will share tips, and ideas with you to better your health. The way that you do this is to go to Google. In the Google search bar type " facebook+health" or " facebook+fitness". This will bring up a list of facebook pages on the topic you have chosen. If diet is the topic you have chosen substitute the word "diet" for the word "health" or "fitness". Once you have chosen a few of the sites that jump out at you, click the link to enter that "fan page". Once you are on the fan page, simply click the "become a fan" button. You should now be a fan of that perticular page and will start to receive their health posts to your facebook "wall". You can also simply go onto facebook and in their search bar type your topic of interest which will bring up a list of relevant pages. A couple of my favorites are,!/joseph.mercola, and!/pages/The-First-Choice-Life-Show/281310023094

3. Next, once you have become a fan of a group of pages you need to make sure that they are going to be useful and applicable for you and your health. For the first few days I recommend you read as many of the update posts as possible. This will allow you to see if the particular pages you selected are applicable and something you can use. If any of the posts are not, simply go to that page and unfriend them. At this point you should have a clear idea which fan page's are going to give you greatest bang for your time.

Your computer is packed with useful tips and advise from the smartest people on earth, facebook has allowed them to all gather in one place. It would be a shame to not get the most out of our facebook time, and maybe even make ourselves healthier!
