The Health Communication Unit, in partnership with Health Nexus, developed a workshop to explore social media and discuss information and ideas about a wide range of social media tools. These tools can help make health promotion work more effective, easier, and possibly even more fun including blogs, wikis, YouTube, Face book, instant messaging, Survey Monkey, online conferencing or Google's wide array of online tools.
