7 Reasons why I think Google + its a unique platform for Medical Education

Nota: Esta es una modificación de una entrada con la etiqueta #BlogClub que escribí sobre las razones por las cuales considero que Google + es una excelente plataforma para la Educación Médica . En esta entrada en español comento mis razones para enseñar Medicina utilizando la Social Media como un complemento muy util.

7 Reasons Why I think Google Plus its a unique platform for Medical Education

1.The search box : Integrated with the most powerful search engine you can look  for all kinds of previous posts from people, pages , communities , yours and your circles easily. Great when you are looking for medical stuff.

2.Automatic translations: I am writing this in English by actually you can read any post of G plus in any language because the translator its at the end of the post. Pretty awesome for my Spanish speaking students.
3.Communities: Finding communities with affinities around the world is one of the greatest things in G Plus. It is not about whom you know in your area of interests and more about whom can know through the different communities. Easy to star and administer, public or privates. There is a community (Rheumatology world) for clinical cases discussions as a private community. I administer RotReuma for students from the universities in my city going trough the Rheumatology rotation. I have found vigorous Spanish speaking communities in Social Media and Medicina (Social Media y Salud). More powerful than Facebook groups or chats in twitter  (at least less noisy and intuitive to understand for beginners)
4.HangOuts: Private or public video calls up to ten people for free. (In skype you have to pay). Imagine your class with a colleague from overseas or live discussions integrated to your you tube channel. Imagine meetings with your colleagues from the same city shortening travel distances and letting to be at home to discuss a journal club as an example.
5.Circles organization:You can easily select what you want to read from your different circles. I have my residents, students, rheumatology ,reumatologia , social media and medicine circles among others.
6.Sharing options: You can share a post to any other platform, insert the post, choose the circle and follow the post. 
7: My students love this platform: The most important, more than twitter (difficult to follow sometimes, 140 characters restrictions to present , lack of privacy to discuss because all is public discussion) or Facebook ( For friends, private life) . A short tutorial beginning RotReuma and I have not found barriers to use it (Different from twitter or Facebook).
This is our initial work published as an abstract at the XVIII Panamerican Congress of Rheumatology 

 G PLus for Medical Education

¿Do you think you can achieve this performance with any other platform? Love to hear your insights .
