White House Using Social Media to Thwart Healthcare Myths

President Obama and his team of social media gurus have set up a social media campaign to dispell myths about healthcare reform within the United States. The Los Angeles Times reports that, the administration has launched a Web page called Health Insurance Reform: Reality Check that disputes popular criticisms of the new policies. The media-rich, well-designed site contains video testimony from advisers and experts.

The White House blasted links to the package out to more than 300,000 fans on Facebook and more than 900,000 on Twitter today.

We've seen how social media was intergal in President Obama's campaign, will it have the same successful effect with healthcare? We'd like to hear your thoughts via Twitter or on LinkedIn.
