May 20, 2011 (San Diego, CA) – Medical web design and internet marketing innovator Medical Web Experts has recently launched the world’s first doctor social bookmarking website, http://www.doctorbookmarks.com. By allowing users to share links to healthcare-related web content in a social environment of users with similar interests, doctors and medically-conscious individuals can explore and discuss fresh and relevant material.
DoctorBookmarks.com allows users to create a user login identity and post links to medically relevant content from around the internet while other users “vote” on the post. The “Published News” screen on the home page allows visitors to easily see the most current posts, and users can also comment, discuss, save the page, or share the content with a friend. Content posted comes from sites all around the internet – news websites, medical blogs, health IT updates, EMR product news and information, information about personal doctors or concierge providers, and more.
The practice of using social websites to spread information across a network of friends and users with similar interests – dubbed “social bookmarking” – has soared in popularity in recent months. Social bookmarking websites like digg, reddit, and StumbleUpon (built exclusively for this purpose) have also multiplied and collected strong user bases. Allowing users to bookmark and share information does more than simply give them a way to share pages with their friends and colleagues; it brings less-mainstream news and blog topics to light by presenting them to other users and often bringing them out in the search engines.
The narrow focus on medical and doctor-related information makes the site perfect for users with a personal or professional interest in medical topics. “By having a dedicated social bookmarking site for physicians, we’re presenting physician-related content that would not normally make it to the headlines in mainstream social bookmarking sites,” says John Deutsch, President and CEO of Medical Web Experts. DoctorBookmarks.com is helping to adapt social bookmarking for users with all kinds of personal and professional interests, and the site continues to grow in popularity.
