I posed a question very similar to your topic to the members of my social networking site at USPHS World. I had read an article on MSNBCon how the Army was using Facebook and Twitter to target recruits and the success they were having with this program. After reading this article, I started thinking that perhaps the US Public Health Commissioned Corps should have an official Facebook page too. Although the PHS Corps does not have a recruiting problem, I believe the PHS Corps could benefit greatly by having an official page on Facebook. At a minimum, we get some good marketing at practically no costs. In addition, by establishing a presence on Facebook we may attract potential candidates into the Corps who may never have known about who we are and what we do.
Right now, the PHS has an official page on YouTube. This is a start. I am hoping with the creation of my website that I may be able to persuade the senior leadership of the Commissioned Corps that we should have official pages on other social networking sites too. More to follow on this.
