Mayo Clinic’s ‘Facebook’ grows to 7,000 users, new features coming


Mayo Clinic’s 13-week-old version of Facebook has cracked 7,100 users, and the healthcare-social-media-heavy hospital system is promising new features next month. More than 1,000 people joined the free online health community when it launched on July 5. Lee Aase, director for Mayo’s Center for Social Media, said Mayo hoped to gather 5,000 users by year’s end. “We are continually revising our goal. I think we’d like to have 10,000 by the end of the year,” Aase said. “I think we’re well on pace to surpass that.”
