Social media like Facebook and Twitter have become a leading source of medical information on the web. There are dozens of posts daily on Twitter that purport to offer information on snoring and sleep apnea. When many of these links are investigated, they turn out to be nothing more than link farms - a single sentence about the tweet heading followed by multiple Google (or other) advertisements. The source of these posts, for the most part, remains undisclosed. Many advertisements lead to sources of unreliable or ineffective solutions for snoring and sleep apnea which are potentially serious medical conditions.
"Snoring Isn't Sexy continues to be concerned about the validity of snoring and sleep apnea information available on the web for patients. With the growth of social media," says Snoring Isn't Sexy Founder and President Dr. Laurence Barsh "it's difficult for those seeking medical information on both Facebook and Twitter to know which pages and which Tweets offer reliable and authentic medical information. Snoring Isn't Sexy is proud to be certified by the Health on the Net Foundation as being a source of 'useful and reliable online medical and health information.' We are proud to post the HON logo at our web site."
