More than 80% of U.S. adults use social media accounts monthly and 90% of U.S. college students use a Facebook account.

Dental educators seem interested in using social media for educational purposes, but do not always know how to incorporate social media into their courses. Combined with traditional instruction, social media can increase student interaction in class through group discussions, document sharing, question and answers during class, and office hours.
