One of our Health Information Officers picked this up and we thought you all might be interested in it – researchers at Royal Holloway have just published a paper that looks at the quality of health information shared on online communities.

They looked at 25 threads about HIV, diabetes and chicken pox on reddit, mumsnet, and patient. The basic findings are that most information is good quality and extremely poor information is rare.
