Now to the point of this entry – Twitter – the social media site that allows users to publicly air their innermost thoughts, tweet at other so-called tweeps, and trend any topic they see fit – has long been used by marketing-savvy companies to advertise special deals and create buzz around new releases.
This is going to be part of an ongoing series of articles because of “stuff” leaking outta the governing body in Ontario, because I’m curious to understand why during the worst economic downturn in dental history, the associations didn’t step up to the plate and do an Ashton Kutcher, Kim Kardashian and Sarah Palin and get into the blogosphere, Tweetosphere and on Facebook and promote the heck out of even routine dental maintenance appointments.
http://www.oda.on.ca/ – at least their on Facebook, but I wonder if the members know
http://www.acdq.qc.ca/ – better but obscure
Who did I leave out…no matter
Let’s check Dental Companies

If the industry and the associations don’t lead the way for the dentists, why would they embrace connectivity.
http://rcdso.org/ – ONE LAST QUESTION – why is the licensing body in Ontario providing CONTINUING EDUCATION – isn’t that outside their mandate, conflict of interest, whatever, don’t know, not a politician, I like open doors and windows.
And one last question – We live in a democracy in Canada – sort of – Harper – Democracy, I realize it’s a bit potatoe, potahtoe; so how come the WEBMASTER at the Canadian Academy of Endudes and the Ontario Society of Endudes is the only one allowed to post to the membership – no return commentary allowed….good god, anyone with a pulse can comment literally anywhere on the INTERNET – do I smell back room dealing, Boss Tweed, Shannon Tweed????
