Abstract

Social media has exploded in popularity in recent years. It is a powerful new tool for networking, collaborating, and for the communication and evolution of ideas. It has been increasingly used for business purposes and is now being embraced by physicians including pathologists. Pathology professional organizations and even peer-reviewed pathology journals are now beginning to use social media, as well. There are multiple social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and others. Each platform has different audiences and different ways to share content and interact with other users. This paper discusses the different social media platforms and how they are being used in pathology currently.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 76. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 21 September 2018.
All research outputs
#182,471
of 12,247,359 outputs
Outputs from Advances in Anatomic Pathology
#2
of 373 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#9,312
of 266,268 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in Anatomic Pathology
#1
of 20 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,247,359 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 373 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 266,268 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 20 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
