How do social network site users deal with health information?

Based on the survey report called The Social Life of Health Information 2011, it is said that social network site users deal with health information basicly in three ways.

23% of social network site users have followed their friends’ personal health experiences;

17% of social network site users have used social networking sites to remember or memorialize other people who suffered from a certain health condition;

15% of social network site users have gotten any health information on the sites.

If an editor assigns me to report on this summary, I will focus on the aspect of how social network site users collect health information online.

I will interview experts who studying in health and who studying in the development of social media. Then I will also interview users of social network sites.

I will embed charts in my news story  to show those data visually, so that readers can understand the survey  in a relatively easy way. Besides the chart, I will also attached the interview video and audio to my story, therefore it seems more credible and readers can find out what those users say.
