This guide provides an overview of social media (SoMe) use with the recent updates for the "cytopathologists and the ones interested in". Our aim was to introduce the basic terms and rules, the potential benefits and risks, and some tips and tricks for using SoMe. The two most popular SoMe platforms, Facebook and Twitter, were the focus of this article.
