Social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter etc have become important means of communication for our members and EACTA has to harness them to its advantage. Social media should be used to deliver the three main themes of EACTA that are education, science and research in cardiac, thoracic and vascular anaesthesia and critical care (CTVA&CC). It should also be used for communication and sharing of knowledge and experience of CTVA&CC. In addition, the platforms should be used to advertise and promote EACTA meetings and activities so raising its profile and attracting new members. However, development of the social media platforms cannot be done in isolation and will require the input of specialty committee. Development of social media platforms must be a priority so as use them to the advantage of all EACTA’s goals.
