Social networks provide significant opportunities to researchers, students and professors for spreading medical information and for health education. This article investigates to what extent and how effectively social networks are used today, specifically their implications in educations of students and health professionals in Bosnia and Herzegovina. A survey was conducted among 200 students of a medicine faculty and 210 health professionals. While students are frequent users of general social networks, health care workers have not shown great interest in it.
