Future doctors overshare on Facebook

University of Florida researchers find that medical students using social networking sites are sharing personal information beyond what most physicians would ever share with patients.

Researchers reviewed Facebook sites of 362 UF medical students and residents and found that students posted lifestyle information including sexual orientation, relationship status and political opinions or positions.

The study was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
