Date:6/2/2010

STAMFORD, Conn., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Today In the Face of Pain® launches a series of online instructional videos to help pain management advocates expand their outreach efforts through popular social media forums. The Social Media Guides provide an introduction to social media applications, such as Facebook, and walks users through the process of setting up, using and maintaining these communication vehicles. Topics include "An Overview of Social Media," "Advocacy in Social Media," and "Facebook 101."

Each of the Guides is less than five minutes in length and provides helpful tips on finding and connecting with others who share similar interests about pain management and access to quality healthcare. Pain management advocates can reach a worldwide audience using these diverse, accessible, and free or inexpensive communication tools.

"Social media can be a powerful advocacy tool, but learning about and leveraging the numerous platforms can be challenging," said Pamela Bennett, RN, BSN, executive director of Healthcare Alliance Development at Purdue Pharma L.P.
