Q. Do you see the trends in use of social media and other digital methods changing over the next 5 years and if so, how?

"The specific social media channels will change, but the inevitable trend is towards more succinct, visual content that allows commentary, which is where social media fits in. As more customers of the pharmaceutical industry see social media as their preferred channel, industry marketing and communications activities will have to recognise this and place greater emphasis on these channels."

Q. Are there any regulatory hurdles that must be considered when using social media in the pharmaceutical industry?

"As per above there are two key regulatory ‘hurdles’ – having in place appropriate adverse event reporting mechanisms and ensuring that there is no promotion of prescription products / their data on public social media channels."

Q. What is the biggest challenge to pharmaceutical companies when using social media?
