3Shape recognizes opportunities to use the advance of social media in the dental industry and is now reaching out to its customers, partners and even competitors – our “FOLLOWERS”– with intensified social media activity across the major social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
And we are not alone. Over 900 million people “Like” and comment an average of 3.2 billion times every day. Over the past years, social media has been setting new rules for communication and information sharing.
Around the globe people of all ages, roles and industries are joining social media platforms. The internet has exploded in magnitudes of knowledge and opinion sharing through debates, blogs, LinkedIn groups, videos, and tweets. This sensational phenomenon has also reached the dental industry. YouTube has taken position as the world’s second-largest search engine, and a unique platform for spotlighting technologies such as 3D scanning and CAD/CAM.
A large number of dentists and dental labs are awakenings to the fact that social media is a powerful business opportunity just waiting there for anyone who cares to “like” it. Any partner, patient, or competitor who clicks a “Like” on the lab’s or clinic’s Facebook page is automatically exposed to a stream of information and communications about their services. Interactive media lets labs and clinics meet their potential customers and create a loyal community around their business.
3Shape welcomes this new communication freeway and sharing spirit - and we wish to add our own voice to the throng. 3Shape’s goal is to get “up close” to our customers and partners, tell our stories through a fresh approach, help our customers with information, and get valuable feedback from the field. We believe that social media provides powerful opportunities for promoting digital dentistry and catalyzing its growth in a fresh and breezy manner. You can be a part of this by meeting us on the following channels:
