To prove a point, one of my Boston real estate broker friends wanted to demonstrate to me that Social Media sites usefulness are overblown, so he posted the above post on his Facebook. It wasn’t long before there were 50 responses with advice. None of it from people who have ever performed an appendectomy but a few had their appendix removed.
People ask for all sorts of advice on social media and there are plenty of people who like to give advice even though they are not familiar with the subject matter.
Anyway, to continue with the story I learned that scalpels, scrubs, and hospital gowns can all be ordered online and that there are videos that show appendectomies being performed. A person could probably make a DIY appendix removal kit. What could possibly go wrong with a home appendectomy?
Maybe its my age, but I’m not into Facebook. But I do have some friends who think they are the source of all knowledge and information.
For what its worth, if you’re seeking medical, financial and yes even downtown Boston real estate advice it may be best to consult an expert outside of social media.
Enjoy the first weekend of Fall with the Boston Fall-like weather.
