#NoBraDay: When Healthcare Social Media Goes Terribly Wrong

Posted by @DanHinmon, Oct 14, 2015

How did you react to #NoBraDay – a social media hashtag meant to promote breast cancer awareness?

I was too afraid to explore the hashtag when I saw it trend on Facebook.


Agree, Dan. This took me by surprise when it was mentioned at #GenomicsChat yesterday. Think everyone just ignored.

Didn’t partake. One of our staff photographers (whose wife had a mastectomy due to breast cancer) was incredibly insulted by it and posted as much on his personal FB page fairly early and very vocally. His points were quite convincing, so our system never acknowledged it. Good thing I went with my gut on that one.
