The use of Facebook in health education: perceptions of adolescent students. Rev Bras Enferm. 2018 Mar-Apr;71(2):265-271 Authors: Aragão JMN, Gubert FDA, Torres RAM, Silva ASRD, Vieira NFC Abstract OBJECTIVE: understand the perceptions of adolescent students regarding the use of Facebook social media in sexual and reproductive health learning in the Family Health Strategy. METHOD: a qualitative, descriptive study developed with 96 adolescents from a public school and a private school in Fortaleza-CE who concluded an educational intervention using Facebook. The information was collected in the online environment itself, as well as in a questionnaire applied in person. For the collection and analysis of this information, netnography was used. RESULTS: Facebook contributed to the sexual and reproductive health education in an interactive, playful and practical way, reducing the embarrassment of some adolescents to converse on the subject, and brought adolescents closer to the health service, by strengthening their bond with Health professionals. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: health professionals should recognize that such virtual spaces on the Internet offer potential for the production of health care, especially among adolescents.
