    Social media has enabled healthcare service users with long-term conditions (LTCs) to access supplementary information relating to health and disease, including NHS information portals, healthcare service user-centric organisations and several other information centric modalities (Øvretveit, 2018). The concern is that despite technological advances, integration between information searching versus knowledge implementation differs between age groups across LTCs (Smith et al, 2019). The information available over the internet is vast, and much of it can be daunting and lead to misinformation. The basic information for patients with LTCs still require attention (Greene et al, 2012)
