The purpose of this study is to explore the usage patterns within a group of OTs on Facebook. Social media is widely used to collaborate, share practical knowledge and resources, and provide social support. There is an absence of research examining how OTs participate in social media and the kinds of information exchanged. Posts were analyzed to determine the types of knowledge shared, themes of communication, and OTPF-3 correspondence. Facebook groups are useful professional practice tools.
