Internet is more frequently becoming the source of information concerning health and health problems. People more willingly use the net to visit numerous sites, also social network sites, in order to gain information as well as share their own experience. Hence, wide access to high quality information may substantially affect health related decisions. The awareness of both benefits rising from the usage of internet and its threats or barriers can constitute the foundation for better design of health educational campaigns or network sites. Information accessible via internet should be dedicated to specified groups of addressees defined on the basis of factors such as: age, health problem or sex. This work presents the review of worldwide surveys’ results concerned with the usage of internet for health and health problems purposes.
