    Abstract

    With the rapid development of mobile networks, people are no longer limited to seeking information offline. The Internet provides a good choice for them. As the previous research work shows, more and more people get used to using the Internet to search for health information. Online health information has attracted much attention ever before. It is well known that health related information generated on the Internet contains a large amount of practical data, which can be utilized for health related study. In this paper, firstly we review related research work on self-disclosure and online behavior related to health information. We analyze and summarize factors relevant to health concerns, and discuss measuring dimensions for health concerns. Finally, we present a basic health concern model and future direction for health concern analysis based on online health information behaviors and social data.
