Many of us now use social networking and file sharing sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

They’re great for staying in touch and creating communities and for most people, joining in is trouble free and fun. But it can be easy to blur the lines between your personal voice and your professional life as a registered social service worker.

The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) guidance includes information on:

  • exactly what is "social media"?
  • to friend or not to friend?
  • if you should comment
  • is private really that private?
