About the presentation:
Social networking has a long list of advantages: it enables access to a large group of people from numerous geographical regions; it reaches across several different generations; and allows a cost effective, immediate, and interactive way to engage with others. With the vast number of individuals using social media, it may not be possible to abstain from interactions that pertain to professional practice on these platforms. In this presentation, the ethical issues related to dissemination via social media will be explored for several related professions. Additionally, guidelines and suggestions as to how to avoid or resolve potential violations relating to online social behavior will be provided.
