Appropriate Social Media Behaviour

Set your privacy settings for any social networking site.
Ensure any technological equipment, (including your mobile phone) is password/ PIN protected.
Consider having professional online accounts/ identities if you wish to have online contact with service users, their families and other professionals.
Make sure that all publicly available information about you is accurate and appropriate.
Remember online conversations may be referred to as ‘chat’ but they are written documents and should always be treated as such.
Make sure that you know the consequences of misuse of digital equipment.
If you are unsure who can view online material, assume it is public. Remember - once information is online you have relinquished control.
Switch off Bluetooth.
When you receive any new equipment (personal or private) make sure that you know what features it has as standard and take appropriate action to disable/ protect.
