    Despite several papers cautioning midwives about their personal and professional use of social networking sites (Bacon and Lee, 2010; Stewart, 2010; Wray, 2010), supervisors of midwives are frequently encountering issues which stem from such sites and incur breaches of the Code (Nursing and Midwifery Council, 2008). Midwives need to be familiar with the Code and equally knowledgeable about the ways in which social networking sites can render them susceptible to breaches of it.
