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).
