In this post I will attempt to describe social work ethical delima as a result of technology advancement. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) has established the Code of Ethics. Social media interactions with clients should be avoided as it can easily facilitate crossing the line between personal and professional. However, we do have to consider the use of social media at the macro-level. Use of social media is acceptable at the macro-level for certain uses such as advocacy (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2018). Those who we reach out to at the macro- level using social media are a client-system (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2018). We have to be careful how we reach out to them if we choose to use social media to not harm, and if we are working on behalf of our school or an agency, we have to be careful of what and how we advocate. When we leave our school environment or agency office, we need to be mindful that social work standards and ethics remain with us when using social media for advocacy or otherwise Social Workers should present themselves in an ethical manner and respect their client privacy.
