ABSTRACT
The authors comments on the breach of confidentiality caused by photographs of partying and drinking nurses posted on social networking sites such as Facebook, which threaten the credibility of nurses and the nursing profession. They cite the existence of Facebook group discussions involving nurses, which contain postings about the activities of nurses outside of their work. The authors advise nurses to be aware of the implications of communicating in a virtual realm and set some personal guidelines before professional repercussions occur.
