The ethics article in the Summer 2011 issue of THE NEW SOCIAL WORKER addresses ethical issues related to social networking. Is it possible to be a "blank slate" therapist in the era of social media? Is it desirable or necessary for social workers to remove themselves from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites? What are the ethical implications of NOT staying up-to-date and current on these technologies, which may be a big part of clients' lives? Is there a happy medium?
