Healthcare professionals participating in social media practice should be aware of the dangers relating to disseminating information on social media. With internet being accessible almost everywhere, it is easy for users to get access to credible information as well as misinformation.

Therefore, it is pivotal for health professionals to be aware of the social media guidelines to ensure the correct procedures are followed while engaging on social platforms.
