Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter have also proved to be effective communication tools for UNA members. With several thousand members, UNA’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/UnitedNurses offers an online platform where UNA can provide up-to-date information on health care and nursing in Alberta, as well as labour relations issues. Plus, anyone can follow UNA on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/UnitedNurses. For video updates, visit UNA’s page on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/UnitedNursesAlberta.
Since social media sites are wide open to public scrutiny, UNA advises members who use social media to comment responsibly and remember they are still responsible for what they say.
