Social Media

Social media is the fastest growing communication method of the 21st century, so with this in mind, the British Dietetic Association (BDA), your professional body and Trade Union, has developed this professional member guidance to ensure the profession is fully, effectively engaged.

The social media professional guidance document is designed to provide guidance to BDA members who are either currently, or would like to be, engaged in social media in a professional capacity.

It includes:

  • an explanation of types of social media platforms.
  • a collection of practical tips and hints on professional approaches with social media for members of the BDA
  • hypothetical examples relevant to the diverse areas in which dietitians and nutritionists work and communicate about food, nutrition and health.
