Veterinary Nursing Journal (Wiley-Blackwell) 29.(2014): 339-341. Academic Search Complete. Web. 21 Oct. 2015.  In this article Stephanie Almond claims the use of social networking sites in our daily lives has increased significantly over recent years and still continues to do so. Extensive literature addresses the negative impact social networking sites are having in academia however, literature concerning the impact of social networking sites on relationships in the working environment is less evident at present.
