Wondering about how teachers use Facebook? What to look out for? What do students need to know? How about privacy settings?

"Here's what you need to know: You don't need to "friend" students or accept friend requests from them to interact with them on Facebook. Instead, we encourage you as an educator to set a Facebook Page and/or a Facebook Group for these interactions, which we will explain below. You may find that you have the need for multiple Pages and/or Groups. This approach is a good way to respect student privacy—and to have students respect your privacy."
