Teachers (or wanna be teachers) on Facebook have made the news recently for inappropriate content. It is unfair that teachers are treated differently than almost all other professionals. The perfect example is a person who is 21 in a picture drinking, yet she did not receive her teacher certification. I would not consider this something worthy of public uproar.
The teacher is at fault for not having better security settings on Facebook. As Facebook has been offered to the public in general (instead of just college students), they have modified their security settings. At this point it borders on overwhelming. I found the Complete Guide to Facebook Security which is a great indepth, and step-by-step directions to setting security to fit your needs. It is a great resource for someone who has had a Facebook account for a long time or for someone who is considering setting up an account.
I had already set up lists of friends for ease of viewing, but now I can change what each person sees. Even with the advanced security settings, I am still going refuse to ‘friend’ students.
