How Not to Lose Face on Facebook, for Professors
Young, Jeffrey R.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n22 pA1 Feb 2009
For years college administrators have warned students to watch their step in online social realms, noting that sharing too much could hurt them later on if future employees saw their drunken party pictures or boorish writings. Now that professors and administrators are catching Facebook fever, they should heed their own advice. The author discusses how professors can use Facebook, and suggests that students who got the jump on the social-networking trend have become savvy users, and that they could teach a few workshops to their instructors.
