I agree with what the author says. Many students are using Social Media now, so it is a good deal to teach them the proper way of using it .I foresee things to be different in future, so that all the students know the correct way to post things online and post the correct things. Since it is such an implementation, the students should be more aware of the usage of the Social Media. Therefore, the students will be benefit from it since they have learnt the proper ways to use Social Media, so they will not let others to know their privacy. The families and the teachers will also be benefit since their beloved ones(students and children)is safe. It is not truly fool proof since nowadays have many people who are very good at computers, they will find many ways to hack into your computers. And also, not all students will listen to teacher, they will just don't bother and do things their own ways.

Research: Teachers Say Tech Distractions More Concerning than Privacy, Security -- Campus Technology | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
"With this study we wanted to discover how educators around the world perceive the technology they and their students use on a daily basis," said Jared Stein, vice president of research and education at Instructure, in a prepared statement. "It is enlightening to find that the most pressing concern among educators was distraction, outranking issues like privacy and security. While privacy and security are critical issues, these findings suggest teachers are focused on how, not whether, technology should be used."

Learning about learning: What every teacher needs to know - David Didau: The Learning Spy | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it
When I trained to be teacher I was told little or nothing about how children learn. Because a lot of what we intuitively suppose about the process of learning is often flatly contradicted by cognitive science this was a huge handicap. Since you can’t think about stuff you don’t know, I spent all my time pontificating on the process
