"Dear Facebook, We Need to Talk"  

Was the title of a blog post I wrote back in 2011 when I was having a bumpy relationship with FB and finally decided to dump him....err I mean it! (you can Google it or maybe the link will work below - let's try!)

But Twitter....ahh Twitter has become my number one Social Media outlet & source for rich professional development....but my friends? They have to email, call, or text me cause yeah...I don't DO Facebook. And I'm better off for it!  

Great post Griffyn! Love that you rock the Y like I do! ;-)

Sue Osborne's curator insight, August 25, 4:06 PM

I am increasingly of the opinion that, whilst it is great to keep up with people I know and love on Facebook, I am losing something too. My very best friend is NOT on Facebook and I have to make the effort to touch base with her via email, SMS and actual phone calls. It IS much more personal that way.  I tend not to look at Facebook as often through the day as I used to (used to always be open in the background). Some days I don't even look at it at all. However, Twitter IS open all the time - keeping me up to date with conferences, media announcements and the latest articles and developments in my profession. I LOVE it. I can actually see a day coming where I leave Faccebook behind and concentrate communicating on a more personal level with friends and use Twitter even more as an information professional.

When sexting happens at the students home but the impact is felt at school - is that behavior actionable?  I'm still thinking about issues like this.

Sue Osborne's comment, June 17, 5:46 PM
My feeling is, if the relationship started at school and the students are in school together, the school (as well as students and parents) has a responsiblity to that student. Particularly if the images or scandal is being further distributed via the "schoolyard network" of peers. Once the students start sharing stuff with other students I think it becomes school and parent/home terrirtory. Because the kids are all so connected via social media the lines get blurred very quickly, which is why everyone needs to be aware and vigilant. Kids just don't seem to understand that split second decision to share someting inappropriate can ruin lives and reputations almost instantly.

We should share this with adults. I know teachers (I use the word loosely) who scream at their audience, attack dissenting voices, and do not check spelling and grammar because it is more important to be out there than be a good role model. The interesting thing is the teaches who do this do it face-to-face and digitally.

I agree to an extent, Sue. At some point, though, adults are also failing to pass along ideas of what is and isn't appropriate. Or in some situations they are sadly modeling the bad behavior themselves.
