Since Facebook is becoming more and more popular, huge concern on privacy also raises. Now there are more than 600 million people on Facebook. I am on Facebook. Most probably you are on Facebook too. In some countries some schools are taking this “being friend with the students on facebook” thing seriously. I heard many school management strongly prohibit their teachers to add theirs students friend on Facebook.
According to the statistics 28% of teachers described being sent unwelcome messages.
Here are some interesting stats about this issue:
* Teacher Ashley Payne lost her job after posting pictures with alcohol.
* The Georgia High School teacher resigned after being threatened with suspension due to her public vacation pictures of her with alcohol.
* 3 U.S teachers in the past 6 months were fired for having inappropriate dialogue with students on Facebook.
Lets have a look at this infographic on this issue together and if you are a teacher maybe you should reconsider adding your students as friend.
