    13. 13. Part 2: Using Social Media Tools Facebook Groups and Pages: more appropriate/transparent way for teachers to interact with students on Facebook without having to friend them. Effective use of Facebook in education using Groups is by setting up group for specific class to encourage discussion of the material covered in class. “American Literature with Ms. Brown.” Students can do Facebook search for Group & ask to join. Ms. Brown accepts requests and posts assignments, videos, photos, links to websites and other information for students to access.
    14. 14. 1. Fan pages are visible to unregistered people.2. Pages generally better for long-term relationships with fans & readers.3. Groups generally better for hosting a shorter-term active discussion and attracting quickattention.4. Fan pages are visible to anyone logged in to Facebook, whether a fan or not.5. Groups offer more control over who gets to participate. Group admins can restrict access to agroup, so new members have to be approved.6. Groups: good for organizing on a personal level and for small-scale interaction. Pages: better forbrands, businesses, bands, movies, or celebrities who want to interact with fans/customers/constituents.
