  2. 2. Why is this necessary?Facebook Headlines<br />http://www.reputationdefenderblog.com/2008/01/21/teacher-fired-over-myspace-photo<br />http://www.collegerecruiter.com/weblog/2006/06/texas_teacher_f.php<br />http://www.dailytexanonline.com/1.751193<br />
  3. 3. Societal views of teachers…<br />1872 Rules For Teachers (http://www.rossr.us/MissMaddy/collection/1872.htm) <br />Teachers each day will fill lamps, clean chimneys. <br />Each teacher will bring a bucket of water and a scuttle of coal for the day's session. Make your pens carefully.  You may whittle nibs to the individual taste of the pupils.<br /> Men teachers may take one evening each week for courting purposes, or two evenings a week if they go to church regularly. <br />After ten hours in school, the teachers may spend the remaining time reading the Bible or other good books. <br />Women teachers who marry or engage in unseemly conduct will be dismissed. <br />Every teacher should lay aside from each day's pay a goodly sum of his earnings for his benefit during his declining years so that he will not become a burden on society. <br />Any teacher who smokes, uses liquor in any form, frequents pool or public halls, or gets shaved in a barber shop will give good reason to suspect his worth, intention, integrity and honesty. <br />The teacher who performs his labor faithfully and without fault for five years will be given an increase of twenty-five cents per week in his pay, providing the Board of Education approves <br />
  4. 4. Networks<br />Choose your networks carefully.<br />Else, parents can find you.<br />Employers can find you.<br />Professors can find you.<br />Your students can find you.<br />Parents and potential employers could easily be a part of any network you choose.<br />Don’t forget that friends of friends of friends can eventually find you.<br />Safeguard this possibility!<br />
  5. 5. Who is on Facebook?<br />"There's an ongoing misperception that certain Web activities are the exclusive domain of young people," Crupnick said.<br />“…41% (of baby boomers) have visited a social network site. “<br />“…61% of baby boomers have visited YouTube, TV network Web sites and other sites that stream video”<br />“Younger web users – those between the ages of 13 and 34 – are still more likely to visit social networking sites and visit them more often..” (What are the ages of your students’ parents?)<br />(http://www.contentagenda.com/blog/1680000368/post/670033467.html) <br />
  6. 6. FaceBook Says:<br />More than 100 million active users<br />Facebook is the 4th most-trafficked website in the world (comScore)<br />Facebook is the most-trafficked social media site in the world (comScore)<br />More than half of Facebook users are outside of college<br />The fastest growing demographic is those 25 years old and older<br />(http://www.new.facebook.com/press/info.php?statistics= )<br />
  7. 7. How do others see you?<br />Using the newest features to see how others see you.<br />
