    I’m actually friends with a couple of my professors on facebook. However I think that they change their privacy settings when it comes to their students because I never see any updates from them. In addition to that I also limit any instructor’s access to my profile, etc. Most of them do not want an extremely personal relationship with their students unless they are a mentor or that student has already graduated.

    That’s a good question. In general, I would say no. However, if the professor or teacher has created a page for a class or subject, which is only open to students (i.e., a private FB conversation) then I say yes. The lines are a little different for adult students, but as a rule it’s best to stay on the side of caution.

    Can students and teachers be #Facebook friends? Are you friends with any of your educational peeps? http://ow.ly/5EBDM #IAM #highered
