OK, so I finally buckled under the pressure and joined Facebook. As an educator, it’s important to maintain an appropriate distance from students and families, but you can pretty much accept or ignore “Friend” requests . . . and since I NEVER post anything objectionnable, I think it’s really OK.
What I’ve found out is:
- Facebook is so much easier and quicker than blogging, which I hate to admit, but you’re just posting quick “tweets,” and connecting with so many people.
- Speaking of “tweets,” I actually like it better than Twitter, because it’s easier to add web links, pix, and videos (at least for me!)
So if you’re not on Facebook yet (is anyone out there NOT on Facebook?) I’d encourage you to try it. Go to: http://www.facebook.com You can search for me as “Ruth Rose” in case you want to send a friend request. Happy “Facebooking!” Is that accepted as a verb yet?
