Teachers warned about use of Twitter and Facebook

Just brings to mind the teacher that ran away with a 15 year old pupil. Of course there are various methods of communication that could have been employed but I am betting that there was definite commnication on Facebook. It can start innocently and if one is not vigilant, can spiral into something more sinister. I am not saying Facebook shouldn't be used, but caution should be employed. You never know who is watching!

I am fully agree with your post. Using social communities in class can make a teachers career risky. Without late, it should be stopped.
