We have an interesting article for you to read now, one which reopens the debate on whether teachers and students should be allowed to converse with each other on social networking site Facebook.
If you haven’t heard by now, a few teachers in New York were fired after their activities on Facebook with their fellow students were deemed inappropriate.

Then again, a teacher adding a student to Facebook can lead to all sorts of problems, especially when photos and status updates which are not meant for minors are filtered around.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you have any experience of adding a student and/or teacher to your Facebook account? If so, give us your say – the full article can be read over at Gather.
