In Defense of the Social-Networking Profs

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Professors in cyberspace are receiving some unflattering attention (blogged here), but being a prof on Facebook and other social networking sites does not automatically put one in the Faculty Who Share Too Much Information category. I find Facebook an easy way to keep in touch with alumni, and I’ve discovered some interesting groups Like “Feminist Bloggers Unite!” (here) and the International Association for Feminist Economics (here).

  1. The younger professors get, the more likely their non-school-related-friends are on Facebook and want the professor to be as well because, well, that’s where people are. It’s then a tough balance to strike — knowing that your students use Facebook but also having your own independent social network you want to be a part of.
