Do you think that teachers should keep their facebook pages private?

I read a post which stated:

I was bored and searched my daughter's teacher on facebook. She was on there and her profile wasn't private so I was looking at it. All of her pictures were of her at different parties/bars and in every one she had a beer in her hand and she was bumping and grinding with a different guy in every pic. I don't care what she does in her free time but what if other moms look at it and get pissed? Those pictures could come back and bite her in the ass lol. What do you think?

  • Yeah, and what if her students see it? Private would be a good setting.

  • I think to benefit themselves they should keep them private, but I also think a lot of people should keep them private, and only viewable to friends and family.

  • I can see what you are saying. In my opinion, shouldn't most things on FB be kept for friends to see and not for just anyone to see?

  • I don't give a crap what she does off the clock either but she should be smart enough to make the profile private. Children do look up to their teacher and if the child sees it, they might lose respect for their teacher or think partying is ok.

  • YES

    People are fired everyday for what they post on the internet.

  • Yes, they definatley need to keep them private from the public. It's one thing to allow your friends to see but for anyone to be able to find you and see it is another story.

  • As someone who plans on going into teaching, once I become a student teacher everything becomes private. I even know some people who make separate pages, a completely private one, and one with certain public things their students/parents/co-workers can see. When you work with children or have a job where your integrity and private life can come under scrutiny you have a certain level of posterity to maintain. Simply put- your students or their parents shouldn't know that your facebook status on friday after school is

  • While it doesn't bother me what they do, I think it would just be in their best interest to cause there are people out there that do.

  • The teacher is immature and she is taking a big chance by posting those pictures on Facebook. WHat is it wth Facebook anyway? People seem to go nuts and become EXHIBITIONISTS! Really! A teacher or ANYONE who parties and bumps and grinds and posts those pictures is nuts! Tacky, no taste. Ugh.
