I've gained a lot from looking through the thread on university social media policies, but there's an area I don't see covered that I'm wondering about. At my institution, we've had a few episodes of inappropriate interaction between faculty & students on Facebook--mostly with students misunderstanding the boundaries of what's appropriate, but a couple times with faculty making the same mistake. Now some of our administrators are insisting that we have a "Facebook policy" that will strictly define the ways in which faculty can interact with students using social media. I'm not sure what will come of this--and I'm aware that there are significant First Amendment implications. It hasn't become formal yet and frankly, I want to use it as a teaching opportunity rather than a punitive or limiting one, but I need ammunition. I'm wondering if any of you have encountered such a situation and whether you have had such policies imposed on you? If so, I would be very interested in seeing examples of such policies or guidelines.
