Social Media Policies: Friending on Facebook

Probably discussed here before, but we are just starting to draft some social media policies.Does anyone have any thoughts about faculty/staff "friending" students on Facebook? My gut tells me this may not be the best idea. But perhaps I am being a little too cautious. Have any institutions specifically prohibited it?Thanks all. See More

Solution for deluge of daily emails?

So way back in "the day" (eight or so years ago), our employee/student email inboxes were routinely deluged with 40+ individual email messages per day due to the "campus-wide" email lists being open for anyone here to send messages to.Enough people eventually decried the situation, so we came up with an email/website "publication" that was basically akin to a "daily digest email" of what were originally individual messages.This was highly successful and took a large part of the burden off of…See More
