With so many schools now taking the leap and establishing a presence on social media, teachers may feel the gap closing between their personal and professional lives. In this post, I discuss my approach to social media as an educator and why I prefer to maintain separate personal and professional social media accounts.
In most cases people do not understand how deep you have to dive into Facebook's settings to ensure your personal information stays personal. It can be very difficult to control third party apps and other people tagging you in posts. If you are like me and have been on Facebook for over 10 years, some history literally has to have settings change individually. Similar scenarios can also occur on Twitter or Instagram accounts (that are not set to private).
