They say that every cloud has a silver lining and the creation of this brilliant FACEBOOK group is one of those positive highlights. This website is testament to what can be achieved by effective collaboration and learning from each other. We have talked about Sharing good practice for years and many of us have practiced this - This Facebook site is full of amazing ideas from local teachers just like us. Join up as soon as you can- Over 4,000 Northern Ireland teachers joined in one week!
Facebook can be used as a fantastic tool for updating friends and family with how you’re getting on in life, that is when you’re not being distracted by another cute cat video! It’s easy to end up adding a lot of personal information to your Facebook profile, most of which you may not want to be accessible by anybody who isn’t your immediate friend or family member. This is especially important to anyone working in education, as you probably don’t want your latest holiday photos to be stumbled upon by your students!
Even if you’re careful about what you post online, you may not be aware that some older posts that you’ve been tagged in could possibly still be accessed by strangers. There’s a privacy setting on Facebook called ‘Friends of Friends’ that a lot of people are unknowingly using, which means that all of your photos can be accessed by anyone who is friends with one of your Facebook friends - that means that if you’re friends on Facebook with your son or daughter, all of their friends might still be able to access your profile!
Read on to find out what your profile looks like to strangers at the moment, how you can ensure the what you post in the future is kept private, as well as how to make sure any of your previous posts are strictly only viewable by your specific friends!
