Social Networking: Cautionary Tales for School Employees (to Prevent Anxiety, Heartburn or Worse)

social networking sites
Social Networking Sites
  • Most social networking sites are NOT blocked for employees (e.g., flickr, facebook, myspace, ning, skype, delicious, edublogs, youtube, pbwiki, etc.)
  • These sites may be used at work, when needed and appropriate, for NISD school-business purposes (not personal business).
  • Social networking websites allow you to express yourself, share ideas and interests, chat with friends, meet new people, and learn new things. Just remember that following a few precautions will go a long way to protect your privacy and safety.
  • Even if used only at home, only, there are recommended precautions for school staff.

selected quotes from the articles
Selected Quotes from the Articles
  • “Nowadays, thanks to advances in technology, you don't even need a major publisher to get fired; just post your racy photos, sexually graphic writings, or wild party stories on a personal Web blog. You'll be amazed by how quickly tech-savvy students can disseminate your postings to their friends and your employer.”
  • “It's the general rule that school employees can be disciplined for off-duty conduct if the school district can show that the conduct had an adverse impact on the school or the teacher's ability to teach. And it wouldn't be too difficult to make that showing if the teacher's blog includes sexually explicit or other inappropriate content and is widely viewed by students.”
selected quotes from the articles15
Selected Quotes from the Articles
  • “The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2004 that it was not a violation of the First Amendment for the City of San Diego to fire a police officer for posting a sexually explicit video of himself on the Internet. The unanimous Court said that such speech was ‘detrimental to the mission and functions of the employer.’ ”
  • “Last year, a U.S. District Court ruled that a Connecticut school district's decision to fire a probationary teacher because of his postings to his MySpace page did not violate the teacher's First Amendments rights. The court called the online exchanges between the teacher and his students ‘inappropriate’ and added that ‘such conduct could very well disrupt the learning atmosphere of the school.’ ”
selected quotes from the articles16
Selected Quotes from the Articles
  • “When you're in a professional position, especially one where you're interacting with children and parents, you need to be above reproach.”
  • “[Keep your online profile] entirely PG … no cursing …no photos of having a good time on the weekend — nothing like that.”
  • “For teachers who want to connect with their tech-savvy students, maintain professional boundaries. Never ever interact with a student about a personal issue on a social network.”
selected quotes from the articles17
Selected Quotes from the Articles
  • “Never write about work on the Internet unless your boss knows and sanctions the fact that you are writing about work on the Internet.”
  • “The Internet is not your BFF. Everyone has a ‘My boss sucks’ moment. But the prudent know to express this sentiment away from the keyboard.”
  • “Employees who use a company computer for personal matters on company time—whether playing solitaire or checking on their 401(k)'s—are essentially stealing from their employer. It's a new, 21st-century form of theft."

more recommendations
More Recommendations
  • Set your profile as non-public/restricted access; approve your “friends” or subscribers. Be choosy about who you accept. Identity thieves may create fake profiles in order to glean information from you (social engineering)
  • Turn on “pre-approval” of others’ messages before they are posted on your site
  • Consider not posting your photo. It can be altered and broadcast in ways you may not be happy about.
  • Be careful about the information you reveal (e.g, screen name, your workplace, out-of-town trips, yourself / family / friends / students)
more recommendations20
More Recommendations
  • When you sign up for a social networking site use your personal e-mail address, not your NISD e-mail address, to avoid increased spam; do not use you NISD e-number and password for District security reasons
  • Have a strong password and protect it; change it periodically
  • Use caution when you click links that you receive in messages – may be malware, porn, etc.
  • Frequently update your home computer’s anti-virus and security software
  • Educate your children and students about privacy settings, safety tips, cyberbullying, digital citizenship, etc. ( )
