cjrw: I have a policy of only accepting Friend requests from former not current students on Fb and never initiate requests.
ajcann: Beeb was referring to school teachers, but I don't accept many FB friend requests these days as I don't go there.
Which led on to a discussion of whether we (we being either UoL or the School of Biological Sciences) should have a formal Policy (proper noun) about social networking sites.
So do we? Do you have one in your organization? And if you do, is it a help or a hindrance?
Update: Jo reminded me that the UoL internet code (2005) says:
- During busy periods don't “surf” the Internet for recreational purposes.
- During busy periods use email only for work-related activities: leave social emails for a less busy time.
