Social Media for Staff

Today’s Tip:

Over the past month, Debbie and I have been coming out to schools with a big bag of snacks to have a run-down of good social media practices as a public employee, and in your personal lives.  In case you missed these and would like more information, please feel free to contact Debbie or me anytime.

Here is a copy of the Social Media Guidelines (which you can grab from the Social Media page on the web site–among other things) and here is a copy of an updated packet with considerations if you’re using Facebook.

Special kudos to Margi Wachowiak and Marti Bethke for creating a DAHS Library fan page, and to Jen McGorray and Dave Bailey for setting up the New Reflections fan page.

Today’s Tool:

MyFakeWall is an interesting site I came across last week.  It allows you or students to create a Facebook wall for a famous person, a fictional or historic character, anyone you like.  How might that character interact with peers? Who might those “friends” be?  In what writing style might that character post status updates?  What links or photos might that character share?  There are examples ranging from John Lennon (pre-Yoko,) to the Greek God Hermes, to FDR.
