Does Privacy Mean We Can't Use Facebook?

An oft cited reason for not using Facebook for teaching is that students don't want their teachers seeing what they are up to. Do you agree? Is there a future for Facebook in teaching?

  1. I think this applies to teachers as well. They are too concerned about their own privacy. Students and teachers can always have 2 or more accounts, a private one and another one for school.

    One thing though is that it isn't only about FB as a tool but about "who" I can connect with on FB and the content I can create/share. A learning environment on FB will replicate other learning tools (e.g. moodle) user and content-wise. What would the added value be then?
