I forgot to add in my analysis of the spreadsheet data. Here I have outlined some of the trends I found when comparing answers across the entire survey.
Of the one person who said they had more than one Facebook account, he or she said that Facebook was only for personal reasons. He/she did not want to friend students or parents because he/she didn’t want students or parents to access information about the user.
It appears that most users read their news feeds more often then they post original content.
Of the K-6 teachers as well as the undergraduate teachers, using Facebook with students or parents was split evenly. The same people are more likely to “friend” current parents and past students and parents, but were split about “friending” current students. They all use either pages or groups to connect with students or parents. And these users also access Facebook through multiple devices (computer, laptop, mobile devices). So this tells me unofficially that they are probably more comfortable using social media.
Most of the respondents who don’t use Facebook with students or parents said that their school uses Facebook to connect with students or parents. I didn’t ask this same question to those who use Facebook with students. I’m going to assume that the results would be the same as far as school participation.
