We've got a facebook site, Vimeo channel, class blogs and twitter feeds for classes, head and office, the facebook page feedback from parents has been phenomenal and has helped us prove a point to the local community but do agree with elsiegee40 that it has to be rigidly managed and set up to ensure the school's reputation and safeguards should be followed to ensure children are carefully protected. We make it very clear that facebook is not for use by children under 13 and anything on facebook is replicated on twitter and class blogs so they can see it via public channels.

When it's done right it can have an amazing affect on the school and the wider area. :-)
