    I think an Edugeek group is necessary... can we ex-pat Edugeekers join as well?!

    It was blocked at our old school, as any 'social networking' site was (when I was there, anyway).

    I prefer Facebook to MySpace as users feel no need to 'pimp' their spaces, one standard format seems to work well, for all. It's clean, simple and easy to manage (in my view).

    No reason why we can't start an 'EduGeek - We know the answers and are not going to tell you them...' group

    How about the 'EduGeek - Have you tried switching it off and then on again?' group?

    Blocked here by LEA

    Im on it though, love it. Never really liked myspace but facebook is great. Not really got in touch with any old friends yet but its a good way to keep in touch with current friends and upload pictures from nights out or just old pictures

    I like to think of it as a grown up myspace - no need for a page full of stupid flash gadgets, videos and backgrounds which render the text unreadable

    Re: Facebook - is it blocked and are you on it?

    Sorry to drag up an old thread but I've recently joined Facebook and I'm in the EduGeek Group. So feel free to add me as a friend. Also new EduGeek members can request to join the EduGeek Group via Tony or russ (I think?).

    Re: Facebook - is it blocked and are you on it?

    I had a long discussion with one of our DHs last week about Facebook & also YouTube - neither of which were blocked.

    My point of view was that it was not worth filtering either. Both have real positive aspects and the negative ones won't actually go away if the sites are filtered in school, as the kids will still use both of them out of school anyway.

    He agreed - so the sites remain unfiltered. As ever, we encourage vigilance in our computer rooms, which so far hasn't rung any alarm bells.

    Blocked here and I am on both MySpace and Facebook but I hate all the apps that I keep getting bombarded with on Facebook.
