2) No, MySpace and WAYN
Facebook has been getting a whole lot of press in the US media relating to use in colleges and schools... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facebook
1) is it blocked at your school?
2) are you on it?!
2) No, MySpace and WAYN
Yes it's blocked and no, but I do have myspace (eventually I was persuaded to sign up).
I'm on it, love facebook. its like myspace without all the seizure inducing graphics
that's exactly what I love - deleted my Myspace now. It's like networking in a wiki! edit: Actually, maybe networking is the wrong word for a tech forum... it's good to write messages to people and look at photos of them drunk... much better...Originally Posted by Domino
CAn get on it here, but i get the feeling not for long once the LEA filters pick up on it.
It seems to be available here but probably not for too much longer.
blocked here although the kids just use proxy sites to gain access :-P
1) It's not blocked here at present although I suspect it's only a matter of time before IFL decide to add it. I'm not too fussed with its use in our school as it only seems to be our Sixth Formers who use it.
2) I am on Facebook; it's a really friendly interface and I like the way the home page presents updates on all your friends. I'm also on MySpace but I only read that, I don't post to it.
i run a proxy site or 2 so I can always get around it
Its not blocked by the LEA here, but it is via our in house censornet box.
I am not on any of these type of things Myspace, Faceparty etc.
It has been blocked by our LEA - but teachers have access to it (they use a different port number).
I am on it - and have pretended to remember a lot of people from my past as a result.
We have it blocked here and i am on facebook to quite like it compared to myspace and others like that.
In my school we are using a open source my space look a like and get the kids to use that. Atleast we can then monitor and moderate it.
It's always a personal debate... I'm just nosey and love to find out what everyone is up to. It's the people that you really didn't know, say, you met once, drunk at a party who you don't want to offend by not accepting their friend invite...Originally Posted by sqdge
I love facebook anyway. I'm back in contact with a few people that I just lost touch with and hopefully we'll meet up soon with more than ever to talk about...
