Should a school have a Facebook page, the risks and benefits??
I have just been asked to look into the possibility of our school setting up a Facebook page? I am just pondering the risks and benefits to our school setting up a Facebook page? It would be good to get the views of this community with regards to such?
Should a school set up and administrate their own Facebook page for publicity and better communication with the local community, parents, pupil past and present?
If your school has experience with this platform, what are the advantages and disadvantages, have you had any parent complain about the school having one. What safeguards have you in place on Facebook to limit any negative interaction? Or any bad experience with it in general.
What type of content would you publish on it, do you use official school photos, videos? Are you legally allowed to do this? I donít wish to know the name of any school that has went down this route. I am fact finding with regards what the school experience has been? Positive Negative or otherwise, did it have an impact? How many subscribers on average has your school achieved? Etc
I personally would embrace this but I am a little paranoid about administrating one for the school especially when I canít get access to the platform in the first instance, as it is blocked.
