Facebook groups and networks
How do you guys suggest managing groups that are created by (ex)pupils? Have you set up a HS network for the pupils to use?
example - big group of around 750 members, uses copyrighted school logo, discussion board has a topic on teachers with bad and insulting things being said. Also created by a Ex-pupil.
The way I would go about it would be create a account (using webmaster or something as its name), contact group creator and ask for the removal of said topic, and that he administors the boards more closely (suggesting he should make you a admin). If he refusses put in a copyright/invasion of privacy complaint.
See if they are reasonable?
In all reality the person or people who are running the board are likely to be reasonable? I agree you should go for a two pronged approach and firstly see if they are willing to ensure the site is well managed and fair. If they are unwilling to do this then you would have to put up with it unless the comments are abusive. If this is the case refer to previous cases and the possible consequeses including prosecution
There is evidence that Facebook does lock accounts in this way
I would start nicely and work up from there as long as what they are saying is abusive. If they just said Mr H was boring then you may have to live with it.
