Facebook at School?
Facebook, it’s everywhere. On your home computer, your office computer (yes some employees are on it while at work) and on your cell phone to be checked in a flash or post something instantly. Does it at all make anyone wonder how if your child is supposed to be school between the hours of, let’s say, 8:30am and 2:25pm or 3:10pm, how they can be posting things on Facebook during school hours?
I am the mother of two, my son is 12 and my daughter is 9, and they have cell phones. Not that I feel like I should explain why, but here goes, they walk home from school and I like knowing that they can be in constant contact with me in case something happened. They do not have internet on their phones, but if they did, and they were posting on Facebook during school hours, I would be a bit more than concerned.
I get that kids have free time during lunch hour, but one would think that there must be more important things to do than post on Facebook. I use Facebook, so I am not anti-Facebook, I just feel there is a time and place for the social network.
We tell listeners all of the time to “Like” our Facebook page. Facebooking while at school, and yes, at work (unless your boss doesn’t care) gets a thumbs down in my book!
