During my last post, we discussed the idea of students requesting Facebook interaction from their professors. I received a good amount of feedback regarding interacting with students outside of the classroom from readers and even friends and family who read the blog. I love the idea of using Yammer or LinkedIn for in-network social situations. And, I agree that it is a huge organizational challenge (work, school, or otherwise) when direct reports or students request social interaction you are not comfortable with. I’ve even spoken with colleagues who have asked students what their classroom expectations are. And, students are now expecting texts, Facebook messages, and other communications outside of the classroom.
