When I was in high school (ages ago!) the only time I had to worry about administrators possibly reading about my extra-curricular escapades was at the end of the year when we passed out our yearbooks to be signed by our super cool history or English teachers. Now all that has changed with teachers friending students on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace. And don’t think college admission officers aren’t looking up student profiles online–cause they so want to know what’s between the lines of your college applications–which is why I always recommend that you keep your profiles private, unless, of course, you don’t care who knows what you did the night before last.

But all this begs the question of whether or not it’s cool or creepy to be friends with teachers or professors or admission officers on social networking sites? Is there a line being crossed? All this came to mind after reading this article on CNN. I’m not sure what the answer is, and I would love to hear your thoughts on the issue…as long as we can still be friends.
