How many time do we hear these things? How many times do we share this message in the classroom to try and raise awareness among students to be careful online.
But, how often do we know some concrete examples? How can we talk intelligently about this?
An answer and a possible useful solution is Facecrooks. Facecrooks is a resource just chocked full of information to keep you safe online. Regularly, the site issues warnings and advice about some of the things that are being propagated online at Facebook. It’s a deep analysis of what’s spreading and how users of Facebook keep it going, putting themselves or their friends in danger.
A recent article digs into the common message about sick children.
Facecrook keeps their advice online at their website, through Twitter (@Facecrooks), on Facebook itself, and on Google +. There’s also an option to have current stories emailed to you so that you can stay in touch.
If you’re ready to talk seriously about keeping students (and yourself and family), you owe it to yourself to check out the resources. By doing so, we can all become more educated users of this online resource.

Over 3 years later, “deleted” Facebook photos are still online
Facebook is still working on deleting photos from its servers in a timely manner nearly three years after Ars first brought attention to the topic. The company admitted on Friday that its older systems for storing uploaded content “did not always delete images from content delivery networks in a reasonable period of time even though they were immediately removed from the site,” but said it’s currently finishing up a newer system that makes the process much quicker. In the meantime, photos that users thought they “deleted” from the social network months or even years ago remain accessible via direct link.
