By Jamie Kalicharan and Rose Calles In today’s society, almost everyone is on a social network. Then there are those that keep information private like a high school English teacher. The AJC got hold of an e-mail sent anonymously (via an e-mail address that does not exist) to the district, supposedly from a parent complaining that one of Payne’s students read the status and then proceeded to refer to her friends as “b****.” Payne keeps her Facebook locked up, it’s private. Although, she did have other teachers on her friend list. These social networks could be harmful to the teacher and also the students.

Below, we offer a refresher course for those eager to learn more about the basics of Facebook. Even if you’re a pro, it’s fun to look at the platform through a beginner’s eyes. 1.

Web 2.0 Suicide Machine - Meet your Real Neighbours again! - Sign out forever! Making social media work professionally | Money PC Hanif Sanghar was so pleased to have been involved in an operation to catch two vicious attackers that he tweeted he had "arrested the offenders", even though the suspects had yet to stand trial.

BBC punches holes in Facebook with virtual bagel stunt The BBC has conducted a test to show that Facebook ‘likes’ generated from sponsored ad placements within the social network may be of little value unless tightly targeted. The experiment, in which technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones bought ads for a fictional ‘virtual bagel’ company, found that many likes received from the global campaign appeared to be from fake accounts or users from Egypt that liked thousands of pages. With so much of the value of the social networking giant based on its potential ad revenue, and questions over the efficacy of advertising in its tightly controlled ecosystem circling, the exercise speculated that global activity in particular, whether it be number of ‘likes’ or clicks on ads, may be of little or no value. The page for the virtual bagel company was set up with very little information apart from a brief, vague description so that it would be of little interest to Facebook users.

Facebook loses 6M U.S. users in May - Web 2.0 and Web Apps, internet, Facebook, e-commerce - CIO News June 13, 2011 02:21 PM ET Computerworld - Facebook may continue to gain users, but the world's biggest social network isn't gaining them as quickly as it has been and is actually losing users in the U.S. Facebook gained 11.8 million more users last month alone, according to a study by Inside Facebook. While that's a lot of new users, it's less than the 13.9 million new users who joined the site in April, or the 20 million gain during some months in the past year. And while Inside Facebook reports that the social network is approaching 700 million users worldwide, the number of U.S. users has dropped. The study noted that Facebook had 155.2 million U.S. users at the beginning of May but 149.4 million at the end of the month. Other countries showed losses as well; Canada dropped by 1.52 million and the U.K. dropped by more than 100,000, but the U.S. showed the biggest loss for Facebook last month. "I don't think this is necessarily troubling for Facebook at this time," said Olds.
