Teachers and students should not be friends on Facebook. I believe teachers and students being friends on Facebook is a ridiculous idea. It is weird to have one of your current teachers as your friends, just the thought of her/him reading your uncensored posts and looking through my photo album is enough to make me cringe.
Yes. As long as the teacher is not your “current” teacher and your no longer a part of the school that the teacher is teaching, I think it’s perfectly fine to be friends with your teachers on Facebook. Maintaining a relationship (friendship) with teachers is important for students. It helps them learn more about life and experiences.
If you’re new to teaching, or just new to Facebook, one thing you should definitely do before you step foot in the classroom is check your Facebook privacy settings. Students love to have the inside scoop on their teachers. You can be sure they’ll be checking out your online profiles, as soon as they’ve figured out your first name.

You can be actual friends without being Facebook friends.
