Muscogee Co. Schools employees not allowed to befriend students, parents on social media

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

If you want to be Facebook friends with your teacher, well it is not allowed in Muscogee County. The school district began 2012 with a new written social media policy affecting employees, parents and students.

The school board voted on the new policy back in November.

The new policy "strongly encourages" employees to keep their Facebook and Twitter pages private, to keep students and parents from accessing the pages.

The new policy also restricts employees from using school system computers networks or equipment to update their Facebook or Twitter pages.

A spokesperson for the school system says they were getting a lot of questions about what was allowed and what was not, so they decided they needed a concrete set of rules.
