Now, I have found a really good response, which I will put forward to our ICT Committee - http://computerworld.co.nz/news.nsf/news/wireless-networks-in-the-enterprise-and-in-schools-p3
Rangitoto College has a fairly open policy in terms of filtering and initially allowed students access to Facebook, but that has now been stopped for two reasons – Facebook traffic was taking up too much bandwidth, and also to give students a break from the addictive nature of Facebook, says Hastie.This has to be one of the best response's I have seen, it talks about the addictive nature of Facebook. Schools are now giving students a break from an addition, the same as xbox, minecraft and a number of others.
I wonder how that statement will go down at school. Maybe we need a Facebook Anonymous group?
