Leaving Facebook: 5 Reasons Your School Doesn't Need It Anymore

A session at HighEdWeb 2012

  • Douglas Lee Miller

Tuesday 9th October, 2012

4:00pm to 5:30pm (CST)

We've learned a lot from the social web. Building on the shoulders of platforms like Facebook designed to offer services for communication that are ostensibly free, Higher Education has been changed. But as the saying goes "nothing gold can stay." Before Facebook has the chance to become less instructive and more disruptive in the Higher Education Industry, and before the industry becomes too dependent on the "free" services Facebook offers in exchange for student data (let's be real, that's the trade off) it is time to sever the ties. Like a bird that now has wings, it is time for Higher Education to leave Facebook and fly on its own into a new social web future that more closely matches its needs. But what must that look like? Internal proprietary tools? More paid vendor solutions? The discussion about where to go starts now with leaving Facebook.
