Facebook story

There is a piece in today's Boston Globe (you need to register to read this site now - it's free) about a Fisher College student who was expeled for postings he wrote in a discussion board on Facebook. We talked about this in class the other day - how what you write online should always be considered as something that is out there for the public to read - even on sites like Facebook where the "members" are limited to people with a .edu e-mail. There are no private spaces on the Web. Whether he should have been expeled or not, is another matter all together, which we can discuss in class.
