You may already be a member of the social networking site Facebook, or maybe you're still thinking it over. A couple of days ago, our own Jim Levy posted and linked to a Prawfsblawg discussion about the pros and cons of joining (and "friending" your current and former students).
If you have already plunged (or decided to take the plunge) into Facebook, check out "Facebook for Educators: An Instruction Guide for Teachers." Produced by Ben Ambrogi, the son of lawyer-blogger Robert Ambrogi, this seven-minute video tutorial walks you through the process of creating a Facebook profile and describes the basic features of the site (like the "Wall").
And if you're already plugged in to Facebook, why not become a fan of the Legal Writing Institute?
