Should you become Facebook friends with your students?

That's the question posed by Professor Robert Vischer on the PrawfsBlawg.  It's an interesting one that Professor Vischer allows others to answer in the comments which you can read here.  Of course, feel free to start your own discussion in the comment section, below.  Hat tip to the Above The Law Blog.

I am the scholarship dude.

I think it's fine to "friend" former students if they initiate contact with you, but it's definitely not o.k. to "friend" current students for a number of reasons some of which should be obvious. For a professor to initiate contact with a former student (rather than vice versa) may or may not be o.k. depending on where such action falls on the "creepiness" scale.
