New social media policy for West Virginia schools


    
     Every school has a point of no return when social media begins to allow students to harass and bully  each other online.
  Last year, and every year before that, there were no legal limits to what students could do on social networks when it came to school. But, beginning this year, a new state-wide policy has been created and enforced on students, with a separate one for teachers and other faculty as well.
     This new policy was created due to the large and ever-increasing popularity of social networks like Facebook, twitter, and tumblr. Almost every teenager and adult in the nation has a Facebook profile. Digital Buzz Blog states that Facebook is used by one in every thirteen people on Earth and 250 million log on every day.
     It’s a huge responsibility entrusted to those who agree to the terms of the site and actually follow the rules, but not everyone does. This is the purpose of the new policy. It is there to warn and protect us.  It prevents students from harassing others and being harassed.
     According the principal, William Hosaflook, last year there were more than fifty cases of online harassment and in almost all of them the police were involved. With the new policy in work, the administrators have complete control over social media problems. The police aren’t involved unless something illegal is done.
      “If I can stop it the first time, I’ve made progress.” says Hosaflook.
     Though it can’t completely control our behavior, it does present consequences. Students need to remember that actions outside of school can get them punished in school.
     The summary of the new policy can be found in the student handbook or online.

    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

  6. I tried anyway. Heaven knows why. Maybe just to see if I could or maybe because I was tired of working for the man hating my job and staying in debt. The first few months I just kind of half assed it. Like I said, I was mainly doing it for me. As I started to earn an income, make connections, helping people and getting results of my own...I really realized the potential.
