Such a hard choice. I can see how high school teachers will find this much more difficult than us here at the primary grades - being that the age of 13 is a magical age in which children are actually allowed to have their own email, post on certain blogs, and the such. Personally, I would not add students, but my students are not of age. I do have high school teacher friends that absolutely DO NOT use Facebook or other sites for fear of just that - teachers blurring the line between school and personal connections.
Thanks for the great post - I'm going to do some surveying of friends and colleagues.
