I do not "friend" my students until after they have graduated. This way I can keep in touch with them and help them if need be with their collegiate work (and I do get many inbox messages asking for help!!!). However, some of my colleagues do "friend" students and it seems to work just fine. One even has a page for his AP Calculus class and uses it for class announcements and such. It is a great way to use social networking for positive reasons!!!
