Take a look at this abstract detailing research done by the Babson Survey Research Group regarding higher education faculty and their greater use of social media. I was sooo surprised to learn that nearly two-thirds of all faculty surveyed have used social media during a class session, and 30% have posted content for students to view or read outside class. I would have thought it to be less. Also, take note of the two most pressing concerns about faculty use of social media: privacy and integrity.
