We also discussed Fakebook which is a site that looks and acts like Facebook and allows students to create imaginary profile pages for use with research, content, teaching, etc. Some of the pros I see with Fakebook are it can be a great way to encourage students to research, write, and engage in class projects and presentations. Also, students really want to be a part of social media and so this can be a great way to get them excited about learning and biography writing. Some of the cons can be that many parents feel nervous about things related to Facebook even though there is no actual social media elements involved.
