Also, out of curiosity, what reason would I have for coming here and lying to any of you? Some of you have insinuated that I'm lying about any of this.
I expected that you'd simply answer the question in a non-condescending way and I wouldn't have to be defending myself with every post. That's why I didn't say anything. I said not only do I not WANT to contact her, I cannot contact her. Why do you need the reason for WHY I can't contact her? Why did I have to go out of my way to say I got a new phone? None of that was even mentioned or even relevant to the original post.
Your logic is ridiculous.
I don't see how it doesn't make sense. Maybe you just don't understand.
That makes no statistical sense at all. You're 100% sure I'm lying?
No college professors use Facebook as a means of communication LOL.
Nearly 85% of faculty have a Facebook account, two-thirds are on LinkedIn, and 50% are on Twitter according to research from Faculty Focus. But, professors’ use of social media shows we are behind the relationship curve when it comes to connecting with students. Only 32% have friended undergrad students and about half (55%) connect with some students after graduation. - See more at: http://www.facultyfocus.com/articles/edtech-news-and-trends/should-professors-use-facebook-to-communicate-with-students/#sthash.SlUnHK5G.dpuf
I can see how instructors in large, survey courses with perhaps hundreds of students wouldn’t want to follow this advice. I wouldn’t either. But, most of us teaching in upper-level courses have students in a dedicated major with relatively high overlap with our interests. Faculty already on Facebook tend to post comments, articles, and highlights related to the discipline and that provides an instant connection with our students. This leads to the next reason to connect with students through social media. Fourth, the number one best way I’ve found to keep track of our graduates is through our Facebook group page for our major. We can post job openings, graduate news (like congrats on new positions), and activities within the major all in one place. A huge plus is that current students can connect with grads from prior years in the Facebook group for networking purposes. I’m sure you can still be an effective teacher without connecting with students on Facebook. I can also understand why some of my colleagues may not want to engage with students on social platforms. But, if you’re looking for a way to communicate with them the way they communicate, learn something about what’s going on in their lives, and to stay connected after they graduate, then inviting the class to join you on Facebook is a good start.

One way to use Facebook as part of a course.
I encourage faculty members who want to integrate Facebook into their courses to set up a Facebook group and use the group to continue class discussions, allow students to ask questions, and encourage students to post and comment on class-related links (news articles, etc.). In a paper that will be published shortly, we make the case for faculty to actively participate in such groups to increase student involvement and improve course performance.
I said not only do I not WANT to contact her, I cannot contact her.
If you do not want to contact her, then you have wasted the time of everyone
