Editor's Note
As the national debate regarding thefacebook intensifies (see Michael J. Bugeja's recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education ( Section: Chronicle Careers, Volume 52, Issue 21, Page C1), I would like to invite our readers to add to this discussion about what is happening on your campuses. Stories related to administrative policies and practices, as well as educational sessions for students, are particularly welcome. I might add that Student Affairs On-Line was ahead of the curve on this issue as we published our first story a year ago.
