Abstract

Facebook affords computer-mediated interaction between lecturers and their
students. Such mediated interaction may have both benefits and costs. The
current study examined the amount of lecturer-students' Facebook interactions,
tested lecturers' attitudes toward out-of-class communication (OCC) in general
and via Facebook, as well as their perceive threat of Facebook for their privacy.
382 Israeli Universities and Colleges' lecturers answered online questionnaires.
Lecturers that have Facebook profile and have students among their Facebook
friends have more positive attitude toward OCC, have higher level of actual
OCC, and feel higher level of immediacy toward their students than lecturers
that have no students among their Facebook friends. Lecturers that have high
concerns regarding loosing privacy do not accept students' friendship request,
and avoid OCC with students via Facebook, mainly to protect their privacy and
keep their reputation.
