Reflection – how these schools use their pages in a professional capacity:

All of the above schools use Facebook very effectively in a professional capacity. Realising that in the present day many parents and carers will be users of Facebook, these schools have put this to their advantage by using the site as a fantastic communication tool. Each one of these schools uses Facebook to keep parents/carers up to date and informed, which is a fantastic benefit of technology. The social network is also used professionally, as parents/carers/relatives of the children attending these schools may feel more involved within the school community and are able to engage in conversation through posting comments. While the schools differ slightly in the content of their posts, it is clear by looking at their pages that Facebook provides a brilliant opportunity to gain insight into the life of each school.
