1. Who was your last celebrity sighting? Who was the biggest celebrity sighting?

2. What's for dinner?

3. How hot is it by you?

Quite a few humanities classes now use social media sites in coursework. I'd be surprised if many profs under 40 are unaware of the existence of Facebook and twitter and how they can be used pedagogically.

One college teacher I know spends time on facebook too, Last spring she'd even share pics of her daughter at break time.  She was incedibly proud of her DD as she had just accepted a swim scholarship to some college down south.  I thought it was cute.

I keep in good touch with three of my favorite college professors through FB-- one English professor and two theater professors--  love it.

Well, yeah, the very LAST thing you'd ever want from a professor is competence in technology....
