Facebook changed your email address on your profile. We'll help you change it back.
Facebook changed your profile without telling you. In 2010, Facebook gave all its users an "@facebook.com" email address. Some people used it, most people didn't, but it was always there if you wanted it. Until now. Sometime this month, Facebook changed everyone's default emails to their @facebook.com accounts. Your personal and work email accounts are still in the system, but only the Facebook account is listed. How to sign up for the Ladue-Frontenac Facebook page. If you are like most of us and never use your Facebook email account, you'll want to add your regular email addresses to your account's profile page. Here's how to do that: (Click through the pictures on this article to see the above steps illustrated.) If you do want to use …

Board policy now meets satisfaction of all parties involved with Facebook in the classroom.
Back in late August a Ladue Middle School teacher filed a law suit over an imperfect bill involving the use of Facebook in school curriculum. Much water has passed under that bridge with a variety of compromises coming out of the Missouri State legislature since then. On Monday night at the regular Ladue School Board meeting, action was taken to formulate a new board policy dealing with the terms of social media. While the vote was 7-0 in favor of adoption, it didn’t go without some back and forth discussion. Former school teacher Jeff Kopolow, board member had reservations about voting yea on this issue. “And that’s only because I don’t think it goes far enough,” he reasoned. Kopolow, who in retirement teaches Missouri On Line High School…
