Post Fronts Facebook for 19th Time

This one is a bit borderline, because it touches on several social media services, including Facebook. Some of the previous ones have, too. So I'd like to make clear that my definition for counting is that the article has a focus on social media, with Facebook being a significant component of that, but the piece can also include a significant focus on other social media sites as well.

Friday's front pager is about teachers using social media, and the Virginia Board of Education voting on Thursday to
encourage school districts statewide to adopt policies regulating social-media use by teachers. The move was not as bold as an earlier proposal but still ranks the state as among the first to address such issues.
In other words, Virginia considered doing something significant, but didn't. Not usually the kind of thing that makes front page news. But it provided a peg for the rest of the story, which looked at issues including sexual misconduct via social network.

Here's the updated honor roll:

Sept 2006, Oct 2006, Feb 2007, Nov 2007, March 2008, April 2008, May 2008, June 2008, July 2008, Sept 2008, March 2009, April 2009, Aug 2009, Aug 2009, Oct 2009, May 2010, July 2010, Dec 2010, March 2011.
