  3. A Guide to Facebook's Family of Apps for Schools

This 12- page guide for schools and teachers, provides guidance on how to help staff use Facebook’s family of apps in a safe, professional, and positive way. 

In some schools, staff might choose to use Facebook’s WhatsApp service to help them stay in touch with each other, or the school might use their official Facebook Page to communicate to the wider community of parents and carers.

The guide focuses on two use cases:

  1. Broadcasting school messages to a wider audience through an official school channel such as a Facebook Page.
  2. To communicate for internal purposes between smaller groups of people through school-sanctioned or unofficial channels such as WhatsApp and Facebook Groups.

The apps which are extensively covered include:

  • Whatsapp
  • Facebook Pages
  • Facebook Groups
  • Facebook Live
  • Facebook Messenger
