Abstract

This study examines the perceptions of 83 college students about their university professors who are Facebook friends. The relevance and valence of disclosures were compared between disclosures made in the classroom and those made on Facebook and were found to be significantly different. Students’ perceptions of teacher credibility were shown to decrease as relevance of disclosures increased and as negativity increased.
