Missouri lawmakers reversed their ban of student-teacher communication on social networking sites. Instead, the decision will be up to each district, requiring electronic media policies in place by March of next year. The judge that blocked the ruling said the law could have had a chilling effect on free speech. In other news, Facebook’s new platform makes sharing information frictionless, but are its new features a cause for privacy concerns? Many sharing apps allow Facebook to track every webpage you visit. Make sure to check all your third party apps and opt-out of any unwanted sharing. And finally, the Dish Network announced that for as little as $10 a month, its subscribers can have access to the Blockbuster Movie Pass. The cheapest plan will give you access to DVD and videogame rentals by mail and thousands of streaming movies.
