What kind of post is that? If that post has an effect on other person's life. The name was put into shame or scandal maybe, yes you can. You can even use that post as an evidence. That is a prima facie evidence. Please give us more details on the matter. Have a nice day babes!

You are not sure if she is talking about you if she has not give the name. Don't worry about that post babes, it could be somebody else. As long as your conscience is clear she can do you no harm.

First and foremost, Facebook is a public platform (it's a social networking site). It's no longer the classroom therefore, anything posted there is likened to some person posting to your page. I don't think you could sue someone for posting anything online unless he/she has copied it from someone else. Further, I think the issue would only be escalated when the person caused your grades to fail or if he/she has posted that he/she plans to fail you or anything school related. You cannot sue him/her but you could copy the page and the comments and go to the dean or the Principal and complain there for unprofessionalism instead. Have a great mylot experience ahead!

I don't really know the outcome, but remember, the grades are not made by the dean, it's by the teacher. I would suggest that you keep clear of things until the final grade is out, else you'd surely fail the class. Further, she/he could just say that it wasn't him/her making those remarks stating that he/she left his/her account somewhere and perhaps someone else did that. You can't really prove it was him/her.

Facebook is a public place , one must be responsible in anything that she posted . Just ignore that teacher , she might have forgotten that she is a teacher on or off school therefore she must live to the highest standard , must be morally a good example. What she is doing is reflecting what kind of teacher she is. She is not defaming you instead she is defaming herself. So sad for her , that actions in Fbook demerits her. Never go down to her level. No you can't sue her because she did not really mention your name publicly only you understood that its for you. Don't too much worry for this, if she is causing you so much trouble then unfriend him if so worst then block her.

yeah right, but she is so annoying. even my mother (her own aunt) is getting angry because my mother red some bad post about her. so my mother decided to go to our barangay chairman to tell all these things. i think my mother can't take it anymore.

Uhm. I'm not really sure on this but what I know is you can't really sue someone just because he or she posted some negative things on facebook. Unless, they're posting some bruatlity and violence. yes you may. But just writing? I'm not really sure. Or just send her a message regarding her negative writings. Atleast she has her first offense. If she's not really changing then make a 2nd offense, if still not working then give her what she's looking for, the 3rd and last offense. Everyone of us needs to learn our lesson, but someone some people are too blind to see their mistakes. I hope she'll change because it's not a good trait for a teacher to post negative writings in a social media like facebook. In behalf of her arrogance, I apologize. I'm a teacher. :)
