Using MySpace and Facebook to teach critical evaluation

This post from Funky Librarian is great!
"The other day, however, when I was teaching library research skills in a lower-division Communications Class, something really wonderful and curious happened: students were talking, laughing, arguing, and questioning. "
A discussion on the merits of two articles (one magazine and one scholarly) led to discussions about MySpace and Facebook and genuine engagement about issues of security and authority. Recommended.
