  1. The University has recently become aware of a number of unacceptable comments from students on websites such as Facebook and MySpace.

  5. It is widely recognised that these websites are a great way to keep in touch and share views with friends and that students have every right to make legitimate comments.  It should be noted, however, that derogatory and offensive comments about Keele staff will be taken very seriously by the University and could lead to disciplinary action against the student(s) concerned.  Students may also face legal action from the members of staff concerned for defamation and harassment.
