CLAYTON, MO. (KPLR) - I brought my chair to Clayton because this is where the latest Facebook flap is.  The principal is on her way out.  It seems she created a fake Facebook page and then tried to friend a number of her students.

If that's true, we might never know her motives and that's what makes this case difficult to understand.

If she wanted to keep an eye out for any potential danger that's one thing, if she wanted to spy on her students that's another.

Either way, friending someone under false pretenses is bad news, especially when you are in charge of kids.

Here's something else that's disturbing.

Apparently more than 100 unsuspecting students and parents accepted an invitation to be friends with a phony friend.

That should be a lesson to us all to be more careful over accepting invitations to be a friend.

I'm JB and that's The Way It Oughta Be.
