    when did these posts start being posted to facebook?
    Can I block that happening?
    If not, this will be my last post.

    Can you screenshot some TES posts that have appeared on Facebook from here @hammie to show us. This would concern me too.

    Hammie where are you? You can't leave us in suspense :eek:... what are you referring to?

    my latest post suddenly appeared on the TES Facebook account/page . I've never posted work related anything on facebook for lots of reasons especially as it gives my full name, workplace etc.
    So if TES insist on linking the two, I will no longer be able to post on here which is a shame as I enjoy one of the few forums which usually remains focussed on debate rather than personal abuse.

    I can see it - the comments you've made on there are clearly visible as the real you as you've got the same profile pic and it does indeed show your name.

    From TES user guide (it won't allow me to 'quote' it properly)
    Please remember the need for anonymity when posting about sensitive issues in this forum or in the rest of the Community site.

    It is advisable to protect your identity.

    So with this in mind:

    Please do not post under your real name

    Please do not mention too many details that could make you or your place of work easily identifiable.

    Please make sure that you have displayed your username on the site before you post on the forums.

    If your anonymity has been compromised @hammie (by tes flouting it's own code of conduct :eek:?) you might like to email help@tes.com
    I shall tag @TES_Rosaline as well on your behalf as any suggestion of a lack of anonymity is likely to lose a good number of potential and long standing posters

    I can't see anything that strikes of cross feeding from here to facebook but I'm also concerned. I generally don't make a big thing about working as a teacher on facebook because that's for me to catch up with people socially etc.

    Actually I've just found you commenting on something. It looks like you posted a comment to a news article. Back in the day the website handled that with your TES ID but I noticed some time ago that it wanted to use facebook so I've stopped commenting on those.

    Hello @hammie,

    The comment has been removed.

    Thank you @lizziescat for alerting me to the situation.

    I'm glad that @hammie 's post has been removed but can our posts from TES still just appear on Facebook under our Facebook/real names or not? @TES_Rosaline as I've found the posts above confusing.

    Also @Moony what do you mean by 'commenting on a news article' do you mean the education news thread? Is it just these posts appearing on Facebook.

    The TES is a news outlet, it publishes articles in its print edition as well as its online edition. If you comment on an article it wasn't you to log in via Facebook not use your TES account.

    Thank you for trying to explain the situation to me.

    Just to ensure I'm understanding 100% correctly, if I read a news article in the main TES publication i.e...


    ...(nothing to do with the Community threads at all). Then, any comment I add in response to an article I read requires me to sign in with my Facebook account and my response post would appear on my own Facebook page as well as on TES.

    Is that correct?
