My stance: it is unethical to use any mainstream social media platform in a PK-8th classroom because 9th grade is the first year that ALL students can LEGALLY create accounts by the first day of school. It is illegal for children under 13 to create an account on mainstream platforms, so we "assume" they don't have them. Social networks for schools, like Edmodo, are fine in any capacity.

In the secondary classrooms everything should be done through a shared space- like a group or page on Facebook. Students and teachers shouldn't be friends with each other, but they can communicate for class purposes on the platform.
