President Janet Dudley-Eshbach had a personal account on Facebook, which was not part of the official Salisbury University Web site. The photos in Facebook were from a family vacation in Mexico with her daughter and were meant to be shared only with family and close friends.
"My understanding was that, with my privacy settings in Facebook, my page could be viewed only by those to whom I granted access," said President Dudley-Eshbach.
"Many of us are learning about the positives and negatives of public networking sites such as Facebook. I regret that some of these family vacation photos, with captions that were only intended to be humorous, were included on Facebook," said President Dudley-Eshbach. "I did not intend for these photos to end up in the public domain, and I am grateful that this was brought to my attention. I sincerely apologize for any offense anyone may have taken."
There is no university policy for faculty or staff regarding the contents of non-university sites.
