What do schools know about our posts?
I was just writing another positive post about my son's school and it reminded me of a question I'd been thinking about. CC is a pretty powerful forum, and the schools must certainly want to know what we are saying about them here. They could just use the search function, I suppose, but that function doesn't necessarily work all that well in capturing references that are buried in the body of a message. I wonder whether CC or its parent offer some sort of clipping service - anybody know? There must be monetization going on somewhere. (Not that it's a bad thing, I'm just curious.)6 replies
