Well, we all have our share of stories of parents adding you on Facebook, random relatives trying to be friends and sometimes even our professors trying to be cool. But, this one crosses all limits of creepiness.
In three separate incidents, professors in New York City have been fired for flirting with their students on Facebook. One of the teachers clicked picture while kissing an 18-year-old student and posted it on the social networking site. But apparently even that wasn't enough, as the professor even posted lewd comments under the photos - "This is sexy. I'm not a gynecologist, but I'll take a look inside," reported Newser.Another of the professors sent inappropriate messages like telling the girl she was pretty and that her boyfriend didn't deserve a 'beautiful girl' like her.
While the professors have been fired, the Department of Education is yet to come up with an official policy against such student-teacher misconducts.
