Yes, blog readers and "A new faculty majority" followers, there is a story behind the popular Facebook page's sudden disappearance—and I will blog it. Until then, I invite you to visit and like the new Facebook page, Precarious Faculty. Finally, neither our overall social media reach nor individual Twitter streams, blogs, G+ and other destinations in the PFR network have been adversely affected by the change. Many experienced more growth than usual.

Adjunct Justice's dramatic increase in traffic is the silver lining to the recent FB disruption. Visitor numbers keep climbing. Next visit, remember to click LIKE and jump those numbers to match too. Make @AnaMFores' AJ the #1 adjunct page on Facebook. PS: don't forget to sign her better pay for adjuncts petition too.

Students in Quebec were asked to send their march route to the cops & they replied with this.

Also on Plashing Vole (UK higher ed, VL or Visiting Lecturer for a number of years) with more discussion of and commentary on protests and the differences between Quebec and the rest of Canada, notably, "Quebec is a special case because it's a European-style social democratic state within a country rapidly and forcibly being converted into a cutting edge free-market fundamentalist one" and "If Canada's corporate government manages to smash Quebec, that's the end of social justice in North America

Also from Plashing Vole, thought process marking essays, Cymru an bach. And according to @PlashingVole, every teacher's inspiration,
