In the past I’ve written about some good services teachers can use to create private social networks for their classrooms and schools. This afternoon I found another service that makes it easy to set up your own private social network, it’s called Fridge. Signing up and creating your first private social network on Fridge takes just a couple of minutes. Once you’ve created your account and network you can invite people to join your network. You can create multiple separate groups within your Fridge account. The video below explains the benefits of Fridge.

The option to create and control multiple groups within your Fridge account could be useful for teachers like me that teach multiple sections of the same course. That feature enables us to monitor and participate in the online conversations taking place in each section without having to create and manage multiple log-ins.
