I concur with TF Scientist. Teachers are professionals and should not be friends with their students on Facebook.
Teachers teach, not go out for a drink or dance. Education is steps towards learning--not merely achieving a diploma frequently the result of friendships. I never allow a student into my home or life. I am a friendly teacher--not friend of a student

Teachers we find who are "friends" on Facebook, usually are also bed companions; I have sat on many cases and found such friendships are detrimental to the student and to learning. There is no privacy on Facebook and everyone deserves a private life.

As a professional educator with doctorates in subject fields, teaching, and psychology, I disagree strongly. No student has any right to know about the private life of a teacher or other students. This leads to poor learning skills and dependency.
