I have been using Shelfari for about a year and find it very helpful to me. I would have students set up their own accounts. They would need to then add you as a friend so that you could monitor their usage. I would allow them to choose their own friends beyond that.

e site that you shared is just what I was looking for to use with my fifth graders. Did you set one up for your class and have everyone put their entries under your name or did you set up an account for each student and have them as part of your group? I'm thinking I'd have more control if they worked under my name.
