I loved the article! I'm working at a high school in the career center, and we're always looking for ways to get our less technically savvy students ready for the "real world". I think that using a Facebook site (as an organization) to demonstrate the things they're working on would be great! They could be in charge of keeping it up to date, and therefore practicing their computer skills, while also promoting the school's career center to other students. And what high school kid wouldn't be excited to be on Facebook during school?! I hope we can get this "okayed" by the administration. Facebook is currently blocked on the school computers.
Linkedin is also blocked by their computers. And, while it wouldn't be as much fun for them as Facebook, it would be a valuable resource for them that could serve as an online portfolio of their experiences. I would like to look more at this site.
