Is LinkedIn's move towards the addition of teen-focused "University Pages" brilliant or a bad idea? Thoughts? (Thanks EdSurge for this lead!)
I am leaning towards brilliant... as long as:
1) Young people's identities are truly secure
2) There is a sufficient "education" component re: the value and possible pitfalls of social media interaction re: future employment etc.
3) These young people aren't just "ad eyes"
I am excited to track how this new addition to the LinkedIn site grows and develops and impacts a generation of young people for whom finding a job is a HUGE stumbling block. As an avid user and fan of the platform and its power to connect people to each other and new opportunities, I am hopeful. What are your thoughts?
