Taking networking to the next level

I've been out of touch for a while. Not sick, called to assist in a political campaign, or anything like that -- the teaching load drastically increased.

My big challenge is coming up with a way to help students who have Facebook mastered for scheduling a party or study session how to transfer (extend) that talent to the world beyond college. The business and professional world is still about networking, right?

I incorporate news items and things I find on the web into my Facebook post, mention them in the face-to-face class, and bring in as many examples (and guests) as I can. Does it all make sense at some point?

What do you think?
