Social Networking goes primary

The Social networking phenomenon went to primary school this week when the Disney Corporation bought the newly successful Club Penguin for a few hundred million dollars.

From the Club Penguin site:

“Chatting and gaming are the two most popular online activities for kids, yet most virtual worlds are focused on an older audience. We wanted to create a fun, online world that we’d be comfortable letting our own kids visit.”

So where will social networking end, or rather, when will it enter your classroom as a viable way?
