One of the things that has annoyed me at my job is keeping in touch with the kids I work with. They're overcommitted and stretched thin in addition to being, well, teenagers. Email wasn't working, and individual phone calls are both excessively time consuming and difficult to track.

So when we met to have a nice, rejuvenating strategic planning session, one of the issues we needed to clear up was how to make our communication effective.

The kids don't check their email hardly ever, but they're on Facebook 24/7 apparently.

And now they have a legit reason beyond just being social. I've made a profile for my organization, and within that profile I made a private group just for the teens I work with on an ongoing basis.
