Editor's Viewpoint: Fair dinkum, Brooke
We all know the disadvantages of social networking sites - from cyber-bullying to organising riots - but they can also have their good points as Australian Brooke Franklin found out in Derry.
She went online to look for a job so she could stay in the Maiden City and supporters set up a Facebook page to attract prospective employers.
The self-promotion worked and now Brooke has a job to fund her continuing stay in the city. Congratulations to her for her enterprise and also to those in the city who demonstrated their faith in her by helping her gain employment.
