It can be addictive, but it can also help when looking for a job, or other things. James has applied for a couple jobs he found there by following a CAD job site. I can't list the things I am selling on ebay here at DC, but I can post the links to them at Twitter and Facebook, so it helps get them more exposure. So while it can be a waste of time, it can also help with networking. I almost forgot, I got a part time (just a couple months) job through a connection on Twitter (at Outsource to Freelancers, IT Companies, Programmers, Web Designers from India, Russia, USA, and more - oDesk
). It won't be big money, but it could lead to something else. Job searching is what brought me to Twitter in the first place.
Has your son been looking for another job? (You don't have to answer that.). Maybe he could start using his hobby to help find a new job.
