Fakebook, not Facebook, for ESL learners

I came across this great resource a while ago, but just took a closer and though about its ESL implications. It's called Fakebook and can be used by students to "fake" being a famous person and create a fake profile with pics, videos, and other information. This has a lot of cool applications for ESL. If a teacher wanted to assign a celebrity role to each student, then have them comment on each other's profiles, pictures, and videos, it could create a great sense of camaraderie while helping to build grammar, writing, and even typing skills. Below is an example someone did of Celine Dion.
