Cloning an Object in an PCL

Here is an example on how to clone an object in a portable class library

I am using to help.  Add the Json.Net nuget package to any project in the solution that uses the PCL

Then you an serialize the object into Json and then deserialize it right away to create a clone of a object

        public T CloneObject<T>(T toBeCloned)
            T clone = default(T);
            string serialized = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(toBeCloned);
            clone = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<T>(serialized);
            return clone;
