Social Media Eulogies

Everyone needs a little fun from time to time, right? Something to think about which sparks that inner creativity that you probably don’t get to unleash during your daily grind? If that’s the case then let’s see how creative you are? Let your hair down, or loosen up that tie, and get those creative juices going!

We all (most of us, at least) love social media. But what would happen if it all just went away? If, tomorrow, Twitter caught a little buckshot in the tweethind, Facebook wrote it’s last chapter, or YouTube had its tubes tied…what would people say in memory of them? If you had to write an eulogy for any social media service, how would you write it? Would you share the wonderful memories of your beloved service, or the trials and tribulations?
Go ahead…let’s see what you got! I’ll start
Facebook, Facebook, oh Facebook…
We shall surely miss the years
Being killed by zombies and pirates,
Whacked by mobsters…the tears.
If there’s one thing we’ll never forget
Is a lesson of life we’ve learned
Always change your privacy settings
Or your sure to be burned.

Seems only fair that a Twitter eulogy should be less than 140 characters. So I’ve chosen Haiku:

No longer followed by
Half nude girls and marketeers.
Twitter emptiness.

Oh how we’ll miss the daily status updates,
And the stalking of strangers without a care,
But in the end we all have to pay the Facebook rate,
Of crashed and burned computers from countless viruses and malware

I’m still waiting for a usefull Tweet.
No more “I’m back!” posts of Facebook (as if we were all waiting for you to come “back”!)
And best of all… self-involvement now taken to new level with “Ego Book”….

Here lies the promise of generations past,
the power of unleashing citizen potential
and the prospect of unexpectedly connecting
with your friend from first grade.
