Social Media

Is Social Media a fad???  
Watch this quick video, absolutely fascinating.


(For some reason this video is too wide, sorry, you get the gist!)


Talk about some statistics .... Facebook would be the fourth largest country, umm come again?!  I mean it is addicting, and I probably spend way too much time on it but that's scary insane.  

Do you belong to multiple Social Network Website?
-- too many possibly!


Speaking of media, Mark Cuban blogged about societies most prized possession in the near future, if it isn't for individuals already, is their phone.  Think about it, everything we need is right at our fingertips.  I am sure we have all gotten to the point where we can't leave the home without it, even if we are running one errand.  Everywhere we go we see signs that say, "Turn off your cell phone while waiting, etc."


What's the craziest App you found on your Blackberry, Droid, iPhone, etc.  I saw one yesterday that keeps track of your "lady time" and even tells you when your ovulating.  HAHA -- That is ridiculous if you ask me.

Yesterday I found a condom game! Apparently you try to get the sperm in them. Seriously!?? Who would have the time to come up with the game, and WHO would want to play it!??

Great post Kelsey! I love that everywhere we go you see a sign that says something about turning off your phone, yet there is always that ONE person that doesn't and it never fails their phone rings the LOUDEST!

I dont really download apps on my BB. I have facebook, twitter and google maps. I have actually been thinking of deleting my fb account but people get upset cause they like my status' hahahaha I loved this post.

I've seen this... So interesting! Social media is actually part of my job.. which I find insane! I mean.. I do lots of other things, but we have a social media team for my workplace now and diligently plan content for twitter, facebook, youtube, etc.. Companies cannot plan to even compete these days unless they have a presence. It's just nuts! I'm also starting executive video blogs, yada yada.. Crazysauce. Just crazy!

ha ha, it is crazy what they offer out there. I spend, I know, too much time on my computer, as you will see it is midnight. Up until about a month ago though, I am proud to say I didn't know what an app was!

Great post! I spend WAY too much time on facebook and my iPhone. One thing I have done to help make my facebook time more efficient is delete everyone off of my friends list that I'm not really friends with ;-) Oh, and if I leave the house without my phone, I freak out! I feel so vulnerable without it.

Kelly said...

COOL video!! That is sooo neat. Just to think-- even five years ago, we weren't texting (or at least I wasn't!) I was thinking about it all yesterday morning... how we used to have a huge car phone that stayed in a bag in our car, hahaha!

Happy Wednesday, Kelsey! :-)

I like facebook but that's about it, I try and limit my internet time...it could be addictive! I can only imagine what my boys will have to deal with in 10 years!!! I never even had a cell phone 10 years ago!

My craziest app I saw? Read my post on Tiger Text!

Yeah, my husband definitely pointed that app out to me the other night - WEIRD!

Sooooo COOL!! I'm sharing it, thanks!

Sammy said...

Awesome post! That's a crazy video, mostly because it's true. Thanks for sharing!

They showed this video in one of my college classes and everyone was speechless!! It's crazy!!! Hopefully in August I'll get a teaching job and what's so crazy is that my students will be more knowledgeable on computers and social media than me! And the craziest app on my Droid is a free radar detector!!

Christy said...

Wow what a shocking video! I can't tell if that's scary or not!

Jenn @ WestSacHoney said...

I love this! I'm tempted to send it to all my Account Executives so they get the idea!

Left you a blog award over on my blog! :)

Social media is SO time consuming, but so much fun at the same time! I try to find a happy balance, and often I don't turn on my computer at night bc I don't want to get sucked into everything! The phone turned off though? That's hard to do for sure. ;) Craziness!
