Internet Party: Social Sites as People

Or, Why Nobody Gets Anything Done On the Web.

A new fav. Enjoy.

The Google portion is one of my favorites. Also, Facebook not caring.

YOLO, LOL, SMRICJRES. Okay, I made that last one up.

Friday Frivolity: Look at this Instagram

During a very interesting professional development presentation at Kent State University yesterday, I was exposed to this highly entertaining video from College Humor: Look at this Instagram. It says a lot about our desperate need to overuse fun social tools. And what it says about us. Visual communication can be an amazing way to tell stories, but what story are we inadvertently telling? Take a look at your social media posts, bios and pictures. What are you really telling people?

Special thanks to Eric Stoller for the presentation and for showing me this video. I’ll be posting some more in-depth thoughts about his “Digital Identity, Social Media and Higher Education” presentation as time allows. But in the meantime, enjoy…

 

My apologies, but College Humor has disabled embedding this video. You can still click on it to watch on YouTube. It’s worth the click.

Friday Frivolity – The Devil Went Down to Georgia

Or did he?

It’s out of order, but read We’re waiting on your answers, Mr. Daniels from Tomato Nation

Then read Thirty Nine Questions for Charlie Daniels by John Moe.

I laughed and laughed.

Hat tip to Sarah Wurrey for tweeting this gem.
