FTFY

Earlier today, after blogging about a company called HomeJoy‘s lack of understanding of how memes work (and an RT from my buddy Kevin), their communications director shot me a note saying “message received.” Nice to see them paying attention. But it’s a slow day here in the office so I figured I’d help them out a bit more.

Seeing as how their key RTB is “$38 for a clean home” and they like the idea of memes, I made them a few.

 

Attention Homejoy, if you use any these, I expect royalties or commissions, or a free t-shirt, or something.

Nope, THIS is the worst thing about Facebook

Facebook Joke

 

Serious. What the fuck, people!

Is this the worst part about Facebook?

Facebook Customer Service

 

Sorry Foley, but seeing your customer service transactions in my newsfeed is strongly pushing me towards deactivating my account.

Remember when Facebook used to be cool?

And now, your social media fail of the day

Mt Gox Fail

 

 

Not only does Mt Gox (a BitCoin exchange) have their Twitter account set to auto-reply (a big no-no), the auto-reply message is basically just telling you to fuck off. AND THEN, the message is more than 140 characters!

Maybe they’re too busy watching their BitCoin valuation shoot the roof to care about something as silly as Twitter. That’s okay!

But if that’s your plan, why use Twitter at all?

Probably, because internet.

 

The Power of Facebook

This picture sums it up pretty well.

Call 911 or Go Viral – The Choice is Yours

Have you ever been watching TV and seen a video of something terrible happening to someone? Like this:

85,000 people have watched that video. It was shown on tons of major news outlets. Who was recording it? Why weren’t they calling for help? Are people more interested in getting their video on TV, or having it “go viral,” than in helping out someone in trouble?

My friend Ian Cohen recently wrote a post on the Weber Shandwick Social Studies blog about a time when he had to make a choice between calling 911 and recording a horrific accident. Here’s a little bit of it, click through to read the rest.

…I looked out my window and I saw a car across the street on fire. A car had crashed into a telephone pole and was going up in flames.

Instead of reaching for the phone to call 9-1-1, like you have been trained to do since a little kid, I did what I have been trained to do in my career and grabbed my camera (iPhone camera bc it was at arms length). I started taking a video of the car on fire as others ran across the street trying to help.
