There are about 1 billion people active users of the social media tools in the world. Social media has played an integral role in our lives. Remember how a single tweet inspired the youth of Egypt to gun against their President? It is just beautiful. It contributes to the new world order. The shy boy scores the girl by just saying “babe, may I please scan your BBM pin?” After that, just notice how the shy boy changes his relationship status on Facebook the next morning.
Social media is just bliss. Boy, are we in heaven?
The most popular social media tool, Facebook is being used for all sorts of things. Including of course, bragging about how one got full marks on a certain question in management accounting paper. [Really: who wants to know that], but we do it anyway. While we are still on the issue of Facebook, let me give you something to think about, have you perhaps wondered what your final status update will be?
Don’t you think that it would be very cool and comforting to read something like this “Greeting friends, post on my wall no more because I am now dead; peacefully resting. Your pokes hurt me no more :)” on which one of your top friends comment “Be Angelic, we miss your lies already! :(”
At TedGlobal 2011, Mashable’s Adam Ostrow delivered an interesting speech on the subject (final status update. The video really gives one something to reflect on. In the middle of his talk he shared something that really made me envy bloggers even more. Take my word when I say bloggers are immortal. Check the picture below about a blogger who instructed his family to update his blog when he finally loses the battle against cancer. It was his last blog post.
Intriguing, isn’t it?
What would you like your final status update to be?
