Social media parody

Heck. I spend a lot of time quoting stats from videos like these. Now I only hope that these new ‘fake’ stats don’t start to creep in to my presentations Smile

A great parody of the original social media revolution video and well worth watching…

Rotating ballerina illusions and our foolish eyes

Wow.  I love illusions that fool our brains totally.  I’ve been frustrated with the right brain, left brain illusion of that spinning dancer for ages until I worked out how to see the rotation both ways.  Now there’s a spinning ballerina illusion that just foxes me too. Have a look…

 

It is impossible to tell which way the dancer in silhouette is rotating.  My brain has been fooled. Fortunately the New Scientist explains why we make these mistakes

Hopefully glancing out of the corner of your eyes at the animation will enable you to see things in a different perspective…

Enjoy Smile

Oops. Be very careful what you post on Facebook

Oh dear.  I’m convinced that people think that they are talking to their best friends when they chat on Facebook.  They forget that some of their ‘friends’ have screen grab software such as the Snipping tool, to take a screenshot of their foolishness.

And people just can’t be that dumb can they??

The Buzzfeed important lessons learned post has some howlers – and there’s more from the Failblog….

Oops.  Things are never as secure as you think they are.  Facebook is NOT private.  just don’t say anything that you don’t want to have quoted back to you in a court of law…

Get social with the Heineken social Christmas tree

Wow. 

48 LCD screens, 11 metres in height.  The new way of displaying messages from your friends and loved ones – and it’s made by Heineken.

The Heineken social Christmas tree is a project created by the artist Edwin Cheong.  It’s intended to marry Art and technology by displaying Facebook images on the physical tubular tree.

If you’re in Singapore over Christmas, pop down and have a look at the real tree on Clarke Quay.  It’s on display from December 17th to 26th December.  And if you can’t quite make it to Singapore, then you can create your own tree on Facebook and share it with your friends…

Do you have a Twitter addiction and tweet your meal before you eat?

I get a lot of images of food on my Twitter stream from the people I follow – it seems to be de rigeur to take a photo of your food before you eat it.  So this infographic from the Googly gooeys made me smile.  I wonder how many of my Twitter followers are addicted to Twitter?

I think that number 6 on this list has been missed out.  It has got to be: You have an unhealthy obsession with your Klout score and agonise over minute rises and falls every day…

How many more signs are there that you’re addicted to Twitter?
