That’s a exactly what Australian comedy show ‘The Hungry Beast’ was wondering. They have created a video called ‘The Offline Social Network’. The video basically pokes fun at the information people post on their Facebook account.
In the video comedians Nick McDougall and Nick Hayden walk around with blue books with the word ‘Face’ on it and ask people questions that Facebook asks to fill in your profile.
You have to watch the video to understand, but I can tell you this much. If somebody comes up to you and asks ‘What are you doing right now’ and after you answer it repeat it through a loudspeaker for the world to know you might feel a little embarressed. 🙂
The video made me laugh. I actually already tweeted about it, but came across it again and since it made me go ‘tjongolongo’ I decided to post it on my blog as well.
I do have to say, we may laugh about the video, but it does makes you think (or at least it did me) about what it is you’re posting online. I try to go by the rule: If I wouldn’t say it offline, I shouldn’t post it online!
