Though I am thinking instead of Cheers & Jeers, I do Like and Fail Whale! Get it? Like button from Facebook is Cheer and Fail Whale from Twitter is Jeer! I am creative that way. (insert crickets here)
Okay, okay.. moving on.. I present my Like and & FW!
-This week Google announced you can now use a rich text signature within Gmail. Very nice feature and very cool. Though I have to say I am not looking forward to getting more emails with pictures of peoples dogs and kids at the bottom.. yes Mom I am talking to you. Hit The LIKE button on this.
-Twitter rolled out @earlybird. In short it is a Twitter account that offers discounts and deals to people who follow the account. I am thinking they are a lot late to that game. It is called Groupon, they might want to check it out. Huge FAIL WHALE to the Earlybird.
-With nothing better to over 2.3 million people watched TMZ’s live broadcast of Lilo getting sentenced to 90 days. Yes, over 2.3 million had nothing better to do at work. Glad we have streaming video for that! How about a FAIL WHALE to me, cause well.. I watched the whole thing…., no I really did… boy I need a hobby.
-Facebook continues its steps to take becoming a part of everything in our life and is rolling out Like buttons for email. Does it scare me? Yep. Do I kind of like the idea? Yep. Do I like the like button? Yep I LIKE it
- A study found that the first thing women do in the morning, is check in on Facebook, before using the bathroom. Yep, 39% say they are addicts. You can see more of the stats here, its amazing and scary. So for women with strong bladders, I give it a LIKE
Oh and do you give this sort of format a LIKE or FAIL WHALE? Do I do it again?
