The Perfect Social Media Fanatic Gift Guide

Do you feel the urge to spread the social media love in the analog meatland? Do you feel that some people need some more social media in their life? Or perhaps you feel that everyone will be put on the righteous path of social media fanaticism given the right kind of introduction or tool?

Regardless of the reason you convince yourself with, one thing should be clear in your head: A person with no friends or followers should not even exist, his existential strife should just tear him apart and hence your existence and its importance is tied to the percentage of the world population that get to hear about what you had for lunch. So if baiting others with a gift is the only way to get those privacy nuts, Amish or even toddlers to join social media then so be it!

Twitter Bear and the Facebook Penguin

Let’s face it, Twitter is not the most attractive platform, instead of having bright colors, pictures and videos you are essentially relegated to the SMS format so having a bear that would read your tweets in a cute Japanese Engrish accent is a great pull for girls of all ages. With this toy, they will be following you religiously in no time. On the other hand if your target is to add more Facebook friends then Pingo the Facebook Penguin is the right gift for you, a tomodashi for the social media kids. Though its a tad bit pricey at $150.

The Toddlers Social Media Play set

Why limit yourself to adults and teenagers when there is an entire untapped age group? Pass the mantle to the toddlers and get them started on their social media routine with the IOBR Shape sorting box. This will allow toddlers to inform the world of when they want to eat, sleep and any of their 4 other activities that they manage to achieve during their less than a 10 hour up-time.

Luckily there is no pesky 13 or older limit on this one

They Can Tweet Too

Hell, why limit your self to human followers when canines can tweet. With this dog accessory you can allow your dog to express themselves with one of 500 preloaded messages that can at least make a psychic guess at what your dog (or the neighbors for that matter) is thinking.
