“I Like It On…” Campaign — Learn Social Media by Example

October Is Cancer Awarness Month

It has been a confusing month already and we didn’t even get to Halloween yet! If you are like me, then you must have been confused and raised an eye brow or two after reading one sexually suggestive status updates after the other from your female friends popping on your Facebook feed.  “I like it on the floor next to the bed” said one of them, another said “I like it on the kitchen table“.

So, after asking one of them, it all became clear, they are talking about where they like to put their purses and the racy tones are there to raise awareness for breast cancer research since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

What is it about?

Thousands of ladies around the world have participated in the previous viral campaign to raise awareness for breast cancer that started in January of this year, in which they shared with the world their bra color. Now it’s time for something a bit racier, and that’s how the “I Like It…” campaign started off and shortly, it went viral.

The whole objective is that when people see the status they will surely ask its holder for the reason for this sudden candidness, and hence learn about breast cancer through this interaction and in turn raising awareness about it.

‘It Gets Better’ Campaign — Learn Social Media by Example


In the past few weeks, the LGBT community – especially in the United States – has been hard hit with stories of one teen’s suicide after the other. While gay and questioning teens have always been a high risk group when it comes to suicide and although programs like the Trevor project have been set up to provide aid, guidance and assistance for those teens, they are still cutting their lease on life in droves.

After the death of four teens all over the United states, the public sentiments culminated with the death of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University student who has committed suicide just last week after he has been bullied and black mailed by his roommate who live-streamed private videos of him on the internet.
