“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.

Is Facebook’s Dominance in Danger? BBC Reports

Facebook Compared to Countries

Facebook may have 500 million friends, but it also has many, many rivals – including some huge ones in some of the world’s largest and fastest growing economies“.

The reports argues that there are new emerging competitors that threaten Facebook’s “All-Mighty” status: Local Facebook-like platforms and social gaming platforms such as The Great Indian Parking Wars, Orkut and Ibibo.

“While all the hype in the West is on the social networking giants such as Facebook and Twitter, consumers of some of the world’s fastest growing economies are embracing local champions.”

Read more on the report here.

What do you think: Do you agree with the main idea of the report? Do you believe that a similar platform is able to win the competition with social media giant, Facebook?
