Numa Numa, Dancing Matt, Chris Crocker… Where Are They Now?

A meme, what once meant the inheritance of cultural genes is now synonymous with the LOLZ. Have you ever wondered what contributions those moments of genius provided to the human race? They have given us the Tron Guy, Bubb Rubb and “he who shall not be named !” which have provided us with innumerous countless hours of face exercising that help vend off wrinkles and burn calories as well. As all celebrities should be treated we should keep up with them and put them on a pedestal, so we at the Thoughtpick blog wanted to do our part after wondering “Where are they now?”

Television dead?

Allow me to begin this post by presenting you with a short personal experience of mine which will, in turn, help you realize how I thought about this topic and where my ideas are coming from in addition to where they are headed!

I have been a mildly heavy Internet user for the past two years or so. A year ago, my interests in reading, writing and going out started changing: I started spending more time on Facebook and less time for going out and seeing friends. Since March 2009, I think I became an “Internet addict”, replacing most outings and TV time with Internet use, especially social media related sites and channels! I can recall that the last time I actually sat down and watched anything on TV was late March of this year!

With this little story in mind, let’s take a deeper look on how social media is discretely replacing the role of our beloved television!
