Sit on My Facebook! – Internet “Love” Song by The Scribes [Video]

Once upon a time there was the love that we all knew, but then came a different kind of love, one which takes intimacy to a whole new level! This type of love is called the “internet love“.

In short, and without trying to glorify the topic, this generation of youth redefines love in terms of social media and internet terms, channels, tools and websites! Love is transformed from actions in real life to any other virtual actions such as poking, messaging, tagging, befriending of Facebook, tweeting and so on.

By chance, I came across this sarcastic video and it fully explains what I am talking about. I present to you: Sit on My Facebook!

What do you think: Do you feel sad about how love is being perceived these days? Do you agree that it is unnerving how social media and the internet use our feelings and emotions to grow and expand?

Looking forward to your comments below…

Seven Things We Now Know From 2009’s Search Results

Although 2009 is almost one month short of being over, Google has already published its yearly Zeitgeist, charting the year’s most popular searches, and subsequently charting the mindset of the world, as reflected digitally. Naturally, Yahoo and Bing followed suite.

It probably doesn’t come off as a surprise that Michael Jackson is the world’s biggest winner in 2009, even when it comes to search engine queries. He topped the internet charts with no competition, and even archenemies Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo agree together on that. Not to risk sounding insensitive, but death was definitely Michael’s best career move.

Aside from the King of Pop (as well as King of Search, apparently), the three search engine giants do not agree on the rest of 2009’s most popular search queries.

How do their lists compare? And what does it say about their users?

Legend:
Red: Pop Culture
Blue: Social Media
