Boobquake Campaign! — Learn Social Media By Example


Super Powere Boobs?

Super Power Boobs?

During Friday prayers, Muslim clerics are required to give sermons, and last week the head honcho of Friday prayer sermon clerics, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, was quoted in Iranian media saying that  “Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.

It’s not like it’s the first time that a religious figure blamed natural disaster on a certain group of people, this is actually quite common. However, in the western side of Indiana, there was a young Purdue senior that had a light bulb flash in her head when she read about this. What if we put that theory to the test ?

What is it about?

Jennifer McCreight a senior at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN decided to put the clerics theory to the test and call for a campaign to women around the world asking them to show off some skin on April 26th and see if this act does really cause a calamity of epic proportions.

I went on a trip to Istanbul recently, and after coming back, I was on Facebook checking some of the pictures that people took of the trip. It was truly exciting to see what each one of them focused on in their pictures and the moments they captured.

This trip would have been a completely different experience if it wasn’t for social networking sites and the internet. So that sparked the idea to track how exactly the internet shaped this trip.

The nature of the internet is filled with a lot of information and seeing it animated and simplified visual is certainly a blessing, since it opens our mind to new ways to see our world. Whether it’s through maps, info-graphs or psychedelic illustrations videos on the web surely added a much needed freshness to information and data on the web.

“I’m With Coco” – Learn Social Media by Example

As organic social media campaigns often are, this campaign became viral quite by accident. When Mike Mitchell, a huge Conan O’Brien fan, tweeted a link to a poster he created in support of Coco as a reaction to the Conan O’Brien/Jay Leno debacle.
