The Perfect Social Media Fanatic Gift Guide

Do you feel the urge to spread the social media love in the analog meatland? Do you feel that some people need some more social media in their life? Or perhaps you feel that everyone will be put on the righteous path of social media fanaticism given the right kind of introduction or tool?

Regardless of the reason you convince yourself with, one thing should be clear in your head: A person with no friends or followers should not even exist, his existential strife should just tear him apart and hence your existence and its importance is tied to the percentage of the world population that get to hear about what you had for lunch. So if baiting others with a gift is the only way to get those privacy nuts, Amish or even toddlers to join social media then so be it!

Twitter Bear and the Facebook Penguin

With this toy, they will be following you religiously in no time. On the other hand if your target is to add more Facebook friends then Pingo the Facebook Penguin is the right gift for you, a tomodashi for the social media kids. Though its a tad bit pricey at $150.
