The poster below appeals to social networkers' self-mockery ;-)
By kalokwong1 - on 9GAG.com, a fun sharing community
Let's decode the reasons why the author of the poster has chosen each explanation : can you answer the following questions ?
Twitter : "I'm eating bacon"
How long are the messages displayed on Twitter ? So, why is the verb "eat" present continuous ?
Fbook : "I like bacon"
... hmmm. Nah, I won't help you ! The answer's far too easy...
LinkedIn : "I have skills including eating bacon"
If you don't know this network, check what linkedin is... and you'll get the answer ! The key-word is "skills".
Foursquare : "This is where I eat bacon"
Which is the key-word ? 1st clue : this one helps to find places - 2nd clue : check it here !
YouTube : "Watch me eat my bacon"
... you know the answer-key comes with the word "watch", don't you ?
. . . ?? : "Here's a vintage photo of my bacon"
Well, I give up : it's surely a photography social media, but I couldn't find what this logo corresponds to : if you can find the social
media it represents, please tell me !
⇒ I knew you'd find it (1) : the logo shows Instagram's camera.
Pinterest : "Here's a recipe with bacon"
Why not explain what ' Pinterest' is ?
Google+ : "I work for Google and eat bacon"
How does Google work -I mean how does it earn money ? As a result... why does the poster tell that you work for Google whenever you use it on the web pages you surf ?
Last.fm : "I'm listening to music about bacon"
Well, both "fm" and "listening to music" are clues to a proper answer : what can you do on this website ? Who owns last.fm ? You'll find the answer here.
Here you are : hope you've learnt a bit more on a few Internet social media networks and had fun :)
