10 Questions about Social Media and Justin Bieber: Seriously?!

Updated on August 10, 2012

Social Media

Oh social media, I know you so well!

We spend many hours together each day and you bring me both Facebook friends and Twitter buddies. Do you mind if I take you away from the buzz of your world for a few minutes to ask you a few questions?

Let Me Ask You A Few Questions

10 Questions about Social Media

1. If you don't hear the "LOL" in person, does it still happen?

2. Why is it called "social media" when a person sends a Tweet while sitting alone at a computer?

3. Why is it that the Facebook colors are blue when the network has so many users? Shouldn't the social media network be happy instead of blue? (Why yes, you can groan here!)

Facebook - Questions To Ask!

Oh Facebook, why are you so blue?

4. Is a blog a social media tool?

5. Why does Justin Bieber get over 4,000 retweets off the Tweet "less than #3HOURS until #BIEBERonNBC...", yet I only get three retweets off an article I spent an hour writing?

6. If "The medium is the message", what message is being made when Kim Kardashian shares her post on Google+ that is titled, "Baby Seahorses Are the Cutest!"

Kim Kardashian

I really do like seahorses!

7. Why is "Unfollowing" a person on an online network taken so personally by that person?

8. If SEO is peanut butter and raspberry jam is the content, what is social media?

9. Why does "Viral" mean something has become popular very quickly yet also refers to something caused by a virus?

10. Hey Justin Bieber: Can I get a retweet?

Should I Comment On Facebook Or On Twitter?

So many questions!

Not sure about question is close to the tree falling in the woods question. I just checked Bieber twitter account still no retweet for you. Voted up and very funny.

      So true--it's not social at all--it's isolationist.

      And yes--the dislike button T-shirt--we've got a group on FB for 'who wants a 'dislike' button--feel free to join!
