Facebook games- I like it on the Sofa, I like it on the kitchen table? Facebook Status

Updated on July 20, 2012

I like it on............?

Every October, millions of woman join together to raise awareness for breast cancer, last October woman everywhere were posting a colour as their status, Male friends kept commenting "what is this colour for?" "why do i keep seeing colours on my friends status?" This was just another breast cancer awareness campaign where woman were posting the colour of the bra they were wearing at the time. This month however you have probably seen status updates that read 'i like it on the kitchen table' or 'i like it on the sofa' and even 'i like it on my desk' these status reports are puzzling men all over, many of them thinking perhaps this is to much personal information haahaa, but their is nothing sexual about theses status updates although one could see why men would think that, it is in fact another breast cancer awareness campaign, woman receive this message in their inbox............ "So you guys remember the game last year about what color bra you were wearing at the moment? For those of you who didn't participate in the game, what happened was that females posted the colour of the bra that they were wearing at that moment in their status on Facebook. Facebook statuses were full of colors and it had males everywhere wondering why.
The purpose was to increase awareness of October Breast Cancer Awareness month. It was a tremendous success and we had men wondering for days what was with the colors and it made it to the news. This year's game has to do with your handbag/purse,we want to know where you put your handbag the moment you get home for example "I like it on the couch", "I like it on the kitchen counter", "I like it on the dresser" well u get the idea.
Just put your answer as your status with nothing more than that and cut n paste this message and forward to all your FB female friends to their inbox. The bra game made it to the news. Let's see how powerful we women really are!!! REMEMBER - DO NOT PUT YOUR ANSWER AS A REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE- PUT IT IN YOUR STATUS!!! PASS THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW."

And so woman are posting where they keep their bag, and whether or not you find this bag game stupid or fun, it has done what it set out to do, as everyone is talking about it, therefore raising awareness.

Do you think the breast cancer awareness status games are a good idea?

      Thanks for your comment caroline i think their are now games going around facebook to keep men guessing which is really taking away the point of the games really. So i agree that they really need to change their game next year.

      I knew the bra color game was for breast cancer awareness, and that made sense. I played the purse game last year--without knowing that it was for breast cancer awareness. Didn't get that "official" inbox message until this year. I played again--but I think the PR powers that be need to change the game next year.

      It's certainly fun... but how does it actually raise breast cancer awareness? All it makes people "aware" of is that us girls are up to something, and then what? "Surprise, it's actually about our purses! Oh by the way, this month is Breast Cancer Awareness month."

      I'm not saying it isn't fun... it's certainly funny. I am just saying, don't try to make it out to be something more important than it is. If you really want to make people aware of breast cancer research, say in your status "This month is breast cancer awareness month... please donate to your local breast cancer charity or research center to help us women fight this cancer."

      Personally, I'm fond of posting links to news articles and science journals on the current state of breast cancer research. THIS is how you really get people to pay attention to the serious issue of breast cancer... and not to where you put your purse. Just my two cents... if you want to actually raise awareness, then do it, don't play around and pretend you're actually doing something helpful. When all you're really doing is confusing men and discussing your fashion choices. And please, please, please donate to breast cancer research. It really is an important issue.

      By the way... I like it on the commode.
