Facebook Status Off
One of my favorite things to come from social networking isn’t so much seeing how old high school nemeses have aged or e-stalking ex-boyfriends — though that can certainly be entertaining — it’s watching people make virtual fools of themselves in an attempt to garner some attention and perhaps even score a date with that cute friend of a friend they’ve been crushing on from afar. From Twitter updates to Facebook statuses — and endless photo tags, personality quizzes, and wall comments in between — social networks are ripe with endless possibilities for flirting, bragging, and showing off how witty one can be. As we’re all too well aware of, though, these antics are often more embarrassing than charming. The short film above called “Facebook Status Off” illustrates this point hilariously — check it out.
