Everyone has that moment when they say something stupid online and then go to delete it and 5 “friends” have already liked, commented and shared it with 7,000 other people. I think it’s important to go over various things that are better off said in the privacy of our own homes, but not while we are late-night web-surfing.
“Just bought the ring. Four more days.”
“Here’s a photo of my Starbucks drink.” (If this is you, I hate you.)
Anything serious about your relationship. (The more it’s on Facebook, the worse it probably is in real life. Overcompensation is a bitch.)
“John so-and-so just checked in at TGI Fridays at Destiny USA.” Why do you want everyone to know that? So we can stop by and pay our respects like you’re the Godfather or something?
(Anything tweeted from 9 to 5. Because that really looks good and everyone can see it.)
Speling errors. Because everybody can see how stupid you are. (Yeah, I did that on purpose.)
Everything you say makes you look nerdy. Because G+ is for nerds.
“I hate my job.”
Anything while you’re drinking. (Friends don’t let friends use smartphones when drunk.)
Why do you want the pictures of your kids getting re-pinned across the galaxy? Are you nuts?
Every Social Network
Every selfie ever. Have you ever seen a good one?
Here is my lunch, and dinner, and breakfast. And my snack. Off to Starbucks. Oap! Just got run over by a truck that Joe Cunningham was driving.
Really Important Things Happening in Tech
A.k.a. Thinking Up a Better Title for This
- Windows gives birth to “Cortana” – a voice activated copy cat of Siri and Google Voice (“Can we give her a name please?”) and is now standard on all brand made phones.
- T-Mobile stops selling Blackberries. “Hey the turn of the millennium called; they want their phone back.” Sources say they are looking into strawberries and perhaps bananas to roll out early in the third quarter.
- Google is reportedly testing a snooze button for Gmail. This is what the world needs.
- The gamer world pranks gamers with “April Fool’s Day” announcements that excite fans with false hope. You really have to be a gamer to get these.
- Some lesser banks report hackers raising ATM withdrawl limits. Because walking into the bank to get their money was much too difficult to do. Raising the amount of money in their bank accounts apparently didn’t occur to them.
