My name is Toldyah & I’m an addict…..
Forgive me Facebook, for I have sinned, it has been 6 hours since my last status update. I am a bad girl.
Twitter, Twitter, wherefore art thou? I havent commented on my daily activities since this morning.
Send me a check box, right now, for I havent done a check-in this weekend.
OMG….. I am a social media junkie.
I need my fix, and nothing else will do. TV – pfffffffft. Get thee behind me! A book, well, that’s nice entertainment and all, but nothing, NOTHING, is like the stirring roller coaster that is social media. So many experiences and emotions: that warmth spreading through the veins from throwing a sheep, that hit of ecstasy from being the wittiest comment on a friend’s photo or the soul-deep satisfaction of being Mayor.
The warning signs were there of course. Elbowing old ladies away from the door of the train in an effort to get home quicker to do the latest Facebook poll. Causing mass panic by triggering the evacuation alarm at work so I can run out with my smart phone and check Richard Branson‘s latest Twitter effort. Making spurious claims of food poisoning after a visit to a particular food establishment so I would be the only person checking in – and making me Mayor. It’s all harmless fun isn’t it…….ummmm, isn’t it?
I am relieved to know I am not the only one! Korea – home of the tasty flaming barbecue and the most insane online gamers in the world – is very concerned. Now – to paint the picture – Korea has reality tv unlike the rest of us – theirs is based on watching online gamers compete against one another. Ratings are massive, people having knocked off ticket holders just to be in the audience. In those hours they are not gaming or watching gaming, they spend their time on social media commenting about gaming, oh and Justin Bieber of course. They are seriously hooked on the invisible waves connecting our world. Korean parents, when not busy themselves slaying mythical creatures, are worried about their kids. Gamer’s thumb, laptop eye, and the ever-present oops forgot to do my homework flu are so threatening to the national interest that clinics are being set up.
This is in fact, excellent news. Toldyah needs these addicts! Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Toldyah will give them fun and excitement, shopping deals and most of all, STARDOM! So come on over, let me introduce you to a new high.
Come join Make Me Famous on Facebook, and feel that exhilarating RUSH, the pumping of your blood, the warmth of the spotlight.
What are you waiting for?
