Are you ready for it? I warned you all…….. it was coming……….. did you listen and prepare? Did you arrange Google plus accounts and sign up to Toldyah? Or will you be without any form of social media contact in 48 hours?
November 5 approaches……. A slow steady drumbeat as the seconds tick by, bringing us closer to the day Anonymous will take down Facebook. Woo hoo. Get those end of the world parties planned people, for what world is worth living in without Facebook? Will the world even continue to spin without FB supporting it? Perhaps there will be a collective throwing up of arms and the world will implode when we all realise we can’t give our bestie’s latest outfit the thumbs up, or lay abuse on a multinational conglomerate,s first tentative and poorly attempted foray into the harsh world of social commentary.
What happens if the world, by some twist of fate, survives this decimation? What will it be? How will we survive without the 631 connections we barely know? Imagine – having to send an EMAIL with pics attached, *shiver*, so 1990’s. Will life be worth living without Company advertising taking up our news feed?
Will it be the rise of LinkedIn, or will Google Plus enslave us with its clean, circular offering? Will Toldyah suddenly become the world’s choice for computer chat, be snapped up by some .com squillionaire for billions, making me a happy gal as I kick back on my own private island whilst minions cater to my every whim? Will Kim Kardashian offer to marry Facebook to save the day, then tells us all 10 weeks later it was a sham? Or perhaps the principles of probability will win the day, and Anonymous are only tricking, Facebook will remain the uber-lord it is today, and the doom mongers like me will find something else to write about…..
Damn – that’s no fun! Come on Anonymous – Make MY day!
