A sign of the times………..

Social Media is big business these days.  It is a platform that reaches people whilst they work, play, even sleep!  No other medium has ever had such exposure!  We tweet the brekkie menu, upload pics of the slammin’ night out as we eat the 3am manky kebab (and then try desperately to remove them the next morning before the wrong person sees them).  We status update the latest family argument, and we send birthday messages rather than phone. And it seems we tweet our impending doom prior to it arriving – truly a sign of our times isn’t  it:


Sounds like I am complaining huh?  But I am not.  I use FB, Twitter and Google + everyday.  Many times a day.  I have avoided getting a Smart Phone cos I KNOW what will happen then!  But that day is coming very soon, I need one for the business. Can you hear the slow drum beat rolling me towards my doom…

(And BTW – HTC – if you are reading – I would LOVE a Sensation…..pleaseeee, even though it does seem to mean I am moving to Telstra for it!)

On the upside, I now speak with my UK and Dutch cousins on a frequent basis, and have shared a lot of family history that would otherwise have been lost.  And I see pics and updates about friends interstate in real-time, as do they of my family. Whether they want to or not hehehe.

And then there are the other uses – commercial gain from entertaining the masses.  Which is where Toldyah is about to strike!  But more on that later.  I have been trolling the ethers for funny commentaries on Social Media and thought I would share them to lighten the day.

Richard Branson uses Twitter to update his good deeds – and make some political statements – I love him for putting himself out there – stay true Sir Richard!

And then there are those funny status updates…….. there is always a friend like Mr Red isn’t there…….you just pray it aint YOU!

And some other tweets and FB status offerings: The Bosha one is my fave – please turn up this Saturday at my place with paintbrushes!

____ People who claim to “play music by ear” always use their hands. (donni)
____ is organizing a flash mob at my place, Thursday 3pm. Bring lawnmowers. (TheBosha)
____ Some days I ask, “What would Chewbacca do?” And the answer is always, “Make that gargly roaring sound.” So that’s what I do. (RexHuppke)
____ I’d like to learn one of those clicking languages from Africa because I get the feeling my knees are trying to tell me something. (plemur)

____ Sometimes I like to go to the hardware store and run around with a screwdriver shouting, “Ladies and gentlemen, this is not a drill!” (girlweena)
____ The Internet makes things so convenient. Before it existed, if you wanted to order a DVD online, you had to invent the Internet. (StephenAtHome)
____ After intensive research I have determined that there is no type of juice that a double shot of vodka doesn’t improve. (navanax)
____ That’s me in the corner. That’s me with my i-Phone, losing my reception. (depreciated)

Well, enough mucking around – time to do some work – catch yah

I, Toldyah.

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?

I, Toldyah

I want to give you the clap!

What?  Why would I do that?  Of course, I am assuming you are old enough to know what the clap is………check HERE if you don’t LOL.

No, it’s applause I mean.  A big, rowdy acclamation that you guys are the BEST!

HUGS FOR EVERYONE

Pop open the champers, drop the net of balloons and streamers.
