Friday Fun: Facebook and Twitter IRL
What we do online is normal to us, when we are online. Take our online activities, sayings, and behavior and move that to every day non-online life and all of a sudden showing your marital status to people and following them becomes very weird very fast.
So if you want a good laugh this Friday check out ENO’s viral YouTube video intended to promote Nico Muhly’s opera Two Boys. The viral video makes fun of how what we do on Facebook and Twitter and is quite funny. (It also has nothing to do with the very dark opera it is trying to promote.)
If you can’t access YouTube you might try and watch it at the Two Boys Opera website just click on “Can I Be Your Friend” and enjoy. The other link the trailer for the opera which looks interesting, but it is very dark and not what I would classify as Friday Fun.
If you enjoy ENO’s viral video then you will also like this oldie but goodie video, Facebook in Reality.
