Living Social: Stories get real at last night’s “Social Network” Slam
Twitter made it cool to be a “follower.” Facebook made “unlike” a verb. Myspace contributed a whole new movement to the history of self-portraiture. Ladies social groups no longer have to meet in person, but can share recipes, knitting tips, and fun cat photos from the comfort of their own homes with the popular online pinboard, Pinterest. And now stalker’s lives are easier than ever before thanks to the location-based social network, Foursquare.
Without a doubt, social media is transforming the world.
At last night’s StorySlam, ten audience storytellers told of the inspiring, hilarious, and complex ways that social media has affected their lives. The theme was “Social Network.”
Interestingly, two reoccurring themes were unexpected encounters with famous people and scabies.
