A Social Media Love Affair

10 Mar

Or a love/hate relationship to be more accurate.

You see, I can’t quite decide whether I really like and embrace Social Media or whether I want to completely banish all SM applications from my life and go back to a simpler life.

As I have been busy designing “the Social Media Awards Beirut”, I got inspired to write a small ‘contemporary poem’ (?).

The-Social-Media-Awards-Design

Poke me

Write on my wall

Confide in me, tell me how you feel

O-v-e-r-s-h-a-r-e the details

Fill my newsfeed with your presence

kylie-confide-in-me

I have let my Firewall down for you

And my browser saved all your Cookies

To get you in my reach

So that you’re almost real

Follow me back, won’t you

I meant it when I “liked” that photo of yours

You look so beautiful on those Instagram shots

Your artsy views on things got me fantasizing

And your Pinterest Boards merge perfectly with mine

Lust

I saw you were downtown on Foursquare

I hope you don’t mind that I planned a trip there too

So I can see you from afar

Wearing that DIY bracelet you “Stumbled Upon”

You look even better than On-screen

In that familiar outfit,

And those shoes you just got yesterday.

You’re like a YouTube video coming to life

And I can’t but stand there

Wondering how real you are,

Holding a pack of your favorite candy

As I see someone step into the photo with you.

He holds your hand, smiling and romantic

Just like that photo you blogged on tumblr last night.

It all happened so suddenly, I’m puzzled.

I thought that status you wrote was meant for me

And our long chats meant something.

You cheated but you will never know

I killed you but it will never show

Because you’re made of pixels

And honey pixels can’t grow.

How to get started on Pinterest

13 Nov

Pinterest is a relatively new Web tool that started in 2010, to become a Top social media platform today.

Pinterest is a virtual Pin-Board, where you get to pin images/videos/audio from around the web to create as many mood-boards as you want: it also serve as a Bookmark platform, since you can access the original link you ‘pinned’ from by clicking on it.

So How to get started on Pinterest?

Whatever browser you are using, first thing you need to do (after creating an account, obviously) is download the “Pin it” Button, as per the below snapshot/indications: Hover over About/Click “Pin it Button”/Make sure your Bookmarks bar is showing/Drag and drop the button to the bookmarks bar/ That’s it!

Easy Breezy

If that wasn’t informative enough, watch those video tutorials:

For Safari

For Google Chrome:

For Mozilla Firefox:

For Internet Explorer:

Really? Who uses that anymore?

So now you are ready to pin: While viewing your favourite websites, blogs, tumblrs, all you have to do is click the Pin it Magical button, and it will transform all the data in the website to become “Pinnable”!

Now it’s up to you to chose the pins that represent you/your image/your business the MOST.

You can also “Repin” things other people are pinning, and start following people who have similar tastes and interests. It’s a very generous tool, because it encourages people to share the best of their inspirations with other people without any constrictions and to be honest about their inspirations; a haven for copycats!

I know so many of those bitches

NEW FEATURE: You can now have a SECRET BOARD. YES! For your more adult pins, or if you’re in the closet and want to extend your stay, or if you’re an idea stealer but want to take all the credit then go ahead and create a secret board, where no one can see your pins.

On your marks.

READY?

Start Pinning!

In the name of Fruitful procrastination…Start designing your dream home and planning the wedding you will never have!
