Facebook is a clocksucker

Facebook is a big black hole where time goes to die. Hop on for a sec and, before you know it, three hours have passed!

My very funny and talented friend, and occasional client, Elayne Boosler has taken her Facebook obsession to the next level, though. She's recorded a fab new song that captures the whole Facebook phenomenon. Done in fast-moving rap-style, I love how she's included the lyrics in the video via Facebook status updates.

Check it out below and, if you enjoy it, be sure to "like" Elayne on Facebook for more good stuff!

  3. Thanks so much Amber! You are the reason it happened, mentoring me in social media and teaching me everything. I blame you lol! You should be working 24/7 with your incredible skills. Companies should be fighting over you, I hope they are.

  5. Ok, I will try to stay on point here..........that was great and very creative. Fortunately I haven't let FB suck(er) me in too deep. Yes I have an acct and 700+ friends but still probably wouldn't be able to fill a phone booth for my funeral.

    But name your poison; trying to figure Twitter out and at least get to a functional level has taken some time. It also takes time daily to engage and all the other stuff that goes with it.

    Internet is evil; it's turning us into an out-of-shape, non-personal society. I didn't say social, but personal. I say this facetiously, but it has changed the dynamics of 'engagement'.

    How'd I do?

    You did just fine, Mr. Silly Pants...

  8. Elayne was using that phrase on her FB bio for years, so it was only fitting that she wrote a song with the same name.

    Thanks for listening, Eugene!
