Supposedly, it’s seven days when we celebrate logging into Facebook and tweeting. And going on Linked-In and MySpace and running Tumblr blogs. All those activities that you do every day anyway. (Except for MySpace, though I did look at someone’s profile yesterday).
Thing is though, do we really need a week for this kind of thing? Do we need to raise awareness of Facebook? Or encourage people to tweet more? Arguably no. This is a bit like having “desk week” where we celebrate the useful function of desks, or like having “phone week” to raise awareness of phones.
Unnecessary in other words.
Maybe, coughs, we support something that really needs supporting – like the newspaper industry. Should we do Mainstream Media week where everyone buys a newspaper? Just a thought.
