This is one of my most favorite weeks of the year: Thanksgiving Week. Where I have to buy bigger size pants, and enjoy all the glorious food, friends, football, family and spirits I can handle. By Sunday, I will need a major trip to the yoga studio to sweat out all that stuffing and booze. And with Thanksgiving, we celebrate all of our thankfulness. Yes, I am thankful for a lot of things (family, health, etc.), but let’s talk about what I’m thankful for in social media.
The “Block and report spam” feature on Tweetdeck
Because let’s face it, I get more tweets in Portuguese than any English speaking person should
The “Hide this post” option on Facebook
Because I don’t care what your horoscope for the day is, or that you need help building a Jackalope Lodge in FrontierVille. By the way, WTF is FrontierVille?
The “ignore” button on Foursquare
Because I really don’t want some creeper from a city I’ve never heard of with 5,000 friends and badges knowing where I am
The spam filter on WordPress.com
Because as much as I appreciate a comment from “Colon Cleanse,” I’m pretty sure I don’t want you on here
OK, we are seeing a pattern here. What else am I thankful for?
- People that have their photos set for “friends of friends” on Facebook. Hello, 140 new photos! Don’t mind if I do
- Tweeting a question/thought on Twitter and having a plethora of responses (thanks, guys!)
- Checking into a bar on Foursquare and getting a free drink just for doing so
- YouTube videos of anything my heart desires – old TV shows from the 80s, American Idol performances from 2004, Glee songs, my new haircut…
- The wonderful people who read my blog and comment on it…all 3 of you 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving! May you have many tweets, lots of turkey, and little spammers this holiday season.
