Quarantine Turned Social Media Into 2006 MySpace All Over Again
This is a random blog post. I’ll admit that. To be honest, Mondays are now are the slowest day of the week for content. Why? No one does anything on the weekend anymore. There are no games to talk about. No one said anything dumb. Mondays are almost worse in quarantine than they were when we just went to work like normal humans. I never hated Mondays, rather, I’m a big Tuesday hate guy. That said, I wanted to let everyone know that we’re now back to 2006 Myspace on social media. It is amazing to see us transition back to things that used to be so popular.
You’re probably wondering what I mean when I say 2006 Myspace. You do not go a day without seeing some sort of list, bingo card, or something of that nature. The ’10 Things People Like that I Don’t Like’ is hot in the Facebook streets right now. I thought about doing a list like that for SnoTapWI to play along but realized there aren’t that many things I dislike that are popular. I don’t like salmon. That’s probably it. This type of list is a pure pull from the Myspace days. Remember how long those Myspace lists used to be? It would take 10 fucking hours to get through one of them. And how you would act all cool about comments if you drink or smoked because you were still in high school.
Before you know it, we’re going to have the top eight friends list if this thing continues on for any longer. You’re going to be tagging friends left and right. People are going to get mad that they’re left off the list of ‘Top eight friends you want to have a Zoom Happy Hour with!’ These things are only going to get worse with this type of thing before we get back to being normal humans in society again.
If Tom from MySpace pops up again, don’t be shocked.
