Format Fatigue

For many of us in the older gen y and all the more established market savvy folks – we have experienced more than a decade of web explosion. Regardless of whether this latest series of social web innovations is a bubble or not – there are still alot of new things even from established players. Google+ is the latest, and for some of us this will be our 5th social network, and at least the third simultaneously. It begins to be a little exhausting. So i thought it would be fun to vent a little frustration in the form of a parody of the super early adopter… here goes. If you want to come up with a beat for this rap and post it – go for it!

Remember back when you thought, facebook it was just a fad
you stayed and played it oldschool, AIM chatting with your mom and dad
Well NOT me I’m on every trend, follow it till the end
got more power then the mobsters – the earliest adopter

2000s kid has been a boom! i spend the decade in my room!
signing up for all the sites, tweeting, posting all my life

I’m the social web king –
one tweet start the arab spring
follow me on the latest thing

You see i tweet, blog, digg, 15k firends on facebook
Off the wall i got the likes, retweets, clickthroughs and mad looks
