Google Search Says “Facebook IS…”

Have you ever been so bored that you start searching random shit on Google? Please don’t say no, cause we both know that you have and that you just don’t wanna’ fess up! And if you really, truly, haven’t – then…I still don’t believe you!

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while since I actually did this a few weeks ago (damn, looks like I’ve been bored a few times recently), but as you can see, I only got around to writing about it now.

I’m almost embarrassed to admit how jaded and energy-less I was yesterday – yes, on a Saturday! I had absolutely no patience for going out or doing real work – you know, the kind that pays. So instead, I declared it to be “couch potato day with a little blogging on the side!” As for the blogging part of my day – I started typing in the names of a few Social Media networks on Google followed by the word “IS” and a space to see what comes up in the drop down list before hitting the search button. And interestingly enough this is what I got!

Huh, I guess my Saturday wasn’t completely useless after all ;)!

Enjoy…and as usual, feel free to voice your opinion in the comments.

    Well the only real issue I have with Facebook is that they can do with my images whatever they want. It is theirs now. Kinda sucks.

      Hey Gerald

      Great to see you here Mr. G Man – thanks for dropping by ;). I’m thrilled that you found this post so attractive – Uhhh, I mean entertaining lol.

      I gotta tell ya – I had fun writing it but I was laughing even harder at all the negativity I was seeing in the results. Pretty interesting.

      I’m actually planning a follow-up (already started) of this post – very, very soon ;). Always nice to see how things may have changed over the last few months.

      Thanks a lot for taking the time to share your awesome thoughts. I look forward to seeing you around these parts more often.

      Happy Holidays

    Wow! You just made my day with that comment. Really, thank you :)!

    I love the fact that you like my witty style :-). Needless to say that I’m an avid reader of your blog. There’s just so much to learn from you – and I do so every time I read one of your insightful posts. I think I gave you a really dorky name in an old comment here but I am gonna’ take my chances again and use it again: Ana the “Tzar(ina) of SEO!” lol

    I would love to guest post for you – thank you for the invite. I just need to make sure I have something worthy of Traffic Generation Cafe before I send anything your way. I haven’t written too much on traffic generation but I’ll give it a go and do my best to add that touch of wit and umph to it lol!

    Glad you loved this post. I really had fun with it. I was just really surprised with the results – as I’m sure many were. I don’t think there’s one positive thing on there. Pretty crazy!

    Thanks again for stopping by and taking the time to leave your very kind and encouraging comment. Very much appreciated indeed.

    Have a great Sunday. Talk to ya later.

    Ingrid, I am in love with this post!

    It never actually occurred to me to Google all that, but I am glad you did – and gave me a good laugh.

    I must confess I love you style and admire your Twitter presence; way to build your brand!

    How about a guest post, Ingrid?

    I think your wit will fit quite nicely with my Traffic Generation Cafe! :)
