I like it on...

If you've logged onto Facebook lately (and really, who hasn't?), chances are you've seen that your friends "like it on the ______" - fill in the blank with your choice of kitchen counter, washing machine, etc. This viral trend is raising awareness for breast cancer by letting women update where they like to rest their purses, and is doing a damn good job at that.

I saw PB & Jenny 's status update that she likes it on her yoga mat. My purse is currently on the floor, if that says anything about me.

These digital advertising strategies remind me why I am consistently impressed with the power of social media: By taking an idea (breast cancer awareness) and linking it to a social media outlet (in this case, Facebook), users become part of an interactive experience. Who wouldn't rather take part in seeing where their friends like to... rest their purses, and in return be prompted to get mammograms or promote their wives, girlfriends, sisters to from there on out? The power social media has to unite the individuals behind the computer screen into a community is mind-boggling.

After the Marie Claire debacle earlier this week (haven't heard of it yet?), I wanted to craft a post that would use the powers of social networking to promote other bloggers' hard work and support our community by posting links to sites I've loved lately.

Hope you enjoy:

  • Flashbacks from Tropical Eats - brought me back to younger years when I didn't care if I had cake on my face. I think my parents must have skipped over the "food on face, wipe with napkin" lesson, because I'm still working hard to reverse that damage;).
