There is a social media site (like Facebook or Myspace) for virtually anything you can imagine. After a recent conversation with a friend, I decided to test this premise Morgan Spurlock style. For the next 30 days, I will explore the impact of living the social media dream.
To make this more than just another inane online stunt, I will be raising money for my kids' elementary school through the Brackett Elementary School PTO in Arlington MA. This money will support a wide range of events and cultural enrichment programs. I am personally pledging $1 for every registration and hope that you can support my cause (no donation is too small).
Here are my rules of engagement:
1. Sign up for as many social media sites as possible (the stranger, the better)
2. Register for each as Tangyslice, a middle aged man desperately seeking social media coolness.
3. Solicit site suggestions from friends and colleagues. I can be reached at fmdays [at] tangyslice dot com (or @tangyslice if you prefer Twitter) if you have any suggestions.
3. Blog frequently about the experience. You can follow my progress on my blog at http://www.tangyslice.com.
My goal is 100 sites in 30 days. Many thanks for your support and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
