Social Networking

We've all heard of Facebook, Bebo, Twitter, etc and we all know how great they are for keeping in touch with old friends, looking at photos and posting what you thinking...but would you go as far as posting how your feeling at your wedding?

This is exactly what an American software developer did!
During his ceremony Dana Hanna managed to update his facebook status and tweet "Standing at the alter with @ TracyPage where just a second ago, she became my wife! Gotta go, time to kiss my bride." Ridiculous?

Hailed as the 'social utility' this sort of thing is not uncommon and more and more people are posting strange status'- "hopes this Halloween, he doesn't end up with a bag full of restraining orders again." (Just maybe not as bad as posting your status at your wedding!)

The amount of media attention this couple is receiving in America is unbelievable and they are already on Fox Channel and there is something telling me that this was the intention behind the posts, but is it right? I mean your wedding day is supposed to be the most exciting day of your life and would you really want yours to be publisied for some cheap publicity?

Social networking does have its serious side though and some people now are using these websites as tools to help them design art pieces.


Here are some of the examples that I came across:
