If Social Networking Sites Were College Students

Check out this great post over on Aaron Hoos blog on if social networking sites were college students. In a word, it’s awesome.

  • Classmates.com: the self-absorbed senior who’s been attending college for 8 years to get a 4 year degree
  • MySpace: once the most popular student in school … put on some weight and sold out to “the man”
  • Facebook: the great looking guy that has it all … his popularity on the rise … but in ten years … he’ll feel empty inside
  • Orkut: doesn’t speak English … and he’s not good enough to play the exotic angle to get dates
  • Bebo: the off-campus student no one has heard of
  • LinkedIn: he’s mostly talk and optimistic dreams but he has to work twice as hard to get the same marks as everyone else
  • Xing: he’s a little awkward around the girls and he sometimes forgets to wear matching socks
  • Plaxo: he talks a big, big game but he didn’t make the football team and he’s not on the dean’s list
