"LIKING OLD LISTS IS NOT STALKING" AWARENESS WEEK ⌛️
Listen up, gang
- •So you know how liking old pictures or statuses on an acquaintance's Facebook is super weird and/or creepy?
- •You know how searching through someone's old tweets suggests that you have way too much time on your hands (and/or are weird and/or creepy)?
- •This is because Facebook and Twitter, by their natures, encourage disposable communication. The tweet about what I had for lunch today, if it ever had any value, definitely expires after about 24 hours.
- •Li.st is not like that!
- •We are a creative community, and our lists are not meant to be disposable. Old lists are just as interesting and valid and vital as new lists. They don't expire.
- •However, social media habits die hard and, despite the nifty addition of the "related lists" thigamajig, it still feels gauche to look through someone's list history.
- •But no more!
- •This week, I encourage all of you (yes, you!) to like and comment on lists that are over 6 months old.
- •Let's revitalize the past lists of yore! Let's restart conversations, jumpstart debates, reopen wounds.
- •Who's with me?
