Social Media Agony Aunt Search Terms Part 1: Social Media Addiction

Social Media and the London Olympics

This isn’t an analysis of the relationship between The Internet and The Games, just an opportunity to share some comedy gold I’ve stumbled across that links London 2012 and various social networks. You know, in case people want to take time out from slapping down Boris and observing how crowded the city is on Facebook and Twitter.

First up, the lowdown on the digital strategy* for the Games from BBC2’s Twenty Twelve (from a brand manager who is actually scarily similar to me. Excluding the attachment to MySpace. Ok including the attachment to MySpace. Whatever):

And secondly, someone from the Daily Mail dwelling on Twitter and the Games here.

NB: Only one of these is actually supposed to be funny.

ENJOY! And happy #London2012 everyone!
