A Mustard Minute: 22 May 2015
Welcome back y’all, it’s Friday again and as we wind up another busy week it’s time to look back at all that’s happened in the social sphere over the past 7 days with another edition of the Mustard Minute.
Everyday I’m Facebooking
Sensis has released their latest study on the way Australians use social media. On average we spend just over 8 hours per day on Facebook – that’s a full workday, so I guess we’re all kinda working two jobs. Nearly half of us admitted that Facebook is the last thing we do before bed. It’s a hard life.
Somebody call the police
In dark and confusing times, sometimes we need heroes to stand up. Australia, we have found those heroes. This week, Queensland Police took to social media to make a stand against public enemy #1: Nickleback. Be on the lookout guys.
World Wide Flag
Have you ever wondered what a flag for Earth should look like? Well wonder no more! Oskar Pernefeldt from the Beckmans College of Design has created one. The result? A Vitruvian man meets Olympic rings number. Nice!
Beware the selfie
Pizza Hut has gone beyond the call of duty in an important public service announcement warning selfie enthusiasts of the dangers of the selfie stick.Worrying times guys. Here’s hoping that selfie superstars manage to overcome this difficult hurdle.
In further selfie-related news emoji’s are set to go full inception with the selfie emoji included in an update for phones released in 2016. The update will feature 38 new animated emotions for important things like bacon, clinking glasses and face with a cowboy hat.
Teeny Tiny TVs
L.G has waged a battle of the bulge on current TV sizes this week, unveiling a 55” inch TV that weighs just 1.9 kilos. It’s so light that it can be held to the wall be magnets. What will they think of next? TV for ants?
