@halalalalala posted a link to a really cool infographic today. But before you can see it, I want you to try something.
First, think back to your high school days (I really miss my ASD days!) and pick the top 3 traits that best characterize you from the list below:
- A/V Nerd
- Art Kid
- Band Geek
- Class President
- Compulsive Documenter
- English Geek
- Ex-Best Friend
- Exchange Student
- Gossip Girl
- Paper Bag Lunch Kid
- Teacher’s Pet
For example, I was (and some of you might disagree with me): 1. Nerd, 2. Debater, 3. Gossip Girl/Teacher’s Pet
Second, out of the following list of Social Media websites, pick the 3 you use the most:
- Live Journal
- Live Journal
For me that would be: 1. Twitter, 2. Wikipedia, 3. Google
Now take a look at this infographic from Flowtown:
Isn’t this cool? I love this infographic and I think it’s going to make a perfect birthday present for some of the Social Media geeks I know.
According to my high school traits, this tells me that I must be spending most of my time on Wikipedia (check), Twitter (check), Yelp (unfortunately not available in the UAE), and Quora (on the to-do list). I’m not quite sure I agree with the characterisation of “Prep” for Google but that might be because Google has evolved beyond being just a Social Media service. I have decided to make more of an effort to use Quora actively and this is what I asked about Yelp a few months back (are you guys listening?):
I’m also slightly worried that WordPress is equivalent to an English Geek. I enjoyed English in high school but I really wouldn’t classify myself as an English Geek. So I really hope my blogging career isn’t going to be short-lived as a result.
I must admit that I haven’t tried all these types of Social Media and as a result, I have increased respect for the Social Media geeks.
Have you tried all these forms of Social Media? How did you match up? Share you results!
