A Very April Fool’s Day Thanks to Social Media
Thanks to social media, I successfully pulled my first April Fool’s Day Joke! Despite me posting about April Fool’s Day all day, I still got some of you!
Being a Vegetarian /aspiring Vegan is an extremely important part of my life. A meat free diet provides me with more mental clarity, physical energy and overall a feeling of joy as I know my choice is contributing to a more sustainable environment. Based on my passion for this lifestyle, I couldn’t stand to have people believe me any longer, hence this blog post comes just slightly an hour after my joke to officially say APRIL FOOL’S!
Special Thanks To:
1. Foursquare’s faulty location based check in system for allowing me to check into Butcher Shop Steak House while I was actually at home.
2. My Twitter followers who I fooled for creating even more buzz by tweeting me back with updates confirming my vegetarianism begone status!
3. My Facebook friend’s who I fooled for commenting and liking my status, causing their activity on my wall to show up on their own stream. This allowed ever more people to see my joke. (I did get caught in the end).
All joke’s aside, this post demonstrates the power of Social Media and how quickly information goes viral. If you have engaged followers who pay attention and participate in your network, it will take your business to the next level. I’ll conclude with one of my favorite articles: 57 Health Benefits of Going Vegan. This is a powerful read for everyone, especially those uninformed on health benefits of a meat free diet. Once again, HAPPY APRIL FOOL’S Day. Feel free to share some of your favorite jokes in my comments below.
