Status Hacked

I trust my friends but I would never leave my iPhone unattended with them. That’s the best way to get status hacked. Status hacked is when somebody updates your status with something that makes you look foolish. It’s the social media equivalent of a Kick Me sign on your back. I once status hacked one of my managers. He left his phone out, so I picked it up, logged into his Facebook account, and updated his status to say, “I hate these damn hemorrhoids, I just want to ride my bike again!” It’s a reference to The Simpsons, but he didn’t know that and he wasn’t too happy with me. I almost got fired. It was worth it. All his Facebook contacts thought he had hemorrhoids. Hilarious.

Status hacking is a dangerous game. If you do it somebody, you should expect them to reciprocate. Retaliation is expected, and you deserve it. Remember that they are going to try to one-up you and post something even more embarrassing. Choose your opponent wisely. The best place to be in the middle of a status hack war is on the sidelines. It’s important to like and comment in order to ensure that the hacked status shows up in as many newsfeeds as possible and make that shit go viral.

Snapchat

Snapchat is a social media app. It’s the trendy thing that all the cool kids are doing right now. The premise of Snapchat is simple. You take pictures and videos and share them with friends and followers. The hook is that the videos and pictures can only be viewed briefly before they disappear. It’s great for sexting, but you can also use it as a personal video journal of sorts. You can share a snippet of a concert or sunset with friends. You can show everybody that weird guy at the grocery store instead of merely describing him later on. I got Snapchat a couple of months ago and I use it a couple of times a day on average. Mostly I’m watching whatever my friends send me, but I’ve been known to do a few Snaps when I’m drunk or bored (or both). I mostly take selfies with something weird in the background, like a toilet bowl or a coworker eating lunch. The most important thing about Snapchat is being aware that it will notify the other person if you take a screen shot of something they sent you. Remember that when you’re sending pictures of your cooter out, ladies.
