CNET Asia Community Blog Entry – Geekamania–solution to social networking?


My new entry over at CNET Asia Community Blog is up. This week’s entry, “Geekamania–solution to social networking?”. Click here for the full read.

Extracts from the article……

“When I scrolled down the list of the so-called awarding-winning services that Geekamania provides, I just can’t stop wondering who would have come up with a such a whacky idea. Its services include:

  • Design, setup and maintenance of personalized profile pages on all the popular Web 2.0 “social-networking” sites, including Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Tumblr, Flickr, and more.
  • Daily updates to your pages with smart, “hip” musings and status quotes, so you can focus on your real life, like paying bills, enjoying movies, playing with the kids, drinking heavily at work, and not having sex.
  • You give us all your personal information–your darkest secrets, weirdest fantasies, frequent medications, favorite foods, bitterest resentments, embarrassing musical tastes, sexual hangups, and so on–and we do the rest. No logging in, no passwords to remember, and best of all, no actual personality to worry about. Don’t have a personality? No problem. We can make one up for you.
  • Monthly reports of all account activity–funny messages, revealing pictures, and so on–printed out and mailed straight to your home via the trusty ol’ post office, because you hate your damn computer and can’t remember your AOL login and don’t even get you started on those f__king cell phones.
  • Hopeful Hookup Detection–Our proprietary algorithm scans all your incoming messages for suggestive keywords and flirty behavior, on the remote chance that you might actually get laid some time in the near future, but of course, you probably won’t because you’re too terrified to followup and/or appear naked in front of another human.
  • Ex-Lover SlutMaker–A special addon service where we casually befriend your ex-lover or spouse, and then start dropping nasty hints and posting ugly rumors about what a true bastard/bitch he/she really is, not to mention his/her secret obsession with bestiality and German fetish porn.
  • And so on…”
