Generation Disruption


FOMO or “fear of missing out”,

Is the new form of social anxiety.

Cruising the Social Media highway,

With our compulsive cell checking.


Am I liked, have I new followers?

We constantly check our status.

Our need for frequent reassurance,

This irrational tapping obsession.


Engaged in our connected digital era,

In reality we miss out on the present.

Hooked up to multiple screens,

We drown in this immersive experience.


In this tangled web of technology,

There really is no social balance.

This is the future imperfect,

Feeling anxious, irritated & inadequate.


We navigate the crowded digital freeway,

Embracing layers of social networks.

Earning social capital with digital assets,

Improving our social media ranking.


We just can’t be alone anymore,

In this always connected world.

Intense engagement and connection,

Blending social stalking with peer reviews.


Checking our cells while driving,

An insatiable need for digital connection,

More important than our own lives,

Introspection impossible by  rapid response.

We are Generation Disruption.

“The Social Media as ROCKSTARS Awards”….and the winner is……..


AND the Social Media as ROCKSTARS winner of the year IS …..

** drumroll **

OFCOURSE I knew you’d guessed it…. That’s right “Snapchat” – twerking away as no other than Rockstar Miley Cyrus!!

CONGRATS to the youngest upstart of Social Media, a clear winner with teens. Snapchat stuck her tongue out in defiance and gave the finger to all the valley moguls seeking to buy her. Respect girl! This independent lady with youth on her side knows how to attract attention – she’s snappy, she exposes all AND she knows exactly what she wants! The Social Media star to watch in 2014 …Go Snapchat & no better appointed Rockstar award! That was your Oscar ROCKSTAR moment.

Now unless you live on another planet ( No I am NOT talking about my real family) you will ofcourse know that it’s the time of the year to SHOW OFF & last night I schmoozed with the elite of the computer industry and online communities – the so called “Digiterati”  (Get it…Digital + Karate.) putting it all out  there on the red carpet for the latest silicon breasted awards  – “Social media stars as Rockstars!!” *  The most connected ironic iconic awards of 2014…& so….February is so the new December for Awards.

Social Media veteran Facebook (FB) – who was still celebrating his mega ten year birthday in this flash in the pan business. FB took the Social Media Rockstar Award as Jumping Jack Flash. Believe me you’ve got to hand it to this old Social Media rocker – although he’s looking a bit ropy and wrinkly around the edges and let’s not mince words here, frankly showing his age – FB still attracts the ladies – admittedly desperately lonely middle-aged women who just want to be liked. (Ouch I know! ….hey am paid to spill it as it is!)

FB’s younger “adopted” sister Instagram, OOH la la!  Well let’s just say, she sure has a lot of front! She won the award as best Rockstar Katy Perry.  Another super award cos this Instagram star girl was born to pose for any camera AND she kissed a few girls at last night’s performance and sure seemed to like it.  Naughty but my kinda gal. BFF.

Looking right back atcha bitch girl was the other Social Media Star, Pinterest. At first she thought she hadn’t won but proudly took the Rockstar award as no other than Taylor Swift. This sweet girl oozes style swiftly pinning and planning everyone’s life as if she’s living in one big continuous high school project and she’s in charge. (Yawn a bit as I bore myself. As I said, Sweet girl really!)

Twitter won the most surprising award of the night as Rockstar Boy George. (Yeah …me TOO!!) He chirped on most of the night in short often incoherent bursts. The rumours circulating were that Twitter has been in recovery mode for a while. Say No more. A bit of a karma chameleon me thinks!! (Oh just look it up!)

Google + ….she looked…well one word really, a jaw dropping WOW! As you all know she’s the daughter of big shot Google  ( aka The Don) and he’s gonna do everything in his power to make the world just love his little girl. Google + practically grabbed the Rockstar award as the bootylicious Boyance.  Looking REAL good girl and let’s face it, her daddy’s rich and she’s younger & better looking that Facebook and a lot better connected. Crystal ball time.

Finally Linkedin, the other older Social Media star won the obvious award as bona fided Rockstar Bono. Grinning from ear to ear this old hand professional networked the room all night  AND seemed to be very getting friendly with Google +’s father & Facebook. It looks like these three titans were hatching a plan or were they discussing the latest snooping by the National Security Agency where big brother is clearly watching us all now with the help of these Social Media stars. ( Opps have said too much already ….  Ehh time to get out of here)

This is Roger Smith reporting from  the “Social Media as Rockstars” Awards – go spread the word baby and be be-autiful, always be be-autiful, cos let’s face it AHEM, no one wants to look at an ugly bitch. Just saying it as it is…Love in lightyears.


A big thank you to our FAVOURITE alien guest reporter Roger Smith who mixed & mingled & disguised himself at least three times while he bitched and schadenfreuded to bring us this special report on the big global Social Media stars receiving their latest awards!

* (NO pls don’t tell me you are reading this cos u want me to explain the concept…eehhh Social Media Stars who act like their f**kin Rockstars…)
