Bitterwallet's National Who Cares Day - who, what and why?
We do. And we know you do, too. Which is why Wednesday 17th November is National Who Cares Day.
It's a day to take action against friends, family, colleagues and strangers who abuse Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media with their prickish self-important noodling.
The idea was spurred on by avid Bitterwallet reader Paul, after he sent us this screenshot from Facebook - regardless of its origins, everyone will identify with it:
The trouble is, when you point out that people are sharing information that makes you want to put your eyes through a threshing machine, it's you who's labelled the troublemaker, the outcast. No more. We're all for putting the social into social media, but that doesn't mean putting up with status updates that reads like somebody transcribed dinnertime at toddling group.
...what can you do? Good question. You'll find different sizes of the logo on this page - download it for your Facebook or Twitter avatar. Everyone who does stands to win prizes for their support. Keep tuned into Bitterwallet for more details, avid readers.
