When Grandma Gets On Social Media…
If you've been on social media this week you've seen these memes, they're everywhere you look. The collage with showing 4 different pics for linked in, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder. the question is where did this come from? Who sat there and thought ' this is a good idea" I'm gonna start a social media challenge and this is how I'm going to do it. The answer to that question is NOBODY. The Dolly Pardon Challenge was an innocent post that just kinda happened. This is how CNN describes it:
On January 21, the 74-year-old debuted her collage: For professional networking site LinkedIn, there's Dolly in buttoned-up school marm mode. For family-friendly Facebook, Dolly in a jolly Christmas sweater. For aesthetics-driven Instagram, black-and-white Dolly in high-waisted bell bottoms and a guitar in hand. And for the dating app Tinder, Dolly in the bunny outfit she posed in for Playboy.
"Get you a woman who can do it all," she wrote, a phrase that's already become a familiar internet proverb. She punctuated the sentence with a sly winking emoji, as if to say, "You know I'm not really on Tinder, but I'm hip enough to get the reference."
Just when you thought social media was for kids and people trying to hook up, a 74 year old steps up and shows everyone how its done. Congrats Dolly! BTW did your god daughter Miley teach you that?
