You know what today is?

Remember the last time Wingnuttia tried to do social media?

Today is the launch of Tea Party Community, the new facebook-like social networking site for conservatives-only! (Which sort of looks a lot like Facebook, so I’m guessing Faceberg’s attorneys are already drooling.)

A group of conservatives is launching their own social networking site after enduring what they call years of censorship and liberal bullying on Facebook.

The Tea Party Community is expected to officially launch on Saturday – but the social networking site for conservatives has already drawn nearly 50,000 members.

Yes, that’s right – Facebook for Conservatives!

(The Censorship? Probably the infamous watermelons on the White House Lawns, or Witch Doctor Obama, but I’m only guessing. The Bullying is probably getting lotsa thumbs-down when they suggest assassinating The Kenyan Usurper or beating up the gay kid in gym class. Again, I’m only guessing.)

So now maybe all those creepy Facebook stalkers and weirdos from your past will finally leave you alone?

Heads all over Wingnuttia to explode in 3… 2… 1… that the Kenyan Usurper Hawaiian Devil Baby is spending time pinning (pining?) on another social media site


The US military is developing software that will let it secretly manipulate social media sites by using fake online personas to influence internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda.

It will work, of course, until Atrios declares blogroll amnesty again and cuts the sockpuppets off.

The Death of the (New) Media

Condé Nast asks readers to cough up bucks to save their Reddit social networking service.

Reddit says it needs money to buy more servers to handle its increasing traffic. It also wants to hire a developer and a Web designer to join its current staff of five full-timers and a part-timer.

But Reddit says it won’t get the money it needs from Conde Nast because the site doesn’t bring in enough ad revenue. The ads it runs are small and unobtrusive—not very lucrative—and that isn’t something Reddit wants to change, said Chris Slowe, Reddit’s senior programmer, on Monday.

Bet the Reddit team is really glad that they sold to Condé Nast in 2006 to bring them the security of a corporate owner…

You know that scene in Amelie…

…where she imagines the number of people doing it?


Well, if she visited the NSFW I Just Made Love, she would know.

Yes, the ultimate in social media with the ultimate of TMI, I Just Made Love allows you to post where you did it and rate it. You can also tell what positions you used… and overshare as much as your bragging little heart wants to.
