Free (read “cheap”) and efficient (read “lazy”) are two of my favorite qualities. Thanks to Tom Mighell over at Inter Alia for a tip on an application that helps you fill in that pervasive status line on your various social networking sites so you don’t have to think about it. Called generatus, the site describes its service as follows:
How many hours have you wasted trying to think of something suitably witty, funny and original for your status on Facebook or Twitter?
Let’s face it, a status like “Dave is mowing the lawn” or “Kate is asleep” is not going to impress that huge entourage of friends you’ve amassed.
Never fear! Your days of boring status updates are over! Simply type your name, indicate whether you are a boy or a girl, then hit Generate.
You will be served up a brand new, sparkly status all ready to be copied and pasted into Facebook, Twitter or whichever social networking site you like best.
They may be onto something. I am a Monty Python fan and my first generated status was “Martha is being repressed.” My next status read “Martha is wondering: why does the sun come out during the day, when it would be so much more useful if it came out at night when it was dark?” Yup, that fits both my profile and the 140 character Twitter limit.
Not sure how this will promote your law practice or business within the social media realm, but it is fun and may earn you a few laughs.
