If you logged onto Facebook today wondering why women were posting random colors as their status updates, you’re among a group of women and even more men that were completely thrown aloof as to what was happening.
After taking a moment to realize that 80% of the women among my facebook friends couldn’t all be going crazy at the same time, I did some research and got to the bottom of what was happening.
After a quick Google search you’ll get the answer. Apparently, the Facebook color meme is part of a cause to raise breast cancer awareness. This is not just going on in your area; it seems to have spread across many parts of the US and even Canada.
According to Jake Cormier, a writer for SooNews.ca, the following was posted in a forum:
“We’re having some fun…put the color of the bra you are wearing in your status (if you are not wearing one now then put the color of the one you had on last or your favorite) let’s try to get this going to spread the wings of breast cancer awareness and have some fun w/ the guys!! Send this to all your fb girls–no guys! Lets see how long it takes for the guys to question what is going on!”
It is definitely already becoming a buzz topic and I’m interested to see how far this will go. Pink, Beige, Red and even Black & White Zebra Print are sure to be memorable status updates and will definitely bring more awareness to breast cancer; along with cause some awkward moments among the Facebook community!
Come back a bit later, as I will definitely be giving an update on this!
