Have you ever found yourself shaking your head at the ridiculous amount of overused jargon in the PR world today? Have you ever attended a number of talks and/or functions only to hear the same recycled phrases? Do you think our community is way too earnest?
Help is now at hand in the shape of Social Media Bingo! Released in time for the holiday period you and your colleagues can while away the long winter billable hours by simply clicking through to one of the many excellent PR/marketing podcasts and ticking off the jargon.
Or go to your next geek dinner (they’re all open invitation!) armed with this helpful little primer and have a self referential laugh as you throw in any one of the interchangable and often indecipherable phrases.
Are you the shy retiring type? Then print off two copies and challenge your tablemate to a competitive round of bingo. Oh, how you’ll laugh as you interupt a member of the digerati mid waffle with a triumphant cry of “HOUSE!”.
A great way to liven up even the stalest webinar, conference call or staff meeting.
Available to download and share from this very blog, Social Media Bingo by Ed Lee, is the free pdf download for 2006!
Obviously I’ll be invoking the wisdom of the crowds for version two dot oh, so leave your feedback in the comments or email me directly at e_v_lee[removethis]@hotmail.com.
*UPDATE* Thanks to the wisdom of Judy Gombita who helped out with some of the squares (“command and control” was all her) as well as those who commented on this post from last week.
*UPDATE* Fill in the blanks with your chosen wildcard – or even your own suggestions – to allow for a multi-player session!
Have a fabulous holiday season!
