Hugging Spree and Pass-a-Hug Facebook 2.0 Picture Tagging Meme

If you follow the Facebook picture tagging memes I’ve been created, you would see I’m evolving them into what I call Facebook 2.0 versions (or action tagging memes). It is named after the Web 2.0 concept, where it’s not just fun and games but result in real life actions. The latest one just requires hugging and appears below, in two versions of two levels of difficulty. But some logistics first… here’s how to get these picture memes or where you can find others if you were looking for them and I had them.

  • Click on the picture to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends!

Please click here for a complete list of over 100 Facebook picture tagging memes on this site, with which you can use for fun with your friends.

Please click here to get some of the small graphics below to use as avatars, buddy icons and profile pictures for Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Bebo, WordPress, Blogspot, LiveJournal and other applications.

Before I get on with the hugging tagging meme, please be aware that hugging could be sexual assault if the person hugged does not want to be hugged by you! If you are not sure they might be OK, do NOT hug them, and don’t use this as an excuse to do so!

Now that we’re ready, for the first and simple hug tagging meme version, you go out and hug a bunch of friends on a hugging spree. After each one, you tag one of the hugging pictures on the poster. You could do it the other way to tag them all first, then go hug them. However, I think it’s better if you hug them first because it’s a surprise. Otherwise, there’s going to be expectations.

You could turn this into a game by having a bunch of friends upload the picture and race to get the poster filled after a certain time you set, like starting next Monday morning. Given the nice nature of hugs, you could do that every week! 🙂

The second version requires a little more patience and coordination. What you have to do is start the chain reaction by hugging someone you have as a Facebook friend and tag him or her in the upper left hand corner. The poster has instructions included. The person hugged then goes to hug someone else and tags the icon below that, and so on as the arrows show in the poster.

People who are involved are, in essence, passing a hug along. At the end of the chain, the last person tagged on the poster has to hug you to close the circle. Get it?
