Clap Laugh, Claplaugh, Laugh Clap, and/or Laughclap

https://digitalcitizen.ca/category/writing/When I heard about British diver Tom Daley knitting and crocheting in the stands at the Tokyo Olympics, I did what I suspect a lot of people did as the story has gone viral. I clap laughed. That is, I enjoyed the story and thought so much I was clapping while I was laughing, like applauding him for it while getting enough of a kick from it I was laughing. Except there was one little problem. “Clap laugh” isn’t a proper term, apparently! A DuckDuckGo search for “clap laugh” with quotations to show results of those exact words and spacing, as well as that for “claplaugh” as one word, showed nothing! A Google search showed a few GIFs under the term, some as “laugh clap”. But you know what, for the unofficiality that this is, I’ll stake claim to it!

The Better 30 Day Song Challenge for Facebook (A Variation)

There is a Facebook Community (sort of like a wiki on Facebook after enough people are part of it) called the 30 Day Song Challenge, with over a million users who “Like” it! The idea is that you share a song of certain meaning to you each day on your Facebook profile. It’s a great idea, this song a day sharing thing. I’ve created a few myself earlier this year without knowing about this concept, with the 28 great love songs in February and Top 10 Bob Dylan songs leading to his 70th birthday in May 2011. Both were intended to be theme focused, though, unlike this meme that is more about variety.

However, despite being about variety, the 30 themes for the Facebook 30 Day Song Challenge were a bit too similar, repetitive, anti-climatic and dated for my liking, and also not universal enough:

Most Likely To… The Evolution of a Facebook Tagging Meme

Note: Since this posting, I have evolved Facebook picture tagging memes on my own ideas far beyond this concept I saw. My ideas involve real world and life actions rather than just associating ideas. They are listed under the Action memes category, involving what I call Facebook 2.0 tagging memes.

The pictorial Facebook tagging memes that have been going around in many variations seems to have evolved into that common high school year book feature, the Most Likely To… page. I saw one just hours ago, but it was so poorly done (mostly due to almost unreadable small type) I went and created my own, text, picture compilation and all. Here’s how to get it:

  • Click on the picture below 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 or let them tag themselves.

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.

In case you don’t recognize some of the people in my new version, they are as follows, left to right:

  • Top: Peyton Manning, Wangari Matthai, Osama bin Laden, Paris Hilton, Jet Li
  • Middle: Pamela Anderson, Bob Dylan, Oprah Winfrey, the current Dalai Lama, Sue Johannson
  • Bottom: Claudia Schiffer, Martha Stewart, Bill Gates, Anna Nicole Smith, Barack Obama

You can Google these people if you want to know more about who they are, and maybe guess why I’ve put labeled each as such.

Care Bear Avatars, Icons and Profile Pics for Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Other Sites

These avatars were created specifically for Facebook, though they could be used for other social media sites and anything allowing for an avatar. They can even be used where square avatars are needed because they crop well. Please come back later and look for links below for avatars of other themes, some of which are more square.

These graphics came from the original files I collected in making my new Care Bears Facebook tagging poster. To get an avatar:
