Updated Cliches For The Social Media World

Cliches have been around for centuries. We all know them. We all use them.

Some of us love them.

Some of us love them too much.

Social Media!

You know…Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, FarmersOnly.com, etc.

We understand that most of these sayings were written around the same time that the Bible hit the Gutenberg printing press, but we feel it is time for some updated sayings to reflect today’s modern and fast paced Internet world.

With that premise in mind, Long Awkward Pause presents: Updated Cliches For The Social Media World:
