IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WHERE ARE YOU IN A SWAMP ???!!!!
More on that in a moment from Kermit the Frog [#kermitthefrog]
Believe it or not, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge didn’t start out as a fundraiser for the ALS Association.
The “new” social media craze actually began last winter, The Wall Street Journal reports, with professional golfers trying to gain support for various pet charities. Early versions of the ice bucket challenge first started popping up as early as nine months ago, according to The Guardian, but the craze got national attention when golfer Greg Norman challenged “Today” host Matt Lauer, and he accepted on live TV.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge seem to have gained momentum and high Visibility when the creator and founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg [Marks Video] Challenged Bill Gates [Bill’s Video], who accepted.
Did the Ice Bucket Challenge Go NUTS FROM THERE …… OH YEA!!!
As you can see in this following video montage, the nutty progression and how far this thing has truly spread out.
Again, where did this truly start? Let’s hear from the man Pat Quinn, credited with the starting of the Ice Bucket Challenge Phenomenon. [VIDEO is Being Accessed very highly, so it might take some time to load]
DO PEOPLE PAY UP?
It’s not hard to find people who FAILED to acknowledge their challenge, but sometimes it’s hard to KNOW if you HAVE been Challenged, especially if you are an infrequent user of Social Media, where this is spreading.
HOW DO I CHALLENGE OR GET SOMEONEs ATTENTION FOR THE CHALLENGE?
If you know someone is on a specific Social Media Platform often, that is you communicate with them, use the HashTag system where by you place a pound sign in front of their name [#nameofperson]. This will often alert the person, depending on how they have alerts setup or how often they log in to their account.
With Facebook it’s easy, if their name is on your friends list, the moment you start typing it will send the alert.
Keep in mind Not everyone has smart phones, Funny, yea I know, but get them involved, Call them, make the video together, help each other out, find a kid that knows YouTube.
And Last of All HAVE FUN with, its a Great Cause.
OH and about Kermit the Frog…..
