Beards Social Media=Win

Posted using ShareThis

There was a flurry of tweets this afternoon about new media guys and beards, and I thought, "What? Someone is bearding for Mashable??? For Chris Brogan?!?" See, beard has more than a single meaning. It can also mean someone who covers for a homosexual or loosely construed to simply mean someone who covers for someone else. So on seeing famous names and "beards" in the same tweets, my first reaction was that someone was bearding these social media thought leaders; assuming their online identities and faking tweets and posts. But no. I went to the source, the clever Lost Jacket site and read the original. Go to the source. Grow your own beard. And enjoy.

Oh, I thought the same thing! Those new media folks may be on top of technology but clearly not popular culture.
