So much for “25 random things” going away

For the curmudgeons among us, there’s bad news: 25 Random Things Meme Is a Boon for Facebook – ReadWriteWeb.  One commenter put it bluntly:  “I love how when you put a CHAIN LETTER on Facebook it becomes a MEME.”  The 25 random things meme on Facebook has also a blogging and news media meme in response.

There’s even a #25things hashtag going on twitter, and while the Facebook 25 things meme may actually be “25 things that you might be interested in knowing about me,” the Twitter version ends up being more like “25 bits of TMI from relative strangers.”
