Yesterday at a friend’s place I happened to come across a small tiny piece of notebook which most or rather I should say all of us would have come across at some point of life. Farewell time in schools or colleges is when these notebooks come out and then get filled in a weeks time, probably faster than any other notebook in a students life. If you’ve not guessed uptil now then I must tell you that I am talking about the Slam Book. Our favourite book which all of us get filled or fill for someone else when we leave our institutions or in better words when we leave our friends.
Yesterday when I came across another such book after quite a long time and as I went through an empty page just reading the questions I realized that what would be the future of these slam books. Lets see what would the questions turn out to be :
Name would be : Profile Name, Orkut Name, Facebook Name.
Instead of Address, there would be options like, twitter link, linkedin profile link, orkut link, facebook link and not to forget the email id. Maybe there would be added columns of telephone number.
Friends would be replaced by the number of orkut friends or better with the way twitter is growing, it would be “twitter followers”.
“Favourite phrase” would become “favourite tweet”.
“Favourite place” would become “favourite URL/link/website”.
“Favourite relative” would become “favourite orkut friend”.
“Hobbies” would get changed to “favourite applications used on orkut/facebook“.
“Favourite game” would look like “favourite gaming site”.
And last but not the least, the question we all look forward to :
“Lines for you” would be replaced by “Testimonial” or maybe “Recommendation”.
And yes not to forget, I must say “my cool autograph” would look something like “my signature” and would have our fav one liners and our entire contact info, like most of us have on gmail.
Looks nice to me and would be more interesting is that really becomes a reality.
