Beds on Facebook: Furniture Revolution
January 19th, 2009
It’s pretty normal these days to keep a blog or Twitter account. Some people even set up social networking accounts for their infant children, or even their pets. One intrepid person has pushed the envelope, however, into a realm heretofore unimagined: she’s got a bed with its own not-inconsiderable fanbase on Facebook.
The custom hamburger (or, cheeseburger, as it maybe should be) bed resides at Kayla Kromer’s house in Texas, and looks pretty comfy, but should it have a Facebook page of its own? The question isn’t answered, so perhaps what we should really be asking is: why shouldn’t the hamburger bed have its own digital footprint?
I admit, the hamburger bed is a clever (and squishy) concept, and it would certainly be a conversation starter. But 3,000 fans on Facebook… clearly, that’s some sort of sinister plot to take over the world (or at least the Internet).
I, for one, welcome our new geek furniture overlords.
