I came across this video on YouTube and really liked it!
It’s a video about big red push button on a quiet square in Belgium. The sign above the button had the text “Push to add drama”.

That’s a exactly what Australian comedy show ‘The Hungry Beast’ was wondering. They have created a video called ‘The Offline Social Network’. The video basically pokes fun at the information people post on their Facebook account.
