Recently we’ve been hearing about how a person got caught in Facebook faking his illness to get a sick leave, how 2 girls shouted for help on Facebook rather than calling the emergency service, or how a mom got sacked because she made an inappropriate comment about her workplace on Twitter.
This time it’s different. It’s the story of my friend, Huiwen, in Singapore (well, we met briefly on the Nuffnang Blog Award 2009 last month) whose dog went missing. By some miracles, she then found Scruffy (the dog) through series of tweeting, plurking, facebook-ing?, and who knows what else!
I’m not gonna re-tell the story again here in this blog but feel free to check out her blog posts to find out how the social media helped her in finding her lost dog! It was quite an amusing story especially on how fast and helpful the people at social media are!
At the end, my friend was contacted by the people who found her dog through the contact form on her blog!
The story goes as follows:
- How Scruffy went missing
- How people worked together on Twitter, Facebook, Plurk, and through her blog post to find Scruffy
- The aftermath and her thoughts on the whole experience
I believe her story should have been made onto the media! This is quite an amusing experience and deserves a coverage!
