“Log off from Facebook, Mom”
In the run up to Mothers’ Day in the US, children have called on their mothers to log off from the social network Facebook and pay some attention to them.
The 46-second video published on MomFilter.com portal for young parents shows small abandoned children who are trying to attract their mothers’ attention, while the mothers are sitting before computers and waving them away. At the end of the clip, a small girl pulls out computer’s plug from the socket and drags her mom to the children’s room. The link in the video leads to the Log Off! website, which is a basic homepage hosted by web portal MomFilter. It consists of only one page that includes the copy: “Thank you for visiting the The Log Off! But the whole point is to log off your computer, at least for a little while. So, scram.”There has been no reaction from the social network’s management yet.According to statistics, more than 600 million people are signed up to Facebook. As comScore agency’s research says that in December of 2010 people have spend 49.3 million minutes on Facebook, which is 79 per cent longer than in 2009.
