Cartoon characters invade Facebook

December 5, 2010 4 comments

Until Monday 6th December, people are changing their display pictures on Facebook to their favourite cartoon character from the 80’s and 90’s to support the campaign, “Stop violence against children”. If you saw my previous post, I felt it was important to show my support.

 

Google trends have seen an increase in cartoon character searches, and many Facebook status’ have been changed to:

Until Monday (Dec. 6), there should be no human faces on Facebook but an invasion of memories. This is for eliminating violence against children

Although, it is not a dedicated day, week or month to child protection against violence, this viral sweep emphasises and highlights our responsibility as a society to protect young children.

So, if you haven’t changed your display picture already, have a nostalgic afternoon searching on Youtube or Amazon for your memorable (possibly, forgotten) cartoon character(s), upload then share with your online community. Show your support.

If you have changed your display picture, what was your favourite cartoon character(s)? Donatello- teenage mutant ninja turtle? Mario? Wolverine? Rugrats? Spongebob?

Please share (if you are not too embarrassed) what your favourite cartoon character is (or was, for those grown up individuals amongst us).
