Being Social, Snow Days, and #Snowbored Friends

Unless you’re living under a rock, you probably know that the Saints won the Superbowl and that the Washington region is slowly digging out from a blizzard. While #snowmaggedon’s been a good trending topic, my favorite snow hashtags today are #snowmore (via Colleen Campbell) and #clusterflake (via Line Storgaard Conley). But I’m wondering if we’re missing one: #snowbored.

You see, several friends whose offices are closed have called me to chat. What’s interesting is the trend: no one who called me this morning actively uses social media. So the only way they can connect is an old-fashioned way. So while the rest of us connect and keep working, they’re reaching out for company.

Do you have any #snowbored friends? Can they update Facebook, speak in 140 characters, or define a hashtag?
