An elderly grandma is on her death bed. She leans over to her granddaughter, knowing that death must be close, and says, “I want to leave you my farm. That includes the villa, the tractor and other equipment, the farmhouse and $22,398,750.78 in cash.”
The granddaughter, about to become rich, says, “Oh Grandma you are so generous. I didn’t even know you had a farm. Where is it?” With her last breath, she whispered, “Facebook.”
We take social media pretty seriously here at Hootsuite, but sometimes we need a good laugh. When promoting ourselves on different social networks, it’s important to remember that not everything is all about business; having the right amount of humor can make a big difference in your follower count, engagement, and ultimately, brand loyalty.
This weekend we asked our Twitter followers to tell us a social media joke. Some of your answers were pretty hilarious (in fact, a few we couldn’t even post here if we wanted too). Let’s take a look at your jokes so we can all have a good laugh, together.
