Describe a time you saw something interesting on social media
You should say:
When it was；
where you saw it；
what you saw；
And explain why you think it was interesting.
I remember a few years ago, there was this massive craze about the egg on Instagram.

It was just an ordinary picture of an egg as an Instagram profile. Basically, it ended up becoming this massive movement where people all over the world liked the profile to try and make it the number one profile on Instagram, and it worked! It overtook Kylie Jenner’s account to smash the records and it ended upbeing the most liked post on social media ever.

I think it’s interesting because it shows the power of the collective. When enough people support a movement, it can gain a massive amount of traction incredibly quickly, especially with the global connection the internet and social media in particular provides.

While this movement just took the form of an egg and was totally insignificant, imagine the power social media could lend to a movement driven by a worthy cause. Actually, I guess we’ve already had an example of this in the “metoo” movement. I do think, though, that it’s easier with something like an egg because it’s not divisive. It’s very hard to get angry at or have a problem with an egg.
