IdeaJam and Friend of a Friend Project on Social Media Survival

Surviving on Social Media: Could You Do It?

We spend a lot of time on our social networks. So much so that some people might say they live their lives online. I certainly do. So how hard would it be then, to get through your day-to-day life surviving only by those things that were provided to you via social media? One man, dubbed Mister SocialM, on Twitter, did exactly that — getting his phone charged, going places, and getting "things" through his online following for 48 hours in conjunction with Intel's IdeaJam and Katalyst (yes, that's Ashton Kutcher's company).

In a less extreme (yet still very socially-focused) case, a traveler named Justin Oliphant is currently making his way around the globe, being hosted by people he's met through his social networks with the Friend of a Friend Project. In a sort of "circle of life" effect, he documents his time with his hosts in blogs, Facebook posts, tweets, videos, and beautiful photos, and has already made it over 10,000 miles (from California to Chicago so far, by way of Arizona, Utah, New Orleans, and Kentucky) thanks to friends, friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends.

Not that you may ever need to, but if you had to survive on the goodness of your social networks and connections, could you? Would you?
