Know someone who's addicted to blogging, MySpace, Twitter, or Facebook and want to rub it in a little? Give them a funny award. Corporate comedian Larry Weaver has several awards for the geeks who can't get enough online socializing. The awards are professional and can be printed out at home. They're also budget-friendly -- free.
"We all know people who are addicts - to blogging, Facebook, and other online sites. They are updating their Facebook page while you're talking to them. You have to watch what you say or they'll blog about it. My social media awards are free. Printed one off at home, frame it, and put under the tree for a good laugh this Christmas," said Weaver -- who is a blogger himself.
The funniest part of social media addicts is how seriously they can take themselves. Help them see how funny that is.
Here's a sample of the funny awards:
- Compulsive Blogger - This is for the person who wants to hang out with other bloggers but can barely communicate in real life. They talk about their blog as if it was the only thing there is. Or they take pictures just for the sake up making a better post. They're likely to blog about getting this award and will take this funny award as a compliment.
- MySpace Junkie - Give this award to someone who lives out their life on MySpace. They talk about whose added them as a "friends" and are constantly learning how to pimp out their profile. They have several bands as "friends" and when you go to their profile, their friend's music starts playing.
- Twitter addict - If you know someone who tweets everything they do and has ever said the word twitterverse, it's a sure sign they're addicted. This is the type of person who defines themselves by how many followers they have on Twitter. They talk about Twitter as if everyone else cares. Another sign? They attend tweetups.
The social media awards acknowledge these time wasting afflictions that a portion of the population suffers from. Make up your own version with Weaver's new ebook (the addicted to ebooks award is coming soon). There are blank awards that can be customized to give to other time wasters, avoiders, and the other characters we encounter in life.

Feel free to blog about these awards or frame them and hang them at work. Just be careful - or the next award could be given to you!
