Facebook's Breast Cancer Awareness Statuses

Original post made by FB user, Palo Verde, on Jan 9, 2010

As any facebook user can testify, the color coded statuses this week has brought a worldwide awareness to breast cancer in a humorous way. There are some who call it viral? I am sure that the intention was never that, but since Palo Alto is facebook's hometown, what do we think?

It was TMI .. didn't find it humorous .. thought it was quite sleazy.

So it made people curious about the colors, then they found out what the colors meant .. that was it. How did it really draw attention to the cancer part ?
