Fun Infographic Asks ‘What If Social Media Sites Were Your Neighbors?’

‘What If Social Media Sites Were Your Neighbors?’ brings together Facebook, Twitter, Turntable.fm, YouTube, Google Plus, Flickr, Wikipedia, Path, Reddit and Myspace and illustrates what it would be like if they all lived in your building. Who would be the noisy neighbor? Who would be the cat lady? And who would live in the dark, murky basement?

We spend a large portion of our lives on social media sites but the truth of the matter is that Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Plus and other social networks aren’t real life.  A new infographic from Column Five Media explores what it might be like if all your favorite social media sites were real life—specifically, what it would be like if you lived in an apartment building with social media.

The background behind this infographic is explained on the Column Five Blog:

“An ongoing discussion at Column Five HQ is ‘What if social media manifested itself in real life?’  It’s a question that addresses much of our personal and professional lives and can be characterized as constant noise, new trends, and the occasionally absurd, among other things.  And while most of our commentary tends to evolve into abstract tangents, we decided to focus on one application of the hypothesis.”

Thus, their latest infographic was born.  Check it out below and let us know what you think.  Which social media site would you most like to live with?
