What would social media look like if Bob “Happy Trees” Ross, painter, art instructor and host of The Joy Of Painting, put it on canvas? What would the social media landscape look like as a painting? A fun new infographic from Flowtown called ‘The Joy Of Social Media: How Bob Ross Sees It’ answers this question.
In ‘The Joy Of Social Media’, the Web’s largest social landscapes—Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more are illustrated as shiny, happy Bob Ross paintings. Facebook is the “Happy Mega Mountain”, Google Buzz is the “Deserted Destination”, Myspace is “My Unfortunate Space” and Twitter is “Happy Little Blue Birds,” of course. Each picture comes complete with “Bob’s Tip,” a Bob Ross-esque description of the picture and social network it encompasses. For example, “Few things make me happier than seeing a happy little blue bird tweeting with all his happy little friends. But what makes me really giddy with delight is hearing a beautiful symphony of 200 million blue birds all tweeting their own happy tune.”
Check out the full infographic below. How do you think Flowtown’s Bob Ross did at capturing each social landscape? And which painting do you like best?
