A Look At Life in the Social Media Age Through Parody Videos

Who really cares if you just ate ham & eggs for breakfast? There is so much about social media that just begs to be made fun of. We document our lives to death, take photos of everything, share every random thought and collect friends like we used to collect stamps.

But so what????

Whenever something is new, it’s overused and abused and then it becomes normal and part of our lives. As a scrapbooker, I think it’s awesome that so many people are now taking photos of everything and sharing. I have done that for a long time, but before social media, NO ONE CARED! Now at least, I get a “like.”

The social media parody videos give us a perspective on what life in the social media age is really like, even if it’s a bit exaggerated. But is our life now really that different?

Social Media Parody Videos

But all this social media gives a lot of great content to make fun of and since we all have great tools, there are fun video explaining the different social media platforms. Here are a few of my favorite. This is the one that prompted this post because I thought it was hilarious and it started my search for more.

Instagram Parody

CollegeHumor’s Favorite Funny Videos

Call Me Maybe Like Me Parody

I had to include at least one with the song, “Call Me, Maybe.” It shows us how important we feel that “like” is.

App Parody

This one is not a song parody, but rather an App parody which depicts how we often forget about the “real life” in favor of social media.


This one shows us what “pinning” would like in real life…and it’s kinda scary!!!

Jesus on Twitter

This one is interesting because it takes a story we all know and depicts it using social media. Interesting.

YouTube, The Movie

The YouTube story told like the Facebook movie.

 Facebook, In Real Life

Hilarious….taking our online lives lingo and habits offline and this is what you get..

Christmas, Social Media Style

And in honor of Christmas, the birth of Jesus told on social media…

The Parent Rap

This last one is purely because I absolutely LOVE it. It’s not a social media parody, but rather the life of a parent… Enjoy! It shows how our life hasn’t changed that much since social media…but now we can share our life with anyone and everyone. Social Media has made me realize that we are all not that different. Which is kind of comforting!

These are a few of my favorites and some of the most viewed. Do you have a favorite social media parody video? Leave a link in the comments and I’ll add it to my post.
