Facebook's "25 Random Things" Phenomenon

By now you may be among the hundreds of thousands who have shared "25 Random Things" about yourself to your Facebook community. The "25" phenomenon has spread so quickly that now its being picked up by major news organizations. The Washington Post's online webmag, Slate carried an interesting take on the 25 fad in their piece, "Charles Darwin Tagged You in a Note on Facebook, The evolutionary roots of Facebook's "25 Things" craze." Writer Chris Wilson suggests, that the "25 Things" was an evolutionary exercise from the original "16 Things." States Wilson, "Late last fall, a chain letter titled "16 Random Things About Me" began to chew its way through Facebook. The author of one of these notes would itemize her personality into "16 random things, facts, habits, or goals," then tag 16 friends who would be prompted to write their own lists. And so on and so on." Read the rest of his article here. We'd like to hear your thoughts--if not, 25 at a time.
