1. Tagged ( Sharon Stone)
Her movie Basic Instinct blew everybody over. Similarly, Tagged impressed everybody by the idea of checking mail for your friends on it. But the assets became a liability; nobody could see Sharon Stone unless through the Basic Instinct lens and nobody wanted to be a spammer to friends after joining this website.
Both went down in the pages of history with just one image attached to their persona.
2. Friendster (Marilyn Monroe) They were the first celebrities in their respective field. No one knew such things could exist in such a way; seductive-innocence or virtual social interaction.And then something went wrong. Marilyn Monroe lost herself to depression and drugs, and Friendster to the illusion of being the only player in the market. Both are still more famous than anybody small, but sadly nothing compared to their potential.
3.Linkedin ( Uma Thurman )
It is difficult to see Uma Thurman in any other role then kicking butts (though she has done some un-remember-able romantic flicks too). Similarly, you canât see Linkedin in any other role. Hoping both sticks to what they do best: completing the business.
4.Shelfari (Juliette Binoche)
Literary, elucidating, and impressive. Both of them are not for everybody; but those who are their fans canât bear anything else. You donât have a movie shelf without her films; and you donât know about books without having an account on shelfari.
5. Hi5 ( Kate Winslet)
On your Thai Holiday you canât afford to miss these stars. But as you canât always walk on revolutionary road, similarly you canât be always on Hi5. They have more fan following in the east of Atlantic than in the west, but still that does not make these any less of icons.
Going by numbers the Hi5 ship is pretty strong but then so was Titanic.
6. Orkut (Jane Fonda)
Having the parentage of Google and Henry Fonda, both had an advantage from their birth. They both found their followers early. But down the time, the followers got distilled further and further, and only a loyal band remained.
7. Ning ( Julia Roberts)
They are not for one genre, or one style. They both can be the âPretty Womenâ or the strong âErin Brockovichâ. Just put them in any role and you will feel they were made for that. Their Mona Lisa Smile has been enchanting followers who can put any meaning to them through their imagination.
8. Myspace ( Elizabeth Taylor)
Both of them revolutionized their respective industries; she brought life to the movie National Stardom at the tender age of 12 and it to the tender social networking industry.
Both entranced people with their larger than life style; and number of husbands and number of features were an asset and liability in equal measure. Elizabeth Taylor had a love affair with jewelry, and Myspace became the jewel of Murdochâs Newscorp.
9. Twitter (Reese Witherspoon)
They may be small and light in size but not in stature. Both received instant recognition from the minute they forayed into their respective fields. Few went by their looks, and wrote them off, and paid the price pretty dearly.
She knows how to break the stereotype and Twitter knows how to break news.
10. Facebook (Angelina Jolie)
The desire of everybody; she is cool like a cat and hot like a fire. She started her career form George Wallace (1997) and Gia (1998), and won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the drama, Girl, Interrupted (1999), in short everything perfect. Similarly for Facebook, which started from Harvard and was limited to IVY college students, nothing better could have happened, even if planned. Both rose to fame in such short time that you couldnât stop anybody (including Brad Pitt or Microsoft) getting attracted to them.
You canât be a movie goer without knowing her and similarly you cannot be on the net without getting an invitation from Facebook.
