While everyone else is soaked in champagne and kisses this New Year’s Eve, the social aficionados will be drowning in their social apps and status updates. We profile for you the various types of social media users you’ll come across when Big Ben strikes at midnight.
No matter where they are and what’s going on around them, every moment represents a brilliant photo opportunity. And while their NYE photo album is stacked full on Facebook, most of their friends’ smiles have long faded.
If “there’s an app for that,” this one’s phone has it. This app-o-phile has all the obscure apps you’ve never heard of to join in the countdown celebrations around the world.
This person’s celebration starts long before the clock strikes 12 in their time zone. And what better way to ring in the cheer than following Reddit posts from those who reached the other side first? Sadly, when midnight finally rolls around, this partier is pooped.
The mixologist scours their friends’ status updates to learn the latest cocktail du jour. After consulting their mixed-drink app, they then take the initiative to correct the bartender.
While the rest of the revelers are enjoying the friends and family around them, the Far-and-Away-er is closely monitoring where his social media friend are, and what kind of booze they’re drinking.
The party may be raging around them, but they’re scouring the missed connections board in search of the “one that got away” from them last year.
They love to play host, and this year’s gala is a roaring success. But it’s now 11:53 PM, and they’re still on Pinterest looking for ideas to put the finishing touches on the party.
On any other day, posting your kissing photos may be a major faux-pas. But on New Year’s Eve, this one seizes the opportunity to throw the unspoken rule out the window, posting such photos all over the social Web.
Many New Year’s revelers will be invited to multiple parties via Facebook events. Thanks to Apple Maps, however, it’s likely some may find themselves searching for friends at the wrong gathering.
You can spot this person from yards away, but it is likely they won’t see you. Instead, their face will be buried in their Twitter app while they blast out a seemingly endless string of live update Tweets. It’s amazing how quickly 140 characters become 14,000.
