What is Planking?

Remember “planking”? Recently, this was one of the hottest trends on the Internet. I’m sure you or one of your friends, at one point, had seen it or maybe even tried it. What’s so neat about these trends are the ever evolving imaginations it conjures in people.  What pushes trends to this evolutionary state has been propelled into hyper drive by the growing popularity of social media and the ability to share just about anything with one click of your mouse. If you want to stay on top of the developing trends, there is an unspoken requirement to be immersed in social media. If you aren’t ‘plugged in’ you are definitely going to be left behind and boy will you be embarrassed when you are still planking while everyone else is owling, tebowing, batmanning, snailing…

Which brings me back to my original question: What is planking anyway?  We plank while we sleep so that doesn’t take much talent, but here at TrevNet, we are hardcore, and since we are pioneers of all things awesome we choose to stay in front of the trends.

…we Batman:

…and we Snail:

…but we don’t plank!

What are you doing to stay on top of the lightning fast, ever-changing social media revolution?
