Can you imagine "favoriting" real-life interactions? "Poking" people? (Just don't). Re-tumbling someone's idea? Embodying a hashtag? These are just a few of the online behaviors that we're happy to leave in the abstract. In fact, almost everything about social media is counterintuitive in real life — there's no question we turn into creatures of a different habit online. Of course, no one documents the absurdities of this better than BuzzFeed — even as the site itself influences how we experience, navigate, and organize the wilds of the Internet. Its new video hilariously demonstrates just how creepy seven activities — that we all engage in online — would be if experienced IRL. Consider it the harbinger of a new era of social-guidance films.
