Facebook status messages can tell us a lot about a person’s life such as what they’re doing or where they’re going for that given day.
But a new trend on January 7, 2010 had people scratching their heads. Many people were posting just random colors as their Facebook status messages and no one knew why. Everyone was trying to answer this question on Facebook as quickly as possible.
So, what is the story behind posting a color as a Facebook status message?
Why are People Posting Colors as Facebook Status Messages?
The trend of posting a color as a Facebook status message began through a group in the city of Ann Arbor, Michigan, at least that state’s version of it according to AnnArbor.com, as a way to bring out breast cancer awareness again.
Breast cancer awareness has gone on the back burner for a little while and this idea helped bring it back to the forefront a bit.
The colors posted on Facebook status messages were actually of the bra that woman or girl was wearing at the time. Some posted red, black, or even leopard print designs as their Facebook status messages.
While the idea of breast cancer awareness is a good thing it is important to remember that prevention is the best way to stop breast cancer.
Go to the sites www.naturalnews.com or mercola.com and type in breast cancer for some alternative stories on cancer-fighting nutrients and foods such as fruits and vegetables that also contain cancer-fighting ingredients. Also be sure to research natural ways to fight breast cancer such as Suzanne Somers’ newest book, Knockout.
There is still much to learn about the fight against breast cancer that many people are not aware of in more ways than one, that’s for sure.
