So long Facebook & Twitter

Would you give up Facebook and Twitter for $1million? Of course you would, you’re not insane, and neither is Lady Gaga (although this is still open for debate). Alicia Keys’ charity Keep a Child Alive has amassed some heavyweight PR thanks to a simple but effective campaign to get celebs to give up social networking to raise money.

As of Wednesday (1 Dec), Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Usher will stop using Facebook and Twitter and shan’t return until Keys’ charity has raised $1 million (£640,000). Talking about the cause Keys said, ‘once I got people on the phone and I was able to paint the concept for them, everybody was in’. Other celebs signed up for the Digital Life Sacrifice campaign include Elijah Wood, Jennifer Hudson and Serena Williams.

So, making money from doing absolutely sweet FA, still musn’t grumble, it is for charity after all.
