The Internet’s love affair with Facebook might hit a rough patch from time to time, but there’s no denying that it’s the social networking giant that keeps us connected to everyone and everything we like in one easy online platform.So, to celebrate all things FB, we’ve rounded up a selection of Facebook-themed real-life products, from witty tees to cool stationery (because someone is still sending snail mail) that you can nab now to show your love for online social networking in the offline world.
You probably shouldn’t send this to your significant other (unless they have a great sense of humor), but you can’t beat this witty birthday greeting card, especially for a fellow social networking enthusiast. This high quality card pokes fun at Facebook’s handy highlighting of forthcoming birthdays.
We love these tees that offer something different from the “you like this” message, which is so last year. Bonaroo has taken characters from popular movies and imagined their “likes.” The example above is from The Goonies, but over on the site you’ll find fun with Predator, Back to the Future, Anchorman and more.
Cost: £12.99 (approx $19.50)
No doubt we’ve all commented on our need for, or love of, caffeine in the Facebook status bar at one time or another, making this mug a great option for coffee-loving Facebookers.
Cost: From $13.95
Just genius, we love these Like and Dislike stamps that bring Facebook feelings into the real world. You can buy the stamps separately or as a set, with the guys behind the design stating: “The Like/Dislike set combines everything you need to silently judge everything that surrounds you with nothing more than a flick of your wrist.”
Cost: From £9.99 (approx $15)
You have to rock a certain type of style to pull off this Facebook-blue, talking-point timepiece with the pithy message “Facebook ruined my life.” Strap it on as you bemoan the hours you’ve lost thanks to the addictive nature of social networking (Or maybe Facebook did actually ruin your life?). Put your sob stories in the comments box below.
Although we’re not convinced most people would want it decorating their living room walls, we suppose this decal could add some Facebook fun to your office. You can personalize the word shown above the “You like this” text, and share your preference for a company, brand, person or website (hint, hint) with everyone.
Cost: $13.99 for one word, but custom orders are also available
We adore this stationery set with its clean, Facebook-esque design that comprises 14 personalized cards and envelopes. For special missives, you can go old school and actually send a note via snail mail, rather than write on someone’s wall, but still keep that Facebook look and feel.
8. Book of Fame
You can personalize this blank hardback notebook with your — and any other Facebook friends who boast a witty turn of phrase — status updates, which are printed randomly on the bottom of the inside pages, making it unique to you.
Promising a “precise and consistent glide,” this mousepad is just what you’d expect from the Meninos team — a witty take on a techie topic. Asking “what’s on your mousepad?” the Facebook wall icons are lovingly recreated for an FB-themed accessory any fan would be happy to have.
Tell it like it is with this anti-Farmville tee.
Cost: $20.25 from MySoti
