nissepus-to-blog-postIn e-Learning Lab we have as Christmas garden gnome with the name ‘Ell Nissepus’. Last year one of my colleagues created a Facebook profile for her, and during December Nissepus posted status updates about the upcoming Christmas party etc. This year Nissepus is alive again and some of us take turns to update the profile with Christmassy stuff and write to our colleagues.

Last week I was interviewed by the Danish newspaper B.T. about Christmas activities on social network sites like Facebook. I happened to mention Ell Nissepus, which the journalist found so interesting that he decided to mention her in the article (which was published today) as an example of how users can creatively use Facebook to create social bonds during the holiday season.

Even though I am strongly against fake profiles, I think this is okay as it is obvious that e-Learning Lab is behind the profile. And it is a nice Christmas gag around the office.

Feel free to friend ‘Ell Nissepus‘. I’m sure she will like the attention😀

Update December 12: Today there is an online version of the B.T. article in which Nissepus is mentioned.
