Much Ado About Facebook

All Facebook have covered the wonderful experiment that has been taking place, re-enacting Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing on Facebook.

The idea is that each character in the play has a profile and uses it to communicate, telling the story as they go.

Wonderful artistry aside, I think this is a great way of bringing one of Shakespeare’s greatest (IMO) works to an audience who are used to consuming content in bitesize chunks.

Benedick currently has 419 likes, whilst Beatrice has 431, indicating a small but dedicated group are watching the experiment unfold.

I think this is an awesome idea – what do you think?
