I really don’t know how to explain this in a way that makes it justice so perhaps you should better visit tweetflight immediately. If you insist, though, here is my best try. Electro-folk (yes, this classification exists) group Brightly have released one of the most clever web-based music videos ever, for their song Preflight Nerves.
It is basically a lyrics video, but the words of the song are drawn (almost) real-time from tweets. Clever huh?
Taking the words / phrases out of the context of the tweet and into the song and vice-versa is very interesting; sometimes poignant, sometimes ironic, sometimes hilarious.
I am dying to create a self-referential loop by tweeting about this and appearing in the video!

Well, we all know that all social media can be extremely addictive, but each one with a completely different way. Patrick Moberg compares each one of them with popular drugs and alcoholic beverages:

OK, we all know that Facebook is the shrine of narcissism and self-reference. And the apps that I am going to present are a tribute to the “cult of me”. But they are so well done that they are practically irresistible.
Deutsche Post’s Social Memories creates a booklet filled with infographics based on the public info on your Facebook profile. While the digital version of the booklet is free, you need to pay 19 € for the bound version in glossy paper.
Intel’s Museum of Me, on the other hand, is a virtual exhibition of, well, you. Again using data from your public info it creates 3D gallery views of your photos, friends, words most used on your status updates, etc.
