It’s time to Shock the Web!

It’s no surprise that Firefox 3.5 is already causing a ruckus on Twitter… but that’s just the beginning!


We hope the social media blitz will continue over the next 24 hours as we watch the Shiretoko Shock travel around the world.

The idea for the Shock came from Prashanth, one of our Mozilla Campus Reps, and we put a campaign together in just a few days so that the Mozilla community and fans everywhere could participate during our launch.

We’re hoping everyone will tweet, blog, share, post, etc. on their favorite social media channels at 3:50pm in their time zone, starting in South America at 3:50pm BRT (11:50am PDT) today.  Every part of the world will get a chance to share their thoughts on the new Firefox 3.5 as the Shock travels west around the globe.

We’ll come together 24 hours later at 3:50pm BRT (Brazil Time) on Wednesday, July 1st for the “Super Shock”!  At that time, we want the entire world to help us Shock the Web at the same time.

It should be interesting… so get ready to get your Shock on!
