Flash mob-a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, artistic expression.
How Does It Work?
Flash Mobs are initiated online. The organizers set up a website, mailing list, and/or a viral message that provides all necessary instructions for potential participants. This of course includes the date, time, and meeting point in the real world, as well as the action to perform, for example a video of the dance moves.
On October 28, 2011, Cagayan de Oro had its first ever flash mob through the efforts of a group called CDO Tycoons. The participants gathered at SM City where they surprised the shoppers and mall goers with the sudden performance at the Atrium.
This won’t be the last as I heard another Flash Mob happening soon! This time it’s going to be a Pre-Christmas Flash Mob. Chadacdo is surely looking forward to it.
