On Facebook

Australian journalist Paul Ewart recently asked Elvis' ex-wife, Priscilla Presley, if she thought the King would be active online today.

Here's what she had to say: "I could not see him doing that at all ... He just never got into the fame thing ... He did what he was supposed to do, but he wasn't into it.

"He was a very private person. We joked about this before with some of the inner circle, saying that 'Elvis would never be on Facebook.'" Seems like more of a Twitter guy.

On Instagram

Elvis might not have ever been on Facebook, but Justin Timberlake is certainly on Instagram.

His famous voting-booth selfie brought Tennessee legislators one step closer to making Tennessee voting-booth selfies the next big thing.

The Timberlake-inspired bill, legalizing regulated use of smartphones and cameras in polling places, passed in the Senate 30-0 and will be addressed by the House this week.

On Easter

WalletHub, the personal finance website, said Memphis is the 12th best city in America for celebrating Easter.

We're not really sure what to do with that information, but if a good Easter experience is key to your company's potential relocation to the Bluff City, we're No. 12!

On Something

Fly on the Wall gets a lot of mail from public relations specialists who hope I'll write about them in my column. Take for example this highly effective press release advertising "explosive sales" for the new Samsung Galaxy. Bless their hearts, they mean well.
