The first living organism beyond the occasional teenager to rely solely on social media for survival is the Meet Eater plant. That plant was a social experiment by a student at the University of Queensland in Australia, designed to promote the relationship between humans and plants.

The plant is "watered" when physical contact is applied, and nutrients are given when you "hang out" with it on Facebook. If too much attention is given to it the Meet Eater plant however, it will politely request some quiet time, so it isn't smothered with affection.
