Poking Nicolas Sarkozy, Retweeting the Dalai Lama. Would Princess Diana Really Have Used Social Media?

THE SHOT — Even though right before her untimely death, Princess Diana was growing weary of her lack of privacy fueled by the public’s unquenchable thirst for tabloid fare, Newsweek editor and former gal pal, Tina Brown envisions a 50-year-old Diana as a social media maven in this week’s issue of the magazine.

But if Diana were alive now, do you think she would be Tweeting about AIDS research and world hunger? No, she would be doing something about it. Newsweek also photoshopped a Facebook profile for the Princess. Check it out on the next page.

Princess Diana a fan of Anderson Cooper and Colin Firth we can see but Real Housewives of New York? And a relationship status publicly listed as complicated? Getting poked by handsome world leaders? Accepting Camilla Parker Bowles’ friend request? Tasteless knowing how much the princess yearned for her privacy.
