Social media has taken over the scariest day of the year, according to the fifth annual Halloween Survey from Savers thrift stores. Savers tells us that more than 60 percent of their respondents who use social media such as Facebook and Twitter are influenced in their costume choices by those media. So expect to see lots of people dressed up like Mark Zuckerberg this month.
The survey also reports that movie-themed costumes are likely to be dominated by Disney’s Frozen, closely followed by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the latest X-Men film. That’s not surprising, considering that more than 50 percent of the parents let their children pick their own costumes.
