First there was Facebook, then Twitter. But the latest internet trend is something rather more bizarre than microblogging.

Bed-jumping, the newest craze to hit the web, has seen hundreds of people post images of themselves jumping on beds on a blog hosted by a hotel review site.

Each more extreme and creative than the last, the photographs and videos on hotelsbycity.net show hotel guests using their beds as a trampoline.

The site's creators describe the activity as 'completely intoxicating'.

It reads: 'Bed-Jumping is all about creating an exciting and entertaining hotel space. Our mission is to ensure that all the content on the site comes from you - real hotel guests. We love your images, and thousands of viewers every day love them too.'

How do we take pictures of bed-jumping?

Keys: first, you'd better be capable of taking candid pictures and be able to capture the movement when jumpers are in the air; second, turn on the flashlight and take the photo with high-speed shutter.
