I’m not big on Snapchat. I see the appeal and understand why people use it, but I personally think that when you have more than one person on your list of contacts, the risks drastically outweigh the rewards. Because of my lack of social conformity, I haven’t had the opportunity to experience the debate between [...]

A woman who was left in a Burger King bathroom as a baby 27 years ago has embarked on a search for her biological mother. According to Daily Mail, Katheryn Deprill was nicknamed the “Burger King Baby” after she was found wrapped in a shirt, crying on the bathroom floor of a Burger King in [...]
When I see “Happy birthday!” posted on someone’s Facebook timeline, I want to punch myself in the dick.
Okay, this Ellen DeGeneres selfie has officially taken on a life of its own. Just when you think the parodies of it are stale… We saw the hilarious “Simpsons” one, and now we found a whole new little, yellow group to do it. I am of course talking about Legos. With the huge success of [...]
My time with my phone is fairly well mapped out. For commuting and second-screening, I have Twitter. There’s Facebook to distract me from work and sometimes Instagram if I’m in the mood to see other people make their lives look better through an automatic filter. Viber helps me communicate with friends abroad, plain old SMS to talk with friends in…
James Franco is the most meta celebrity in existence. His every act is performance art, and whether it be through roasts, social media or just being a weirdo at any opportunity, Franco is on his Franconstein, feeling like the world is his mind. And it is. Now Franco will introduce Francofest, a movie festival featuring [...]
New reports suggest that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) may be monitoring your social media accounts to see if you’ve been cheating on your taxes. Russia Today reports that Kristen Matthews, an attorney at a law firm that specializes in privacy and data security, has cited several unconfirmed reports that the IRS will be checking [...]
They say laughter is the best medicine, and Laurie Kilmartin has been curing the world one tweet at a time, even if she can’t cure her dad. Kilmartin, “Conan” writer and comedian, is live-tweeting funny/tragic things about her dad’s battle with lung cancer, in an effort to make light/deal with a very difficult situation. She is [...]
Twitter has become an invaluable source of networking and information over the past few years, but it isn’t perfect. As great as it is to have an outlet to share every fleeting thought and personal opinion, occasionally (due to drugs, alcohol or your own stupidity) you’ll say something that you probably shouldn’t have said. While [...]
Me: Did you see “True Detective”? Dad: No, I’ll catch the replay Me: I don’t understand. Why don’t you get a DVR? Dad: Because I don’t want a DVR. At this point in the conversation, my head swells until I morph into something that looks like the angry strawberry from that old Gushers commercial. Why [...]
It began when writer Alexander Chee made a simple, obvious statement in an interview with the literary organization PEN: Trains are great places to write. “I wish Amtrak had residencies for writers,” he said.
I’m not a kid anymore (unless you’re being very charitable with your age guidelines), but I can only assume today’s parents are telling their kids “Facebook will rot yer brains.” In fact, the opposite might be true, according to a teeny, tiny little study from England. Especially for kids with dyslexia.

Social media has a tendency to steer things in weird directions, and very quickly at that. The app Forever or Not presents a couple, and invites users to swipe right to vote that the couple will split (within 30 days) or left to vote that the pair will last. The app uses Facebook relationships to [...]
Have an idea you want to share on the Internet? Well now there’s a platform for that! Along with… every other social platform around the sole purpose of which is to share your thoughts. But now there’s a website whose entire sharing mechanism is about “ideas,” whatever that means. The site is called Ideapod. It’s based in New York,…
Sylvain Labs put together this fascinating documentary concerning one of the most integral forms of social media: Instagram. Labs interviewed Shawn Megira, a 15-year-old from Long Island. Megira has over 81,000 followers on Instagram. This type of fame has no real rhyme or reason; people gain widespread notoriety for being attractive, and for the interesting [...]
With so many social media management platforms it’s difficult to keep track. There’s Hootsuite, Sprout Social, Radian6, to name a few. In general they offer the same core product — an easy way to channel, filter, and diffuse social content for brands. But, of course, the war rages on about which is best. Today, New York-based Sprinklr announced that…

The most shocking part of “Generation Like,” PBS’s new Frontline documentary about youth media culture, occurs when a bunch of teenagers confess they don’t know what the term “sell-out” means. This term, so vital to the identities of at least three generations that had come before them, didn’t register as something negative. In fact, it didn’t register at all. If you hear a loud crunching noise at around 10pm tonight, don’t worry. It’s just a bunch of old people wringing their hands in unison.
Every Instagram user has felt it: that warming, joyful sensation when you come across a successfully filtered photo with which you really just connect. I usually experience it when @matchesfashion posts a picture of a designer shoe I can’t afford. For others, though, these photos have led to a more real — and hopefully lasting [...]
