7 Proven Ways Facebook Is A Relationship Killer

7 Proven Ways Facebook Is A Relationship Killer

Infidelity comes in many different shapes and sizes. There is the most obvious kind where someone is sneaking around and physically having an affair with someone other than his or her partner. Then there is the emotional kind where you are turning to someone other than your partner to vent about your martial problems, to flirt, and contact them at any hour.

But now there is a new type of affair that is surely to be more common than you might think thanks to social media, and it’s called digital infidelity. It’s much like emotional infidelity except it’s all happening through social media. Read more on YourTango.com…

You May Be Liable For Your Kids’ Facebook Posts

You May Be Liable For Your Kid's Facebook Posts

Parents who don’t already pay close attention to their kids’ Facebook posts may want to start. Georgia’s Court of Appeals says parents may be liable for their children’s online activity after a couple didn’t force their son to delete a defamatory Facebook profile, the Wall Street Journal reports. According to court documents, the boy and another student created the fake page depicting a female classmate back in 2011. Read More On Newser…

Facebook Is Still Deactivating Drag Queens’ Facebook Accounts

Even though Facebook apologized for deactivating drag queens’ accounts after realizing that one person had been on a personal crusade to troll the queens, the site is still continuing to suspend the accounts. Facebook’s Chief Products Officer Chris Cox noted in his apology that the legal-name policy was intended to increase accountability for people who were trolling other Facebook users, which is a nice idea that has ultimately come with more than a little bit of irony.

Facebook is providing measures by which the drag queens can get their accounts reinstated, but it requires them to tell Facebook why their accounts were suspended and why their drag names are, in fact, their authentic names. It’s a lot of trouble to go through for people who haven’t violated Facebook’s policies. Keep reading »

We’re Not Alone, Because Mark Zuckerberg Is Also Hella Paranoid About Catching Ebola

There’s being scared about catching Ebola, and then there’s being SO scared about catching Ebola that you literally try and kill it singlehandedly by donating $25 million dollars to stop that shit.

While we all take precautions by washing our hands and not making out with so many strangers (and things of that nature), Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was basically like, “Oh, hell no. Ebola is not getting to me,” and decided to donate a boatload of money.

He announced his generous donation earlier today in a Facebook post… Keep reading »

Tech Companies Want To Help Female Employees Freeze Their Eggs, But What We Really Need Is Better Paternity Leave

Apple and Facebook are going to start helping female employees cover the cost of freezing their eggs — some employees, anyway; Apple’s benefits vary depending on your position — so that those women don’t have to choose between having a family and working through some of the prime years of their careers.

This is great news for women who want to handle their careers and personal lives one-at-a-time and feel the pressure to sacrifice and compromise their careers in order to have children before they’re no longer fertile. It provides those employees with another option, some more flexibility, and that’s fantastic. But I’m not going crazy over it, especially in Apple’s case, because whereas Facebook also provides male employees with up to 17 weeks of paternity leave, Apple provides women with up to 18 weeks and men with up to six weeks of parental leave.

I’m So Tired Of This Sentimental BS About How Social Media Is Bad For Us

Ironic: This Is Going Viral On Facebook!

Are you buggin’, Prince Ea? Yes. You are buggin’. Social media is not that bad. I am seriously about to headdesk over here over the critiques this video for “Can We Auto Correct Humanity?” poses.

Let me tell you a story about my childhood. When I was very young, my dad commuted by train, and my mom was still at home with us. After my sister and I came home from school, the three of us would go to meet my dad at the train station. Charming image, isn’t it? My dad would then routinely proceed to blow right past us because he was so absorbed in the book he was reading. Keep reading »
