Thanks to Facebook we’re all looking at photos of our friends and family pretty much constantly. In some ways, this has made people better at taking and posing for photos — most of us know which side is our good side and which activities we probably shouldn’t document online — but it’s also highlighted some really awkward and annoying poses that, for whatever reason, are still going strong. Here are 10 popular photo poses we totally wouldn’t miss (full disclosure: I’m totally guilty of every single one of these). Feel free to add your own nominations in the comments! Keep reading »

Does His Single Facebook Status Matter?

We have been dating for two years now, already talking about marriage. A year ago I changed my facebook relationship status into “in the relationship.” He didn’t. He is still single in Facebook. I never brought this up as it is sounds childish. Two months ago I changed mine into “single.” I figured why would I when he doesn’t care about these stuff.

Is this so immature that I want everyone in the world to know that we are in love? Read more …

I use Facebook primarily for three reasons: To chat with my family members who live out of state, to share links of animals doing stupid cute things and occasionally, to stalk. I’m not talking about stalking exes, I’m not into that at all. I usually hide or unfriend them within moments of the breakup. I’m no masochist and looking at exes makes you feel like crap. I only engage in fun stalking. The kind that makes me feel good about myself. I like to creep on FB friends that I should probably unfriend. I just can’t because I enjoy following their every virtual move so much. After the jump, the Facebook friends you really should keep just for the hell of it. Keep reading »

Now, Even Your Clothes Hangers Will Feature Facebook

Watch Video

Facebook is everywhere, all the time — and now, it’ll be able to follow you into the mall, even if you don’t have a smart phone. That’s because new retail technology has created digitized hangers that are linked up to Facebook. Every time someone “likes” an article of clothing online, the hanger updates the number of likes the piece of clothing receives in real time. That way, if you’re shopping alone, you can still crowdsource your outfit. Choosing between two leather jackets, for example? The digital hanger will allow you to use one more metric in deciding. Maybe you’ll choose the one with more Facebook likes, figure retailers. So far, the system is being tested out in Brazil. But one possible glitch that’s already been discussed? When people put the right clothing back on the wrong hanger. For the fashionably insecure, that’s sure to spell disaster. [Mashable]

Last week, we shared some of our biggest Facebook friend dealbreakers. You know, like Thou Shalt Not Post Status Updates About Your Child’s Poop. Stuff like that. This week, there’s a study about how to keep people from unfriending you (in case you haven’t been able to figure it out on your own). A survey conducted at Arizona State University and published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships found that to keep your Facebook friendships intact you should respond to messages, avoid disrespecting people and don’t post photos that are going to embarrass or offend. More specifically: Wish your FB friends a happy birthday, don’t stalk, don’t post your highly personal emo poetry and take it easy on the inside jokes. These “rules” vary slightly by  age group and may shift depending on how close you are to a Facebook friend in real life. But generally speaking, these unspoken rules all fall under the umbrella of “Don’t be a douche.” Any further questions? [Live Science]
