Most yoga classes start out with a request to turn off or silence your cellphones, and a tacit understanding that if you do pull out your wireless device during class, you’re going to get some disapproving looks from the teacher and your classmates. As was the case during a lunchtime yoga class at Facebook headquarters, when a female employee started typing on her phone during a half moon pose. The teacher, Alice Van Ness, shot her a stern glance. Two weeks later, Van Ness was fired from her job… Keep reading »

Pretty much every day a new study comes out affirming what we already know: Facebook is turning us into quivering piles of insecurity who can barely muster the emotional strength to hit the “share” button on the latest version of the “Ermahgerd” meme. The latest findings come courtesy of the UK’s University of Salford, where researchers polled 298 social media users, half of which indicated that their use of social media negatively impacts their life. Respondents described dips in self-esteem after comparing themselves to their online friends, feelings of anxiety when they were unable to log on to social media sites, and trouble sleeping after spending time in their online social world. Intense huh? This study has a fairly small sample size, but still, it underscores the fact that we’re constantly connecting with people online, and constantly comparing ourselves to others’ online personas–it’s a recipe for a self-esteem disaster. Hopefully there’s a way to maintain a healthy self image in this crazy new world we live in. Have you ever experienced social media anxiety? [Mashable]

We all have dodgy photos of our friends on our phones in embarrassing or damn near blackmail-worthy positions. But a survey of 1,500 people has shown that one-fourth of women say they’ve posted unflattering pic of their friends on Facebook on purpose. Yup, on purpose. The most common reason a “friend” posted a picture of her gal pal doing bong hits in the church parking lot is exactly what you think it would be: sweet, sweet revenge. So party carefully when there’s cameras around, especially if you’ve recently committed an act of treachery. Sigh. The older I get, the more aware I am the word “friend” is greatly overused.  [The Daily]

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 …
