I was just screengrabbing the new feature.) Could you see yourself using Facebook’s “I’m expecting” option or is that too impersonal for you? [Today] Keep reading »

I guess I’m banned. But before I accept my fate and disconnect from the internet entirely, here are 15 other reasons why the rest of you should be banned from the Internet (too). Keep reading »
