Juror Faces Jail Time For Friend Requesting Defendant

Things not to do if you are a juror in a high profile case: friend request the defendant on Facebook. That’s exactly what British woman Joanne Fraill did and the action may just land her in jail for being in contempt of court. Fraill was a juror in a drug case with four defendants. After one of them was acquitted—a 34-year-old woman named Jamie Sewart—Fraill found her on Facebook and struck up a conversation. Apparently, she felt for Sewart. Keep reading »

Decoding A Man’s Facebook Profile: 10 Red Flags

Woman Inks Her Entire Social Network On Her Arm

This Dutch woman loves her Facebook friends so much that she decided to get color photos of all 152 of them tattooed on her arm. What an innovative idea! Now she will have her entire social network with her wherever she goes. But on the other hand, one of them may unfriend her. Or change their profile photo. Or get old. Or decide Facebook is stupid. What happens then? [Flavorwire]

Update: You’ll be relieved to know that no one is really crazy enough to tattoo 152 Facebook friends on her arm. This video was a big, fat hoax. The ink you see is called a “transfer tattoo.” It washes off in a couple of days. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Flirting Over Social Media? That’s Micro-Infidelity

Anthony Weiner’s transgressions over Facebook and Twitter far exceed the ways my ex-boyfriend violated my trust, I nevertheless feel some woman-to-woman solidarity with Weiner’s wife, State Department aide Huma Abedin. She, too, is likely wondering where on the relativity scale — from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hidden love child(ren) to dick pic tweets — she should classify the way her partner was unfaithful to her.

Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg On Women Underestimating Themselves In The Workplace

“We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not looked over and ignored … I encourage you to think big. Studies show very clearly that in our country in the college-educated part of the population, men are more ambitious than women. They’re more ambitious the day they graduate college; they remain ambitious every step along the career path. We will never close the achievement gap until we close the ambition gap. But if all young women start to lean in, we can close the ambition gap right here, right now, if every single one of you leans in. Leadership belongs to those who take it. Leadership belongs to you.”
