Facebook Makes A Fuss About Breastfeeding

Along with adults in Santa hats and Scientology, fury over women breastfeeding in public and in photos is something I just don’t understand. The latest breast feeding scandal comes courtesy of Facebook, which removed photos of mothers nursing their babies from their personal pages. More than 58,000 people have joined a Facebook group called “Hey, Facebook, breastfeeding is not obscene!” to protest the censorship of the photos. “Whether there’s a nipple exposed or not, female breasts, specifically in the context of breast-feeding, should not be considered obscene,” says Stephanie Muir, one of the group’s administrators. I completely agree — feeding and nourishing a child through breastfeeding is one of the most natural things on earth and just because the body part she uses to do so has been sexualized in other ways by society, doesn’t mean the act of nursing is sexual or obscene. Hey Facebook, why don’t you spend a little more time dealing with all the pro-rape “flair” on your site instead? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Facebook Group Not Sure If It’s On Crazy Pills or Just Hates Nicole Kidman

Poor Nicole Kidman. Just when everything was looking up for her — a new baby, a seemingly happy marriage to successfully-rehabbed Keith Urban, a starring role in an epic film about her native Australia alongside fellow countryman and People’s sexiest man alive, Hugh Jackman — a bunch of meanies with nothing better to do started a Facebook group called Am I Taking Crazy Pills or Is Nicole Kidman the Worst Actress in the World? While it’s too early to tell if the group’s cruel intentions will be enough to drive Nic into indefinite hiding with Sunday Rose and her favorite feathered-hair crooner, for the sake of cinema let’s hope she never reads any of the group’s choice comments … Keep reading »

Facebook Will Kick You While You’re Down

Hey, see that ad to the left? Kind of sad huh? I woke up on my 29th birthday (last Sunday), checked my Facebook profile for birthday well-wishers and saw that ad glaring back at me! It’s been there, non-stop practically, all week, a not-so-subtle reminder that two months prior to my 29th birthday, my fiance broke up with me and I became, yes, ALONE AGAIN. If the accuracy of this particular targeted ad wasn’t so freakishly detailed (how on earth did the tech bots know “a man suddenly pulled away”???) to the point of hilarity, it might actually make me depressed. After the jump, more targeted ad bull crap, on Facebook and Google. Keep reading »

What Your Facebook Status Says About You

The other day, when my 57-year-old mother asked if I could show her how to set up a Facebook profile, I realized just how pervasive the site has become. Unlike most of its competitors and predecessors, Facebook attracts users from a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and walks of life. As likely as you are to find a long lost roommate on the site, you’re just as liable to run into former flames, old co-workers, current employers, people you never thought you’d hear from again and those you wish you wouldn’t. So do you ever wonder what your Facebook status says about you to all these people — the single line or two that basically expresses who you are today, how you live, what’s important in your life? After the jump, 10 fairly innocuous status updates and how various Facebook friends may interpret them. Keep reading »

    Facebook Relationship Status Change Ends In Tragedy

    Last week I changed my relationship status on Facebook from “engaged” to “single”, since I had decided my break was now a breakup. Emma Forrester, a married woman in the U.K., changed her status to single too, only her husband responded by hacking her to death with a meat cleaver. Wayne Forrester told police he had been provoked by his wife changing her marital status on her Facebook entry, and had taken copious amounts of cocaine and alcohol before the murder. He’s been jailed for a minimum of 14 years. There’s really nothing I can say about this, because it’s insanely f–ked up. [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »

    QR Codes May Change The Way We Pick Up People At Bars

    You know those QR codes that Ralph Lauren Rugby is using so you can use your phone to buy clothes instantly? Well, a couple designers have a new idea about how to use them. Marguerite Charmante and Wolfgeng Peter Schmiller put QR codes on a dress, and, hypothetically, a guy could see a girl waiting for a drink at the bar and scan the code on her dress using his phone. Instantly, he could be directed to her Facebook page (or blog, or whatever website she wanted), and he could assess whether or not he wanted to go after her. Just another way technology could help us become creepy stalkers! [Make] Keep reading »
