"Ikea? Is Time Travel Possible? Is There Life After Death?

We anthropomorphize animals, so it makes sense that we’d anthropomorphize websites, too. And as someone who spends approximately 1,340,000 hours online every day, I can wholly appreciate the spot-on human representations of these sites. I mean, of course Facebook would change her outfit, like, a zillion times a day. And Twitter would just ramble on about the most inconsequential stuff. And yup, Kickstarter would be super, duper annoying and WebMD would diagnose an illness that you didn’t ever have. [Cracked]

How To Get Your Ex To Notice You On Facebook

Facebook. How did we exist before it? How did you define ourselves, our relationships with friends and/or boyfriends? How did we let people know, on a large scale, that yes, you ate the four-day-old Chinese food, and now your head is in the toilet while you throw up everything you’ve consumed in the last 48 hours? How would we know that your two-year-old is officially potty-trained, but decided it should play with its shit one last time? How did we do it? Oh, we didn’t. That’s so sad for us.

Over-sharers, attention whores and braggers could not have asked for anything more awesome than the invention of Facebook. It’s become the go-to for revealing oneself and maybe even tossing things in other people’s face. But it’s cool; everyone does it.

And if everyone does it, don’t you owe it to yourself to maybe take advantage of Facebook in regards to getting the attention of your ex? If you’re lucky enough to have parted ways amicably without any blocking done, why wouldn’t you want to pull some “Look at me! Look at me! I’m so awesome without you!” action?

You’d be weird to NOT want to do such a childish thing. Read more…

The seemingly diverse and random things we like on Facebook, from hard rock bands to politicians to “napping,” might be giving away a lot more information about us than we realize. Researchers at Cambridge University were able to accurately predict people’s gender, race, sexual orientation, and age based on Facebook likes alone. Some of the findings are kind of obvious–people who like Barack Obama are usually liberal? You don’t say!–but other findings are much more interesting. Check out a few choice tidbits after the jump!

Breast Cancer Survivors Tell Their Stories Through Mastectomy Tattoos

Perhaps you missed this, but last week, Facebook was in a tizzy over a topless photo of a breast cancer survivor showing off her chest tattoo. The piece was meant as a celebration of her survival and a means of covering up her mastectomy scars, but Facebook classified the image as “pornographic.” The company’s official stance on photos says that Facebook  “aspires to respect people’s right to share content of personal importance, whether those are photos of a sculpture like Michelangelo’s David or family photos of a child breastfeeding.” Keep reading »

When doctors told Jerry Wilde he would need another kidney transplant, he knew his rare blood type made for a precarious prognosis. “I thought, ‘Well this just isn’t going to happen,’” he says. “‘I’m just going to wither away.’” But everything changed when he mentioned his search for a new kidney on Facebook: Leah Hostalet, an acquaintance, saw the post and set up a page called, “Find A Kidney For Jerry,” which her friend Becky Melton happened upon while she was absentmindedly browsing Facebook one day. Becky had never met Jerry, but she was inspired by the chance to help someone in need, and after discovering the two were a positive match, she decided to give him her kidney. The transplant took place in 2012, and Jerry has been healthy ever since.

The successful match made Leah, the one who set up the Facebook page, realize how social media could transform the donor match process, so she started Find A Kidney Central, a Facebook page where those in need of a kidney could use the expansive social network to find a donor. The page has been up for a year, and matched up donors for 38 transplants so far. “My plans are to keep this page running and spread as much awareness as possible,” says Leah. “I’ll take it wherever it leads me. I feel like I’m meant to do this.” Say it with me now: “Awwww!” It’s so good to be reminded that Facebook can be used for more than just stalking exes and posting pictures of waffles. [People]

Do Not Want For Valentine’s Day: A Starbucks Gift Card Courtesy Of Facebook

Just a friendly reminder to all of you lovers out there that not every  kind of gift is appropriate for the Valentine’s Day holiday. This Facebook suggestion was sent to me by an engaged friend of mine. Really, Facebook? The best you can do is suggest that a woman “surprise” her fiancé with a Starbucks gift card this Valentine’s Day? Nothing against Starbucks — or coffee even — I’m a caffeine addict. But if I had a special someone and he surprised me with a Starbucks gift card, that would be, well, odd. Add this to the list of V-Day presents that will not get you laid. Oh, and “the gift of cancer screening.” It’s a real thing. I got a PR email about it. Not OK.

Remember the Jim Carrey/Kate Winslet movie “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”? How many times have we all wished we could totally erase our exes, right? Well, thanks to the app Killswitch, you actually can, at least virtually. Killswitch does all the annoying ex-erasing work for you. Users simply pick the offending ex from their Facebook friends list, and Killswitch does the rest — untagging them from photos and removing all mention of them from your status updates forever. Or until you get back together — whichever comes first.

So, it has come to this. Facebook can be an indicator of your psychological state, says a new study done at the University of Missouri. More than 200 college students were asked to print out their Facebook activity and given the option to redact anything they chose from their timeline. The portions that they concealed were just as psychologically revealing as what they opted to share, the researchers found.

“The Internet is novel way to study human psychology because it can ameliorate some of the self-report biases associated with paper-and-pencil reports … Because of the real or imagined perception of anonymity, the Internet may allow unique access to the psyche,” said researcher Elizabeth Martin.

The mental health “findings” ranged from social anhedonia –people with a reduced desire to interact with others — to paranoia. Although therapists aren’t currently using Facebook as a diagnostic tool, they may start doing so in the future. Great. There’s no safe place to be crazy anymore. I wonder what it means if I post mostly stuff that I wrote on my timeline. That I’m a narcissist? [Mashable]
