Are Social Media Sites Like Twitter And Facebook Making Us Rude?

Last week, I had the pleasure of sipping Earl Grey at the Russian Tea Room while listening to Anna Post (Emily’s great-great-granddaughter) and anthropologist Genevieve Bell discuss etiquette as it pertains to technology. The event was hosted by Intel, which just completed a study on tech etiquette that shows that people believe there are unspoken rules when it comes to technology use, but we haven’t been able to agree on what those are.

Anna and Genevieve spoke to these differences in opinion, agreeing that we’re in a transitional period. There’s no clear-cut answer to the question, “Can I use my phone in the bathroom? just yet. Mobile devices and programs, like Facebook and Twitter, are still relatively new, and society needs a little more time to figure out how to be polite about using them. But Anna did share some advice. … Keep reading »

Twitter, The New Public Food Shaming Diet

You know how people say that being held accountable (to others, not just yourself, that is) actually helps weight loss? When you have to show up for a previously scheduled training appointment, you are way more apt to workout than if you just “try” to get to the gym every night. And when you head to, say, one of those Weight Watchers meetings, you are more likely to not overeat because once a week you have to face the music about your daily menus. Now, with the help of Twitter, some people are taking this accountability concept to the Nth degree—Tweet What You Eat, known to its users as twye, is the latest diet craze. The concept is simple: It’s an online food diary where you log absolutely everything you eat and drink. All you have to do is set up an account (or log in if you’re already on Twitter) and start tweeting away. The idea is that if you are forced to write down everything you put in your mouth, for all to see, you’ll think twice about eating that second (or third) slice of cake. Would you try out this online food diary? Or are you more private about your consumption? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

She’s Miley Cyrus And She’s Here To Say … She’s Done With Twitter In A Major Way


When Miley Cyrus shut down her Twitter account last week, most peeps (ourselves included) assumed it was because her new dude told her to. But in the video above, Miley refutes that, saying that she nixed her account because she was sick of documenting the minutest minutiae of her life. She definitely has a point but, uh, did she really have to make this faux rap video complete with her friends as backup dancers? This is more embarrassing than her pole dance, in my opinion.

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Founding Fathers Of Social Networking Sites

Where would we be without social networking sites? We’d never know that the cheerleader who made fun of us in high school got fat, or that the boy who pulled our pigtails in elementary school got married to the girl who gave our boyfriend chlamydia in college. You’d have no idea that the world was so small, that your best friend is currently “totally stressing,” or that your mother knew how to upload pictures. And who do we have to thank for these little joys? The men of MySpace, Twitter, and Facebook, of course, who all happen to be smart, wealthy and hot! Even though Rupert Murdoch (who bought MySpace for $580 million) said the site is for stalkers, and Facebook is rife with Obama haters who want him dead, and Twitter hasn’t earned a single dollar in revenue, these are our boys. And we know just what to do with them.
