In news that will make you groan, people STILL get upset about women breastfeeding in public places. In Terre Haute, Indiana, for example, one young woman was publicly shamed by a man who took a photo of her (without her knowledge, yuck) breastfeeding in a T.G.I Friday’s. He then uploaded it to Facebook and Instagram. Read More
Along the right side of your Facebook homepage—among the sponsored ads of things you don’t need and the trending topics you don’t really care about—is the often perplexing list of People You May Know. These people could include: a friend of a friend who you saw at a party, your mom’s cousin, or the neighbor’s dog. This list is the product of a complex algorithmic web, and sometimes it's no big deal. But other times, it can knock the wind right out of you. Kevin Kantor got gut punched by People You May Know.

Yet another frat has failed to surprise us with their disgusting behavior, this time unleashing their brazen stupidity in the not-so-private world of the Internet. Penn State's Kappa Delta Rho's "2.0" Facebook page—which shared members' pictures of nude, unconscious women, drugs, and hazing with its 144 members—has been under police investigation since mid-January. The frat's first site (so cleverly named “Covert Business Transactions") featured similar images and was discovered and dismantled last year. Read More
Yup, that’s right.  This just took the VCC (Vulvar Clitoral Complex, let's make that a thing okay?) to another level. If you’re an open-minded/bare-all-and-don’t-give-a-shit-who-sees-it kind of person, these clit-themed Mac and PC track pads (3 sizes: small, medium, and large) are definitely one way to make that known. So. Here they are. Drawbacks: This item doesn’t really feature a diverse or realistic range of vaginas. Read More
Trolls beware: the days of harassment on social media might be a thing of your sad, sad past and, no, you can’t just hide away under a bridge behind your laptop—there probably isn’t WiFi under there anyway. As of today, the team at Facebook is looking to clear up those fuzzy lines of their community standards, giving users better-defined guidelines for sharing and posting on the service. “We’re trying to strike the balance based on the way our community works,” Monika Bickert, Facebook’s head of global policy management, said in an interview.

Yes that’s right, Facebook has created a 'feeling Fat’ emoji option. As you may already know, when you post your status, Facebook gives you an option to show to your friends (the world, Mark Zuckerberg, etc.) just how you feel in that moment. They even allow you to create your own if the 120 options they give you do not fit your particular mood at that time.  However, this double-chinned emoji has raised quite a few other feelings on Facebook and outside of it. So many that an official petition on Change. Read More
In sinister technology news, Facebook has announced that it will allow users to choose a “steward” to inherit their account when they die. The question is, who would be the best person to maintain your online ‘legacy’ once you’re gone? According to this new policy whoever is chosen as the “digital heir” will be able to: “[..]post an obituary, update information such as profile and cover photos, respond to new friend requests and moderate posts and messages left on the profile.

As we stumble into the beginning of yet another year, we are bombarded with list after list of what to look forward to in 2015 on our Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr accounts. I don’t even want to talk about it.  I am an anxious person who enjoys pop culture. So, when a new year comes along, instead of being excited about new TV shows and movies and books, I get upset, because I am now even further from all the things I have yet to watch and listen to and read.

The ladies of Pussy Riot are at it again. This time, however, they won’t be found at Christ the Savior Cathedral punking out in protest, and their balaclava’s need not be worn – their new project is all about transparency. Started in September in collaboration with The Guardian’s New East network, MediaZona is Pussy Riot’s latest endeavor post jail time. Read More
  Hundreds of men and women gathered in the Kenyan capitol, Nairobi, to protest the attack on a woman "guilty" of wearing a miniskirt in public.   The protestors handed out flowers and chanted, “Shame on you,” at the bus stop in Nairobi’s Central Business District, where the attack took place. Multiple men cornered the woman in the street, tore off her clothes and forced her onto the ground, all as a result for her personal choice in clothing that day. The Facebook group, Kilimani Mums, organized the event, calling it “MyDressMyChoice". Read More
