I have had Twitter users, including people hiding behind egg profiles or pseudonym Twitter names tell me that I am a rapist (with some description), someone waiting to bomb the community and evil white-hating filth. I have been told to f*** off home, swim back to my totalitarian third world cesspool... With the two main political parties facing splits and leadership contests, we need strong leadership in this country. We need MPs from all parties and from both Remain and Leave camps to condemn the racist acts of a few. We need a message of unity; that the spirit of tolerance of the many will overcome the fear and marginalisation created by the few.
Remember in this life there is only one of you, so comparisons are pointless. You are you. Full Stop. And remembering when looking at anything on line, on TV or in magazines, just remind yourself this is not reality unless of course they say #nofilter......
At the EU referendum, around 75% of 18-24 year-olds voted to remain in the EU, and possibly even a higher number of 16-17 year olds would have too. Why are we not getting our voices heard? More young people should become involved, which would force the politicians to consider our views when making decisions.
From the outset the Leave campaign was the most talked about - consistently generating around 55-70% of all conversation about the referendum. On polling day itself - for the first and only time in the six-week campaign it was suddenly the Remain camp which led the conversation.
Sports brands and organisations can use social media, not only as a way to keep fans updated with the latest news, but to get others interested in sports. It's not just about promoting the team, and by extension its brand, it's about having conversations that build lasting relationships with people. Using social media, sports stars, teams and brands can keep fans invested in sport all year round.
"You're a gay-loving prick". The final words of a man who - so poisoned by hatred - continued to utter such bile as he was taken, handcuffed, to a police car. My partner and I had spent the previous twenty minutes trying to tackle his backward views but also keep him in place until the police arrived.
Hi, my name is Paul Klein; and I'm in a band, that you've probably never heard of, called LANY. Recently, we wrote a song titled "where the hell are my friends." I knew that loneliness was a very #relatable sentiment, but it wasn't until we released the song that I understood its actual scope. Loneliness is an epidemic of the internet generation. It's sad, it's interesting, and it's very real.
Bosses need to work harder at learning to 'speak human,' sounding like real people who are dealing with the issues in a realistic way, being more honest about the problems they face, instead of simply repeating a series of 'key messages' in interviews while avoiding the tough questions.
According to research from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford, social media is used each week by more than half (51%) of online news consumers to find, discuss and share, news content.
Children can be curious, determined and lightening quick. They can get up to all sorts in the blink of an eye. Who hasn't experienced that heart-pounding moment when you've turned around only to find them gone? Even if it's for 10 seconds, it is a scary and desperate moment.
While my travels have been daunting at times, there was one thing that remained familiar and readily available: social media. What was even more surprising? The notion that people just like me were now packing up their bags and making a living off the very platforms that served as my lifeline in unfamiliar territory.
I just wanted to impress my new French friends I like kick-offs. In football stadiums. Where they belong. It's the unofficial ones where people kick...
There's more to the world than Facebook comments of course, but there's also so many voices not being heard too. And if you don't speak out, then you won't get listened too, continuing the cycle of decisions made by and for white men.
In Britain, it's a mixed story of trust in media. The Edelman Trust Barometer - an annual survey of how much we believe the major institutions which govern our lives will "do the right thing"- suggests a large number of us simply don't.
I don't often wake at my parent's house these days but this past Sunday I did. Staggering downstairs bleary eyed for breakfast my Mother handed me a cup of tea and asked me if I had seen the news from Orlando. Accessing the Twitter news feed, it took me no longer than a few seconds to ascertain that something dreadful was unfolding in Orlando.
Today's amazing technology means we can easily keep in touch with friends and family abroad and share our life experiences with our nearest and dearest, but it comes at a price. Our text conversations have jumped over to real life as we shun the use of please and thank you and speak in abbreviations.
