Me and a group of friends on Twitter decided to get together to start a campaign with the hashtag #1in5Muslims to show that the vast majority of Muslims are just really normal people who oppose the abhorrent views of Isis and the like and with many mocking the survey with jokes and made-up facts.
Beauty advertisers are forever selling products to empower women; we need this lipstick because "we're worth it", and if we buy this mascara we're making a statement. But with beauty advertisers using make-up as a means of empowerment, the question is - are we as women still being defined by traditional ideas of femininity?
It's argued we're becoming less sociable, more depressed, and that social media is corroding traditionally formed relationships, resulting in a rise in mental health issues, especially in young people.
Facebook selling sites. An annoying yet necessary element of modern parenting... So, here written down for all the delusionals are the top ways to NOT to conduct yourself on selling sites.
This loss hurt me. Because it was a friend I had known for many years and though we are not close any more, and indeed have not seen each other for some time, we still connected through social media and I felt that he was still in my life a little bit in that way. So I was sad when I saw he had decided to un-follow me.
I have a confession to make. I'm tired. Tired of rebutting the same old clichés and contradictions that you and your rabid CAPS LOCK brigade constantly spout every time something like the awful events in Paris last week occur. So I've decided to do us both a favour and bring a dispel a few of those repetitive falsehoods you're so fond of.
The attempts by some to understandably deconstruct political events and reactions will be made in vain, when some will see such attempts as unnecessarily intellectualised responses. We are not all on the same wavelength when using social media.
Having followed the debates on the news and on social media in Poland and in the UK about the atrocious terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday 13 Novemb...
I guess my true issue here is with Glamour, this award alone generates a lot of exposure in the media, so Glamour have the opportunity to use this award to value the women in our society that are saving lives, overcoming tragic illnesses and poverties, inventing amazing things and dying for their country like Moira Smith. Instead of continuously acknowledging celebrities, this is a real chance to every now and then appreciate and bring to light the unsung heroes.

Do we now think of news to back up our own beliefs? To me standing with France does not mean overlooking any prolonging of sufferings in war zone and non-war zones, but the mourning of victims everywhere. Ma solidarité la plus profonde avec les victimes. Toutes les victimes all over the world. Viva Peace!
We're using technology for everything from controlling our energy usage, to arranging casual hook-ups. In a time where we're bombarded with tweets, likes and shares, how do we cut through, and essentially, what does it mean to be human in the digital age?
I have witnessed and heard several slammings of the French Tricolour profile picture on Facebook and the sharing of the 'Peace for Paris' symbol with some questioning, 'How does this even help?' Are you kidding?
While the Charlie Hebdo attacks were a direct assault on a particular value, the latest attacks are far less clear cut in this respect, and therefore require a more considered response, rather than simply saying, "I will always stand up for the principle of freedom of speech."
When did we all get so self-righteous about tragedy? We should not forgot what happened in Lebanon the night before the Paris attacks, but there is no...
Please don't just change your picture because it's the latest internet trend. Solidarity isn't about changing your profile picture. It's too easy to do that. It's about changing your attitude and uniting with everyone. It's deeply screwed up and scary to think that if I changed my profile picture every time there is lives lost at the hands of extremism, I would be changing it every day.
