The average attention span of society is now down to just seven seconds. It takes you longer to tie your shoelaces. Lucky for slip-ons, otherwise we would have a whole bunch of people with half tied laces tripping over in the streets.
I had only been having dinner with my cousin, Andy, while we watched the recent Vice Documentary where President Obama made a visit to a federal priso...
What's strange and a bit scary is we don't have much offline community anymore. We definitely need more of a sense of community - the real kind, not the cyberspace kind - or I really worry this world is going to get even more fudged up.
The world around is changing and I can't wait to see what the future brings. But does that mean it has to be at the expense of social interaction? The laughter heard between friends? Or the touch of a loved ones skin? You can be anyone online but in real-life you have no option but to be you.
did the big chop about three years ago, and I did so not because of any social trend, or to be in touch with my roots but rather because I became aware of the dangerous side effects. And I can tell you today, I do not feel anymore Ghanaian today than I did on that day because, as my girl India Arie sings beautifully, I am not my hair.
We regularly bring you examples of ways in which everyone from politicians to celebrities and even 'normal people' have managed to make spectacular bl...
Though a long tradition it is one that has been proved wrong so many times and perhaps represents a greater threat to our future well-being than the technologies of which it is so fearful.
What has happened since the campaign was at its peak has been that people are taking a picture of themselves with a high five and writing a message with it. These messages range from people describing their anxiety levels that day, to how they've personally overcome anxiety and the giving of advice to others. And you know what? People are connected and continue to connect.
We can all learn a lesson from Mean Girls here: "Calling somebody else fat won't make you any skinnier. Calling someone stupid doesn't make you any smarter. And ruining [someone else's] life definitely didn't make me any happier."
I refuse to accept that today is 'No Bra Day'. As far as Twitter is concerned, 13 October is an official day when people should not wear bras - apparently to raise awareness of breast cancer. The problem is, it seems to be slightly creepy, and also bollocks.
Apple released their newly anticipated iPhone at the end of September, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. Below are some pros and cons I have discovered en route to falling (partly) in love with my new phone.
The issue surrounding Ashley VanPevenage struck another nerve in me when it comes to how society views and deals with acne. For those of you who don't know, Ashley VanPevenage put out a photo of her skin before and after make up, revealing her bad skin.
My Mum recently showed me some photos of her and her family and friends when she was younger. These were all beautifully placed in an album, laughing, beautiful shots that are great to look back on and revel in the memories.
Wake up to the blaring noise of an alarm clock; jump out of bed and rush to the shower; eat something quick and convenient in the car; speed through the traffic and drive aggressively in order to arrive at work on time.
We're not a commodity and, contrary to hotels, cars, books etc. we have feelings and emotions, and are essentially pretty fragile individuals who really don't need - as the Register has dubbed it - 'slander-as-a-service'. How anyone could think this even vaguely a clever idea, and not a malicious, odious platform for bullying and nastiness is beyond me.
It is no secret that Jeremy Corbyn won the social media battle among his party leader challengers over the summer. Having appealed to a younger and more tech-savvy audience, Corbyn had a bigger social media presence and was even the source of several social media trends (such as #Jezwecan). But could this strong start on social media continue once he was in the top job?
