People sharing their joy on Facebook indirectly puts down other people's achievements... life has its ups and downs, and of course it's only the former that gets shared, for the most part. However, getting below the coveted 2:1 makes others feel they can't share their success.
David Cameron, or rather whoever it is who Tweets for him (from an iPhone, interestingly), should have set aside 20 minutes after he finished firing out the infochunks™ and replied to some users. Retweeted some comments. That's where the real value of social media lies and he missed a big opportunity. The problem is widespread - a study into the types of tweets that MPs were writing found that only 28.7% were part of conversations - using the @ function. That is far too low. Social networks demand many-to-many-interaction. Social media is about talking and listening. It's about relationships.
As I sat next to my husband of 17 years moaning to me that David Cameron had only appointed the three women he had because they were women, not because they were competent, it made me want to thrust their CVs in his face and maybe down his throat.
Some stories are best told with visualisation... They aren't flashy; they are simple and designed to convey key information quickly... The amount of data being generated by the World Cup lets us explore anything.
Sexuality is complicated and we all have our secrets and desires, most of which are vastly different from those of the next person. But what it is about sending unsolicited images like this via social media that makes us think this is a 'safe' thing to do?
In general, unionised workers are better off than non-unionised. Even in Britain, home to the toughest anti-union legislation in Western Europe, unions make a difference; strong unions make a bigger one.
American cyclist Tejay van Garderen branded the craze 'a dangerous mix of vanity and stupidity' ... in this technologically driven age, each spectator wants to prove they were part of the action and hence the selfie found a new arena... it undoubtedly gravitates towards narcissism. 'Look at how much fun I'm having, I want you to envy me'.
We often stigmatised, men for being the more sexually liberated gender, able to sleep with however many women they wish without ridicule. As the comments on this video have confirmed, people are still more willing to jump to conclusions about a womans sexual behaviour than a mans.
Crowdfunding has been met with skepticism from banks and local government. "They see it as a threat," claims Absi, "they fear it because it could be a way of laundering money or funding terrorism; it's not a comfortable zone for them."
I wouldn't hide behind a tree or a parked car to follow my ex-girlfriends every move? Nor would I invite every person I meet in a nightclub, to view my daughter's baby pictures. I don't stroll casually down the street screaming at the top of my lungs 'Well done me!' in regards to my personal achievements as I have no desire to be considered conceited or narcissistic.
If you're ambitious for your business, you won't want to hang about. So here are nine growth strategies to help you get the most from your time and effort as a business owner or as an entrepreneur.
The performative self[ie] online is part of a longer social process of mapping the marginal body into space, a networked space that posits the identifiable self as part of a primary narrative from which it has been excluded... It's a way of manifesting one's existence, proving that you are alive.
Nearly one billion viewers worldwide are predicted to watch Sunday's final with the social media sphere expected to see a massive spike during and immediately after the match. Technology, and our adoption of it, has certainly been a key player in making this tournament such a success.
In the UK we're just embarrassed of wearing them, which is a very British response. So in theory Glass is great but the reality is that after a while we all got bored. As my youngest said: "What's next Dad?"
No one cares about your new clicky pen or the three friends you're currently hanging out with. Taking a selfie with it/them and hashtagging the damn photo doesn't make it more interesting. Can we just go back to appreciating proper group photos where you can actually see everyone's faces?
Personal experiences of hipsters are a far cry from Williamsburg, New York but instead it was like watching pockets of East London being swallowed up by a swarm of skinny jean wearing, flat white drinking locusts. As preened men were dubbed "Metrosexuals" and "scallies" evolved into "Chavs"; in my circle "Indie" became "Hipster".
