Ask a Roommate: The Facebook Status

Ask a Roommate: The Facebook Status

It's so temping to share with the world Facebook how miffed you were when your roommate stumbled in at 3 a.m. on a Tuesday night with some rando. Your girlfriends at home would def feel your pain, and you know they'd leave a few snarky comments on you wall to help ease the severe mental damage you sustained from being woken up at such an ungodly hour.

Single Girl Society: “It’s Complicated” But We Don’t Need To Know That

There are a lot of complicated things in life – like trying to figure out what’s going on in the Middle East, or why Charlie Sheen is still famous, or what outfit to wear this Friday night – But your Facebook relationship status should not be one of them.

Facebook Places: Gettin’ All Up In Your Business Since 2010

Introducing Foursquare for Facebook, called Facebook Places, that takes everyone's favorite stalker application to the next level. Not only will your friends, frenemy's, second cousins, and co-workers be able to check into locations, but they'll also be able to check you into locations. Apparently they're claiming that it's just like tagging someone in a photo because it has a detag option.

5 Things You Should Never Do On Facebook

5 Things You Should Never Do On Facebook

Back in the day (when I still had a MySpace account) Facebook was a brand new platform for social opportunity and getting to know people in college. I remember the days when my status was restricted by the word "is" and I only had 50 pictures tagged of myself at graduation parties and I thought I was super rad. Suddenly, My Space turned into the Britney Spears white trash of all social networks and I was spending the majority of my time on the blue and white pages of Facebook.

One Month Challenge: Giving Up Gossiping, Week 2

One Month Challenge: Giving Up Gossiping, Week 2

And so ends my first full week of no gossip.... and it was pretty tough. I would go to tell my family, friends, or boyfriend something and before I even opened my mouth I would have to ask myself if it was gossip. A lot of times, it would be, so I would have to stop, come up with another topic and start over.

The 9 Friends You Avoid At All Costs

The 9 Friends You Avoid At All Costs

We're all well aware of the friends every girl needs, but what about the friends nobody wants? Is there anything more annoying than having to avoid a friend that you hate? It’s like, "stop calling me every day and messaging me on Facebook all the time and showing up in my bedroom when I’m sleeping."

Facebook Is Ruining Everything

Facebook Is Ruining Everything

Facebook is the hallmark of our generation. It's usually a good way to see what your friends (or acquaintances, or enemies...) are up to and a good way to kill some time. But the more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that this social networking tool is actually ruining our lives and dramatically changing the way we stalk communicate...for the worse.

Girl Whose Updates Consist Solely of What Her Dog Does: Getting Dooney out of bed to play in the snow is next to impossible. She just looks at me and then lays back down. She is such a teenie-bopper. I literally put her leash on and tried to pull her out of bed with no luck, the bed would have had to go on a walk also!

Your “Ta Ta, 2009” To-Do List

Ah, the new year is upon us, ladies. I absolutely LOVE this time of year, when everything feels so fresh and full of promise (or is that just the fact that I finally have my mom to clean my dirty laundry?). But, as tempting as it is to delete the old year like last week's Nip/Tuck season finale, there are still some (very valuable) days left in 2009.

There’s a Time and A Place for Facebooking

Everyone has that one friend who is a habitual Facebook status updater. Their life is an open book for all of their cyber friends to read. As if people care that you are at the gym right now or cleaning out your earwax. There are some things better left un-updated. And there are some places and times when it’s not OK to update either.

Yes, de-friending is a vicious process, but it has to be done in order to make way for new and more important friendships. Read: the people with the most exciting photos to stalk.

Life After College: Back-To-School But Not For Me

Life After College: Back-To-School But Not For Me

Lately it seems like Facebook is on a mission (aided by the company that sells prozac) to make me feel suicidal every time I sign on. For weeks all the status updates and albums were "lovin' summer" and "will it ever stop raining this summer?" I could easily relate to those as I was also experiencing summer and the torrential rain showers of '09.
