Using Tumblr: The Idiot’s Guide

In a maze of Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Stumble, the weary brethren (myself, included) struggled to understand the meaning of the seventh creation. Tumblr? A place to.... tumble? An ode to the gymnasts? A home for floor routine inspired decor?

Sex in the News: What does your profile picture say about you?

This single snapshot imposes a strong impression on the rest of the world and whether you are going for the fun-party-girl look or the sensitive-animal-lover facade, the right profile picture can be the key to conveying any desired impression. So how do you take the best profile picture to impress others and inspire conversation?

Forget Facebook: 5 Social Media Sites You Should Be Using

When we think of social media sites, we think of one thing: Facebook. It’s where we post out status updates, where we post our pictures, and where we have obnoxiously long, unnecessary commenting wars with our BFFs. But I’ve got news for you ladies. Facebook is not the only social media site out there.

To Blog or Not To Blog?

We live in a social media obsessed world. There’s Facebook, Myspace, (although I wonder if anyone actually still uses it), Twitter, and many blogging platforms such as Tumblr, Wordpress, and Blogger. Although we upload our pictures to Flickr and Facebook all the time or write about our weekend experiences in personal blogs, there could be a possible downside to all of this internet exposure?

Duke It Out: Social Media Blackout

Schools all over have been experimenting with social media lately - some of them getting into it and some of them encouraging their students to stay out of it. Now Harrisburg University of Science and Tech are blocking all social media from the school's network including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and AIM for a week. They're not the first school to try a move like this, but my question is, is it right?

Facebook Characters That We Love

The writers over at The Ultimate Hatelist composed a list of the Top 10 Most Hated People on Facebook: The Constant Status Updater, Facebook Couples, People Who Post Little Pictures... Clearly, we agree with them. Those girls with the freakin’ peace-sign-and-pouty-lip pics and the people who actually pay for Facebook gifts should go back where they belong: MySpace.

Tuffy Luv Expects Investments To Pay Out

Dear Tuffy Luv, Please respond! I'm in a rough spot. Also, this is a very long story. My boyfriend and I have been dating for 2 1/2 years. We love each other very much and he is my best friend, but we have had a lot of trust issues. It all started close to a year into our relationship.

Weekly Ten: My Parents Joined

My mom is a very cool, tech savvy lady. She even had a Twitter before I did (and she loves to remind me of this) and is totally engrossed in Facebook. My dad also has a Facebook, but uses it much more sparingly. However, he has managed to comment on a picture of mine saying, "Look at my beautiful daughter! And smart too!"

For The Love of Love, Back Away From the Blackberry

In this digital age, we are never apart from the ones we love, at least not for too long. With smart phones, texting, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Skype, and SMS updates, we are just a press of a button away. We are closer to other people than we have ever been before. Even long distance relationships don’t seem that long-distance anymore.

Another Pointless Facebook Update?

For those of us who log into Facebook every five minutes or so because of boredom (hey, it's better than snacking) or a strange addiction to bumper stickers and flair, the news that all Facebook accounts will be getting vanity URLs is so yesterday.

Emotional Baggage: How to Handle Your Lover’s Past

It's a fact of life: unless you marry your high school sweetheart, the older you get, the more relationships you've had. And so has your significant other. Not only are there more relationships, but they are more meaningful. There are shared pets, friends that knew 'them', ex-apartments, ex-fiances, ex-spouses, even children.

Finding a Job Isn’t Impossible – Just Get Creative!

As the semester comes to a close, one thing that's on my mind (and the minds of most everyone I know) besides finals and start-of-summer parties is getting a job. Whether it's a summer job, internship, or, if you're graduating like I am, an entry-level position into a career, finding a job is a top priority.

Should We Be Jailed for Dumb Decisions?

A 14-year-old New Jersey girl was arrested after posting nude pictures of herself on her Myspace profile in an attempt to tease her boyfriend. The charge? Distributing child pornography. Three Pennsylvania teens face similar charges after sending some seriously dirty texts. Yikes!
