And seeing your ex in your Facebook Newsfeed continues to suck for many months after going through a tough breakup. But Facebook wants to ease that pain.
The company announced today a new feature that would soften the blow of any exposure to your ex on the platform.
When a person changes their relationship status on Facebook a series of options will appear.
You can limit what your ex-partner sees (photos, videos and status updates) and what you see from their profile.
"This work is part of our ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives. We hope these tools will help people end relationships on Facebook with greater ease, comfort and sense of control," Facebook said in a blog post.
Sounds great, Facebook. Now can you delete all those couple's Instagram pics for us?
Because basically everyone has an STD now thanks to Tinder.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a new report that shows cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis are increasing for the first time since 2006.
And more than 1.4 million cases of chlamydia were reported last year — the highest number of cases of any disease ever reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Just under 20,000 cases of syphilis were reported in 2014, the highest rate since 1994 and a 15 percent increase over 2013, the CDC said. The CDC found 458 cases of syphilis in newborn babies — a startling 27.5 percent increase over 2013.
And more than 350,000 cases of gonorrhea were reported, up 5 percent from 2013.
Why has there been such an increase? Lack of education/resources and...Tinder. People are having more sexual partners thanks to technology, and in turn getting more STDs.
You know what piece of simple technology could stop most of this? A condom.
This is all part of Whole Glory, a one-man installation and performance taking place this week in NYC. The lucky few selected through a lottery get a 1-hour session where Campbell gives them a tattoo somewhere on their arm.
His creations are pretty cool, so for a very trusting person this might be a fun exercise.
Here are some of the surprise creations from Instagram...
For anyone who loathes those horrible YouTube "social experiments," today is a glorious day.
Adrian Gee filmed a "social experiment" where he pretended to be a blind man to see if people would be dishonest when he asked for change. But the video was found to be a total lie when actors who said they were hired to be in the video came forward.
In a delightfully cringe-worthy video above, a journalist from TodayTonight called him out in a TV interview. Gee continued to lie and say the video was real, and then ended the interview abruptly.
But he did have something to say in a lengthy YouTube comment where he basically says that he lied, but it was all to troll TV networks.
I came up with the idea and thought it'd turn out to be an interesting video to shoot IF I could get a just a few people to take my $50. I contemplated on going to a bad area (which could be considered as 'The Hood' for anyone reading from the U.S) to shoot to get the reactions I needed but I took a second thought and thought to myself 'Why risk going out in 'The Hood' to lose some cash when I could just grab a few actors and get the shots that would be needed' So I decided to try it out and put a casting call out for actors to shoot a social experiment. I asked a few actors that applied and asked them if they were down and a majority of them were interested and enthused about the idea.
After the video was up I have had a majority of the actors involved message me saying they loved the video it wasn't until I accepted invitations from the media for TV interviews that is when all of this went south. I had the top 3 TV networks in Australia basically fighting over me pressing for a TV interview. Initially I wasn't going to do any but then I reconsidered and thought to myself 'Why not?' as most of the stuff they put out to air are all lies what difference will this make. After all this is just a silly YouTube video that's intended to make you think. I basically 'trolled' everyone through the interviews via Channel 7 & Channel 9 (Channel 10 were smart and pretty much knew the video was staged and decided to back out from the interview).
SUUUUUREEEEE...Adrian Gee. How about this?
You were caught in a lie and your other dumb videos are probably fake, too.
