Have you heard the good news?

South African artist Jaco Haasbroek is out to make sure that you do.

His art project, The Good News, places posters of happy news (often with puns) around the city to brighten people's day.

He told Mashable he started the project after seeing a missing dog sign that said "STOLEN."

"It's quite sad when someone loses a pet," he said. "The idea popped into my head that by simply adding 'Our Hearts' at the bottom of the poster, it would completely change its meaning and turn into something positive."

You can check out more of the project on Haasbroek's Instagram.

One "social media celebrity" is quitting social media because she says she had become consumed.

18-year-old Australian model and vegan YouTuber Essena O'Neill is quitting social media and launching a campaign to help others who want to make the change themselves.

This might seem trivial, but for someone who made thousands of dollars through social media—her career is now in jeopardy.

And she had a lot of followers:

Essena O'Neill, from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, had over 574,000 Instagram followers, more than 250,000 subscribers on YouTube and around 60,000 dedicated Snapchat contacts when she decided to give up her life as a 'social media celebrity'.

In her final YouTube video, O'Neil describes why she is quitting social media.

"I put my value in numbers, not real life people, moments or my natural passions of art, writing...Posting on Instagram consumed me," she wrote.

"We are not followers, we are beings of individuality and love. I have never felt so free."

She said she is leaving her Instagram and YouTube accounts up as documentation of her journey. She even started changing Instagram captions to reveal the truth about sponsored posts and highly edited photos.

Instead of using popular social media platforms, O'Neill has set up a website and blog,, where she will continue to interact with fans and share her content.

Her first challenge to users? Go social media free for one week.

Could you do it?

When Hurricane Isaac rammed into Louisiana in 2012, it displaced a lot of people, but it gave at least one animal a new, happy home.

A squirrel, now named Jill, has found an owner who's willing to give her all the love and social media attention she can handle.

The Instagram account thisgirlisasquirrel says it all:

2-year-old Hurricane Isaac rescue. Vegetarian, parkour expert whose only fear is the vacuum. But, she loves every Starbucks napkin she meets.

And the pictures prove that all is well for Jill the squirrel.

She stays warm.

She has friends.

She works out.

She loves snap peas.

She loves America.

And Mexico

She loves fall.

You're killing it, girl. Keep living like you do.

It's a dismal world after all.

A new Instagram account called sadtopographies, shares the most depressing place names possible.

"Somewhere to go, when you're feeling low," the description reads.

Mostly though, they're just funny.

Disney mostly shows their princesses in an innocent light, what with the films being made for children and all.

But Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Tarusov had another idea.

He has worked on a striking series, called 'Princess Pin Up', and shared it all on his Instagram account.

Lindsay Lohan spins an insane rant off on Instagram.

Look Lindsay Lohan, we all know that Sept. 11 is a tough time for many people and that coherent thoughts about the tragedy still evade people even 14 years after the event. But keep it together.

Poor, poor Lindsay decided it would be a great idea to post a picture of herself and a message about Sept. 11(?) last night. But what she actually did was provide a very long, very confusing, very insane-sounding caption about god knows what that ends with "#UnitedNations".

Here's the caption:

they always come back. I love you NYC 💋they always come back. I love you NYC 💋 #godblesstheworld #michaeljackson #rip miss you as my real only private friend. For you: god, for all hurts and wrongs, please let me forgive, Allah please let me be forgiven, and all forgive themselves. Please and thank you. (Someone I was with the night before several towers fell, it felt like not a curse, but more like a spell.. What we think in America is not always clear, we don't have @peta commercials / you just kill deer....with this being said, I'm a girl with a reputation mislead... Like a diamond in the rough, you, now, for 25 years have seen me on TV and screen.. So i am programmed 🔺to stand tough. Black or white - in life, rather than love we create a fight of an ideal situation of an unexceptional, yet unacceptable future that @TMZ @Eonline @HarveylevinTMZ & #harveyweinstein ..couldn't and wouldn't even care to describe any thought of the people we forget to help when a franchise film comes out and, If money means more than freedom- than stay in California. If helping others is a passion, talk to angelina jolie... If you want to be a brilliant actress, work wth Meryl Streep the end of the day- republican or democrats --- BE HERE NOW @oprah and live with integrity. Or go to sleep. The most beautiful life comes cheap. Stop fighting and using artists for distractions. It's boring... 🙏 #UnitedNations


Either this is performance art, or someone hilarious hopped on her account, or we should all continue to be very worried about her.

Not sure how something conceivably about Sept. 11 turned so quickly into something about Michael Jackson. Not sure why she asks god to help her forgive, but only Allah to let her be forgiven. Not sure if she's mad at Oprah or using her as an example of something good.

Just really not sure.

The new Instagram account Putinspiration is only a week old, but in that short time it has probably changed thousands of lives with its message.

In the same vein as the inspirational posters that have been going around for years, this one just slaps positive messages on great pictures of the Russian President Vladimir Putin.
