social media

A major corporation runs a campaign to let people on the internet be a little creative with their brand and said campaign fails spectacularly because people are awful. Sound familiar? It's a tale as old as time. Or at least as old as Wifi. This time the social media screw up is burger themed, YUM!

The Economist published an article that points out the diamond business isn't as booming as it once was.This prompted them to ask why millennials aren't buying diamonds. Obviously, some of those "social media obsessed" Millennials took to Twitter to answer that pressing question.

The Facebook page 'Life of Dad' has issued a #CheerioChallenge to all of their loyal followers. Competition is getting serious and families are sacrificing hours of precious parenting time to try to outstack each other.

Currently, the record for most Cheerios on a child's face is at 17.

This woman posted a photo gallery of her story on Imgur which led to a diagnosis of a genetic disease that affects connective tissues called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). She explains the backstory in the description of the follow up picture post:

Five months ago, I posted "The Story Of A Broken Dancer." In this post, I told the story of how all I've ever wanted was to be a professional dancer, but that countless injuries and unexplained medical issues were coming in between me and my dream. Well, after posting this, hundreds of Imgurians commented on the post and messaged me saying I should look at different conditions or diseases they thought I had, but one that I received overwhelmingly was "Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Hyper Mobility Type III." I looked into it and decided it was worth a shot to get the testing done, and as of this morning, I have been officially confirmed to have EDS.


You can look through her original gallery right here:

The people of Cheltenham, England were devastated by tragedy in the night. The extent of the fallout from this incident is as yet unknown.  First reported by The Gloucestershire Echo, this sad, entire chicken dinner was found strewn about the pavement early Thursday morning. 

Residents have been reacting on social media, most with compassion, some with outrage over the lack of coverage by 'mainstream' media outlets.

Here's hoping the Cheltenham community is able to recover quickly from this incident. Someone will probably start a GoFundMe campaign for it if they haven't already.

While presumably celebrating his arrival in Bogotá, Columbia, Snoop Dogg took a selfie and checked in to Bogata, a city in Romania.  This gave Bogata a lot of attention from the internet crowd. If you're wondering what kind of place it is, someone has already capitalized on the publicity by making visitbogata.com and explaining

Someone has already capitalized on the new publicity by making visitbogata.com to explain everything the place has to offer. Interestingly enough, in addition to being super chill, Bogata is a place where industrial hemp is grown so they couldn't have had a better accidental celebrity endorsement. 

As for the people who actually live there, they don't really care. According to the Balkan Insight, one villager just seemed a little confused about the situation:

I don’t know how this singer – whoever is he – could make such a mistake. Bogota is one thing, Bogata something different Ioan, a 61-year-old villager said, according to a report in Pressone.ro magazine.
