Facebook is working on a new platform specifically for meme-obsessed teens that's already being described as 'cringey' (FB)

Facebook is quietly building a platform for discovering memes, TechCrunch reports. The platform is called LOL, and will consist of "funny videos and GIF-like clips" that users can vote on and share.

The Truth About You

IN THE January/February 2019 issue of Communication Arts, Ernie Schenck writes about two kinds of truth: authentic and inauthentic. Authentic truth is who you are. Inauthentic truth is who you are when everyone is looking. It’s accepting what the loudest voices around you are saying because you don’t want to look bad. It’s commonplace in politics, but we see it everywhere. It’s pandering. Not leadership. It’s denigrating. Not serving. Inauthentic leadership is selfish. We use it to get somethin...

Priyanka Chopra Just Went Blonde — One Month After Her Wedding

It's been seven days since we last heard from Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas on social media — and by now we know that's out of the ordinary for the newlyweds.

We Scoured Instagram & Found 8 Of 2019's Buzziest New Jewelry Brands

Nowadays, the rule of thumb for jewelry is pretty clear: the more the merrier. We layer so many necklaces on top of each other that waking up without a tangled mess around our necks is impossible, our hands are stacked with a ring (if not multiple) on every finger and we're on a first-name basis with the local piercing dude. Needless to say, the days of taking a minimalist stance in this department are officially a thing of the past. So naturally, we're always on the hunt for new brands to add ...
