Coronavirus: Brand Moves for Monday May 18

According to new survey data from McKinsey & Co, 20% of shoppers have left their primary grocery store in favor of another during the crisis, and 37% of those who’ve made the switch expect to remain loyal to the new retailer after the crisis ends.

LinkedIn the perfect social platform for sexual predators

I was recently running an advanced social media training session with a number of senior female academics and when the subject of LinkedIn was brought up. I started discussing how it was useful to raise your profile in the higher education sector and I was met by a series of hesitant glances. LinkedIn being used like Tinder and Bumble I wondered what was wrong and the academics told me they don’t use LinkedIn for one main reason; because men approach them on it all of the time.

This Dry Shampoo Mist Makes My Sweaty Post-Workout Hair Look Fresh and Clean

Thanks to my superfine hair, stretching the amount of time I can go between washes is a real challenge. By day two, I definitely need a few sprays of dry shampoo - and by day three, the only thing that can camouflage my oily hair is a low bun. Throw working out into the mix, and it's almost impossible for me to go more than a day and a half without shampooing. My typical fitness routine includes yoga, strength training, and plenty of cardio, which means I'm breaking a sweat almost every time I ...

The Surprising Value Of “Bad” Dates, According To Real People

Remember that one date with the “method actor” who didn’t believe in tipping? The one with the stand-up comedian who insisted on recording your back-and-forth for material? The one where your counterpart arrived 27 minutes late, wearing just one flip-flop? Naturally, the list goes on. But here’s a hot take: These dates, albeit “unsuccessful,” have their merit, too. Whether we’re pursuing eternal love, great sex, or solid banter over negronis, our sub-par dates can be just as formative as our...

Gay dating app calls it quits

Chappy is ending its relationship with your phone, which means the only remaining apps for same-sex meetups are now Grindr, Tinder, OKCupid, Bumble, Scruff, Growlr, and if you’re kinky, Christian Mingle. Oh, and the several other smaller ones we’re not listing. In other words, it’s a saturated market out there, and ultimately Chappy couldn’t retain a dating pool big enough to thrive.
