  2. Scientific Researchers Are Using Social Media All Wrong, Probably Should’ve Done More Research

    Well, they're using it for research and not cat videos, so...

  3. This Gaming Journalist Fights Back Against The Trolls Who Threatened Her By Contacting Their Mothers

    "I'm telling MOM!"

  4. The Facebook “Gamer” Report Button Is Real, But It’s Not What You Think

    Unless you think it's about fake Farmville accounts. Then you nailed it.

    Well, technically it's real, but it's not some kind of dystopian crackdown on people who play video games participating in society. Images floating around of an option to report accounts for being "gamers" haven't been doctored, but don't take them out of context.
