  1. New Study Suggests Social Media Users Are Less Likely To Share Opinions

    On this, the Internet? HOW.

    One of the biggest criticisms against social media is that its users must think their opinions are the most important ones to ever have been held through all of history and that everyone must hear them all the time for the good of humanity. Not true! According to a recently published study, most of us are actually kind of shy online and will withhold our real opinions, because we don't want people to hate us.

  2. Study Shows People Fake Their Social Media Image to Appear Authentic, Surprising No One

    Also, the sky is blue.

    It's important to project an authentic image of yourself on social media—and I mean yourself, because I, on the other hand, will be carefully tailoring the perfect public image that I'd like to project while judging you for doing the same. At least, that's what a new study (or anyone who's ever been through high school) says.

  3. Twitter Vows to Improve Anti-Harassment Policies After Trolls Go After Zelda Williams

    ABOUT. DANG. TIME.

    A lot of us got disgusted with the state of humanity yesterday after it came out that Robin Williams' daughter was bullied off social media in the wake of her father's death, in part by two scum-of-the-Earth trolls who sent her photoshopped pictures of her father's body. In the wake of such epic shitbaggery, Twitter has vowed to improve their anti-harassment policies, which have needed an overhaul for, well, years. I'm going to try real hard not to be cynical about this, you guys.

  5. Twitter Users Perfectly Hijack AMA Hashtag to Harass Twitter CEO About Harassment

    That is some knee-buckling irony right there.

    Several well-intentioned Twitter hashtags have fallen victim to a misjudgment of the Twitter audience lately and been used to criticize their creators. Unsurprisingly, the same thing happened when Twitter started #AskCostolo for users to ask Twitter CEO Dick Costolo whatever they wanted—and what they wanted to ask was, "Why does Twitter not do more about online harassment?"

    Add a "cute puppy gif" button and maybe I'd start using Facebook again.

  7. Study Shows Your Boss Probably Uses Social Media at Work More Than You Do (At Least If You’re Norwegian)

    "Yeah, if you could just go ahead and use social media less while you're at work... that'd be great."

    Our jobs at The Mary Sue revolve pretty heavily around social media, so it's a big part of our day. We're told some offices frown on social media use during work hours, but a new study by the University of Bergen in Norway says management tends to be guilty of more personal social media use than their employees.

    i'll just leave this here

    Design Crowd asked their users to redesign Game of Thrones house banners for various ginormous companies, and while I like what they've done, I really wish I had their design known-how so I could make some fandom-specific ones.
