Earlier this Fall, we heard the horrible story of a Playboy Playmate named Dani Mathers who, when in the locker room of an L.A. Fitness gym felt it necessary to take a body-shaming photo of an unsuspecting older woman then post it to Snapchat to make fun of her. Now, Mathers has been formally charged.Read More

Like all the various social media platforms out there, our favorite chat platforms are trying to figure out what makes their competitors popular and emulate those features to an extent. While Snapchat recently introduced "Memories," a way of saving snaps and stories, Facebook Messenger will not be outdone and is testing self-destroying messages with a timer just like Snapchat.Read More

Things We Saw Today: “Mighty Men of Marvel” Variant Covers Have Lots of Shirtlessness, So, Uh, There’s That
Apparently, these variant covers are partly inspired by other upcoming covers--but with a sexy twist, I guess? Either way, these are leaving comic book fans with some mostly mixed reactions. What are your thoughts on the "Mighty Men of Marvel" variant covers? In the case of Captain America, that's one oddly revealed nipple.Read More
Those are some mighty fine apples there.

Snapchat Was Warned of Security Problems and Told Everyone Things Were Fine Days Before Security Breach
Doesn't everyone know the first step is admitting you have a problem?
Snapchat suffered recently when millions of its users' usernames and phone numbers were posted for public viewing by hackers, but companies that operate online run that risk. The risk significantly increases when a group of hackers warns you that you're vulnerable and tells the entire Internet how to hack you, and you say everything is fine.Read More
You know it's going to appeal to today's youths because they put a Z at the end.
As we all likely know, Snapchat is a phone app that allows you to send self-destructing picture messages to your friends. Naturally this means that it's literally full of naked pictures, so your bratty little smartphone-wielding 8-year-old with hasn't been able to join in the fun. Well, not anymore -- now there's a feature in iOS that allows children under the age of 13 to use a protected form of the app called "Snapkidz," so your kid can take stupid pictures to their heart's content! Not that they can then send them anywhere, though.Read More
If your interoffice communication is getting a little dull, try the OTR Chrome extension. It's basically SnapChat for work.
We've talked about SnapChat before. It's a photo-sharing app that deletes the pictures you send after a few seconds, so people use it mostly for pictures of their genitals. That's not very appropriate for business, so someone went ahead and made a SnapChat-like Chrome extension that lets you send pictures and messages to coworkers.Read More
Facebook's one of those companies that's notorious for attempting to purchase any other company that they determine to be within their wheelhouse. It's pretty much the driving reason behind their acquisition of Instagram. If you can't beat 'em, buy 'em. That's why when Snapchat, an app that sends self-destructing pictures, hit the market, it's not surprising to learn that Facebook tried to acquire them. When that didn't pan out, Facebook built their own Poke app, which is basically the same thing. What's actually interesting about the app is that Mark Zuckerberg himself supposedly worked on it, and even used his own voice for the notification sound.Read More
Facebook is rumored to be launching an app to compete with Snapchat. If you're not familiar with Snapchat, it's a photo messaging service that sets itself apart from other ways of sending your friends photos by having pictures "self-destruct" Inspector Gadget-style after a preset length of time -- usually just a few seconds. Why would anyone need to send a photo that self-destructs? The only answer I can think of is for sending naked pictures to people, and I'm not alone in that assumption, as Snapchat has developed a reputation as the "sexting app."Read More
