How to Kill Someone on Facebook
Facebook has a feature that turns accounts of deceased users into a “memorialized” state. The thing is, it’s relatively easy to do so. Anyone determined enough can memorialize a living user’s account and make life a literal living hell for him or her. So, here’s how you do it.
DO MORE (by caseyneistat)
This guy is pretty cool. I learned about him after I saw his video on his love for Instagram, which went viral for a while among tech circles. Then, I lost track of him.
Now, he’s back! He made a video for Nike promoting their fuel band. Instead of just showing what it does, this guy decides to travel all over the world with it on Nike’s dime. LOL. And that’s what he does; he makes cool videos on Youtube and gets paid for it. Sweet.
“Inspired” (by Imagination)
While people do appreciate photography, they don’t always know the lengths photographers have to go to to get that perfect shot. My hat’s off to them. As a wannabe photographer on Instagram, I can sort of relate, to a lesser extent, to the shenanigans pro photographers go through for a photo.
I have found myself in awkward situations like standing in the middle of a busy street with cars honking at me, or sneaking up on cows while attempting a close-up. Most of my photography remains private while I hone my skills, but when I feel confident about a shot I take, I publish it for all to view.
My Social Networks Visualized
Using personal analytics data from Wolfram|Alpha, I’ve compiled a visual representation of my social networks (at least the people who are on Facebook).
It accurately clusters people into groups of people I know. The bigger the circle, the more mutual acquaintances we have. The big one in the middle isn’t me; it’s my sister who knows many of the same people I do.
If you were to draw a line right down the middle from where she is, the people to the left of it are those who I’ve known since before 2001, when I moved to the Rio Grande Valley. The people to the right of it are those I’ve met after moving here, most of whom are local. Pretty cool, huh?
