My Prediction For Next Year- First Day Of School Photos Sponsor On Facebook

Facebook has once again reminded me of my age. Am I seeing ads and status updates about bars and hipster events?

My Life According To Facebook

From time to time I log onto Facebook and purge photos of me that have been tagged and commented on by others. Let’s be honest. When people post photos of themselves on Facebook, they usually look great. What these people fail to do on occasion is make sure the person standing next to them in the photo looks great too.Or, the people in the photo might both look great, but some random friend-of-a-friend comes along and makes some distasteful comments....more

I’ll be back in June, so I’m vowing to do a lot better job next time, and in the meantime I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for a way to win something using social media. Since I know I’m going to be taking a lot of trips there, and I’m cheap, I’ve been keeping an eye on a few channels and participating in contests to learn a little more about my new home-away-from-home....more
