When you’re in a relationship, social media is one of those things that you love, but at the same time you can easily grow to hate. While the latest apps and social networking sites may make your life easier, more convenient, and much more interesting, they may each be taking a toll on your relationship. Here are some signs social media is ruining your relationship and what you can do about it.
The 394-unit project, called Anton Menlo (it’s being developed in partnership with real estate developer St. Anton Partners), will be within walking of the social network’s Menlo Park, Calif., campus. The cushy rental complex will feature all the benefits of high-end apartments. Plans include options that rival the amenities of even the most posh housing arrangements and compliment the batch of incentives already offered at the youthful, laid-back office park.
Although Anton Menlo will certainly draw prospective recruits away from other power players in the tech and startup market, the digital brand is no innovator in corporate housing. Large businesses often hold leases on apartment blocks to accommodate guests and displaced employees. But community setups such as these haven’t been seen since industrial neighborhoods died out in the early 20th century.
Still the modern company town is certainly an advantage in an area with rising real estate costs, hundreds of relocating techies and a flustering search for nearby residential options. But will employees living among their peers soon forget how to unplug?
Perhaps when you work for Facebook, taking a step back is less of a concern. However, living and working with the same people around the clock can easily become overwhelming in an already frenzied occupation. Still once the 630,000 square-foot housing complex is complete, workers of the pioneer in online community development will have one of their very own IRL (In Real Life, in case you don’t know). And they’ll never have an excuse for being late again.
First came Myspace then came Facebook and then came Instagram. Oh, and as usual, then came the foolishness. What started out as a simple, cute way to share pics online has, for some, turned into the biggest way for them to waste time, air too much personal business, or shade folks right and left. In other words, they are an instagram addict. If you’re not sure whether you fall into this category, let us help you.
Though you may think that a tweet is just a tweet, for some celebrities, tweeting means extra bucks. As if these celebrities needed more money, various companies have tapped into celebrities with Twitter accounts in effort to promote their service or product amongst the celebrity’s fan base. Here are 14 celebrities who get paid a pretty penny for their 140-character tweets.
*TeeTee Is a Mother as Well as a Black Women. It Saddens me when a Beautiful Black Women with a Beautiful Black Young Baby comes on another Black Women page and Speaks Negative about her Beautiful Black Young Lady… Let Me say this Mama if 1 person comes on this pic and comments negative about your Baby what would you do? How would you feel? Well let me tell you how I Feel (Anger, Rage and ready to Fight). I’m not going to play this mean and evil game with you or any 1 else. I’m a tell you how Pretty your Little Girl is, I’m a say I Pray she Grows up to be everything GOD as predestined Her to Be, I’m a say that I pray Angels watch Over You, her and all your Love 1s. I’m going to pretend you didn’t just GO INNN on my Baby Girl picture… I’ll just Say God Bless You as A Mother and as A Black Sister… From another Sister. Your Girl is Very PrettyMessage! Some of you, like a couple of Fantasia’s Instagram followers, will argue that she shouldn’t have even dignified this woman’s mean and hateful comment with a response. That’s understandable. But if Tee Tee deleting her comment was any indication, I’d say that the message got through. But even if it didn’t, let this serve as a reminder that celebrities are real people with real feelings but most importantly it is really and truly morally despicable to talk about someone else’s child, especially when you have one of your own. Fantasia could have easily talked about this woman’s daughter, whether it was true or not, and many of her fans would have cosigned the foolishness as karma; but instead she took a moment to compliment and educate this woman about her lapse in judgement. Much respect and God bless Fantasia for this. *I won’t include her real user name here, though you can find it on Fantasia’s Instagram page.
Social networking is no longer about getting back into touch with people we haven’t talked to in years. Instead, it’s become a platform for people to spill and share their life on a 24/7 basis. You see people Facebooking their relationship, Tweeting their work day, and Instagramming their dates. When you’re in a relationship, it’s likely that you feel the need to tell everyone about it. However, there are some positives to keeping your relationship on the down low. Like these:
