It’s been more than a year since I deleted my personal Facebook account and my life is still great and normal. That decision was triggered after my little social experiment when I removed my birth date from FB. See full post here. Read More
Once again, another social media campaign that was launched to serve a good purpose has been handled in an awful, wrong way. When Em Ford of MyPaleSkinBlog released a video entitled YOU LOOK DISGUSTING, the original hashtag used was #youlookdisgusting.
