What Your Facebook Posts Tell Us About Your Personal Life

Ever since networking evolved from the MySpace phenomenon back in 2003, Facebook took the top spot two years later, now having pulled in over 1 billion users, making for a plentiful abundance of social media fanatics. What began as a small college site evolved into a soapbox for anyone with something very important or either very useless to share. While the internet allows us our freedom of speech to preach whatever we wish to friends and family around the world, we aren't apt to pausing very long before doing so.

What Is Your Level Of Friendship?

Over the years I have had so many different kids of friendships. When we're kids we share toys and have fun sleepovers.

Is It Still Possible to Have Privacy on the Web?

With the assorted private groups on Facebook, I started thinking about the ways we can still have privacy on the web, or if I’m just dreaming. If I post in one of the private groups I belong to, no one is supposed to see that post except the people in the group, but can I tag someone in a photo or video who isn’t part of the group. Then they see that post, right? Not so private, if that’s doable.

Use Your Social Life To Get The Love Life You Crave

If you're single: do you dream of dating a rock climber but spend all your free time playing games online?

Moms Can Still Throw A Mean Party

When I had children, there was the fleeting fear that my days of throwing fabulous parties had come to a finale of their own. I ushered this thought out the door – right along with the suggestion of elastic-waisted mom jeans – and reaffirmed my commitment to throwing memory-making soirees. Sure, the parties and my style have had to evolve, but now that the bottles of white I serve are as likely to hold white grape juice as Chardonnay, here’s what I’ve learned about entertaining post-Mommyhood.

Babies in the Theater, on Date Night?

Who says it's not possible to have a life after a newborn? Just because jumping into bed with the lust-driven passion of a new couple may not be possible after the kids are born, it doesn't mean you still can't have a night out at the movies. And hey, why not take the baby? A father relays his thoughts on his life and relationships after a night at the movies.
