The Government Would Like You to Write a 'Social Media Will'

The Government Would Like You to Write a 'Social Media Will' | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it
The U.S. government now suggests you create a social media will as part of estate planning.

 

By some estimates, nearly a half a million people with Facebook accounts passed away last year, leaving family and friends to navigate what to do with those pages. Leave the account open? Shut it down entirely? Convert it to an official Facebook memorial page? What would you want for your own Facebook profile? And forget Facebook, what do you want to become of your email account?

Why You Could Be Prosecuted for Posting Olympics Photos to Facebook

Why You Could Be Prosecuted for Posting Olympics Photos to Facebook | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it
For an event being hyped by organizers as the "first social media Olympics," the 2012 games in London have some pretty antisocial policies. Athletes will not be allowed to tweet photos of themselves with products that aren’t official Olympics sponsors or share photos or videos from inside the athletes’ village.

Fans, too, could be barred from sharing on Facebook and YouTube photos and videos of themselves enjoying the action.

Dinosaur Flatulence Contributed to Mesozoic Global Warming

Dinosaur Flatulence Contributed to Mesozoic Global Warming | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it

Methane is a leading greenhouse gas, and the producers of methane — including cows and other ruminants — are often singled out as a possible contributor to global climate change. However, it seems that they may not have been the first to do so. A new study published in Current Biology has pegged the entire output of giant sauropod dinosaurs at around 520 million tons of gas every year.

Grandma Dies 6 Times in Ad, But It's For a Good Cause [VIDEO]

Grandma Dies 6 Times in Ad, But It's For a Good Cause [VIDEO] | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it

A grandma dies six times in a new ad, but it's for a good cause. Or rather a good joke.

 

The ad, from agency Draftfcb in Buenos Aires, is one where you spend the first three quarters wondering what the hell is going on. When the punchline finally lands, you may not only laugh, but think a little as well. In other words, it’s pretty much everything you want in an ad. That is, unless you’re sensitive about this subject — even when it’s blatantly fake. In that case, it’s pretty much unwatchable.

First 'Alien Earth' May Be Found by 2014

First 'Alien Earth' May Be Found by 2014 | Prozac Moments | Scoop.it
The first true "alien Earth" will likely be discovered in the next two years, a NASA scientist says.

 

Astronomers have found more than 750 alien planets to date, and NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope has flagged 2,300 additional “candidates” awaiting confirmation by follow-up studies. This haul has not yet included an Earth-like exoplanet — one that’s the size of our planet and orbits at the right distance from its star to support liquid water and, possibly, life as we know it.
