Predicting the Next Social Media Hit Re/code Facebook and Snapchat and WhatsApp may be changing our social behavior — the way in which we socialize — but they have not changed the underlying social impulses, or why we choose to engage in those...
Becky Rodriguez's insight:

When do we know when the next social media will arise? Well we don't. We have gotten to know Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, & Snapchat. These are apps and social websites where it makes it easier for us to gossip with one another. It has come to their attention that maybe Secrets are the best way to start gossip, because you tell a person in confidence but one way or another someone eventually ends up finding out. But with these social websites it makes life easier just to talk shit about a person online. As the generation increases with technology the more we will make it rise into the stars.

Too Much Bodybuilding Obsession Could Lead To Bigorexia In Males

Too Much Bodybuilding Obsession Could Lead To Bigorexia In Males | Current Events | Scoop.it

Experts feel that a potentially dangerous obsession with bodybuilding is rising among men in the recent times. Muscle dysmorphia is the condition that is just the opposite of anorexia that would make the people suffering from it to believe that they do not have enough muscles. This disorder is fondly known as bigorexia but only fewer facts are available about this condition, as medical practitioners recognized it only in 1997 by doctors. .

Becky Rodriguez's insight:

If you thought anorexia was bad, well so is bigorexia. Its when you think you dont have enough muscle and want to get bigger(ripped). This situation is mostly on guys who are bodybuilders, they want to presume and show off that there strong. Some of these men over do their workouts by hitting the gym 6 days a week for 6 hours. Bigorexia is a bad disorder you shouldn't want to become addicted in doing. This is basically the opposite of anorexia, because these guys do eat but just make sure they burn all the calories they ate, and are forced to workout to get stronger. Because as men they want to precisely show that they can do anything(lift).

An article about the ugly side of feminist activism set off a heated debate online.
Becky Rodriguez's insight:

Michelle Goldberg was optismic about this topic because of everything that is going on the social media. Women are mostly the ones who use social medias to talk crap about one another. For example, twitter is one of those cites. Twieeting isnt the right thing to do because millions of people will see what you post! Once you post something theres no going back. Some people suffer from all of this. Some women still debate saying its not hurtful at all. Women need too oearn how to respectful one another and not jugde anyone.
