Ari and I lament the burden of looking happy and productive on social media when inside your heart is actually breaking and you don't know what you are doing with your life.
Thanks to Facebook, the idea of 'de-friending' someone is not a foreign one. With a few simple clicks, you can wipe someone from your 'friends' list and never again be faced with a seemingly endless stream of birthday party photos from someone you're no longer close to.

The answer to "what do you want to be when you grow up?" may not exist for many of our young children today, as they will be working in jobs that have never been created before.
Some people think of Facebook as a time-suck. I am not one of those people. I use Facebook to make myself smarter. I think of it as my own personal "L...
While Facebook is enjoying their good (and bad) PR from this bit, I wouldn't start building them a float for the pride parade. Fill out your gender however you like, but don't forget that this is just another marketing ploy.
Why does it matter if a bunch of your fans are fake? Because they don't interact with your Page, and that interaction is one way that Facebook's notorious newsfeed algorithm determines who sees your post.
My 13-year-old daughter and I attended a portion of this past week's Wisdom 2.0 conference held in San Francisco. If you've never gone, it's a kind of...
