Facebook friend request scams and viral hoax messages are rampant. Here's what you need to know about spotting and avoiding them.
It happens to everyone: You have close friends at a certain point in your life, but you all get older. Families grow, jobs change, moves happen – and suddenly, you’ve fallen out of touch with people you once saw and spoke to all the time.
Thanks to social media, it’s easier than ever to stay connected with old friends, classmates, and neighbors. But being “Facebook friends” with someone or following them on Twitter doesn’t necessarily mean you’re actively in touch with that person.
Going through a recent breakup? You’re not the only one. A significant peak in breakups occurs two weeks before the winter holidays. It’s suggested that this season of breakups occurs because many would rather break up than “meet the family” (which typically coincides with the holidays) or are looking forward to the New Year, and therefore a fresh start.
