Beyoncé was featured on the long-running blog project Humans of New York, where she discussed the blessing (everyone remembers your name!) and curse (no one will stop singing "Single Ladies"!) of having a famous moniker. And just like that, the rest of the internet joined in to share their woes. Some of these names almost seem too good to be true. 

Hopefully now she knows that she isn't alone!

From the Huffington Post:

If a Facebook friend posts something that you feel indicates he or she could be thinking about self harm, you'll be able to click the little arrow at the top right of the post and click "Report Post." There, you'll be given the options to contact the friend who made the post, contact another friend for support or contact a suicide helpline, the University of Washington reported on Wednesday.

After that, Facebook will look at the post. If Facebook feels like the post indicates distress, it will contact the person who posted it. That person will be greeted with the following pop ups when he or she next logs in.



A writer named Ijeoma Oluo has shared an interesting Twitter conversation she had with a 14-year-old, racist troll on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and the result is truly inspiring.

"You guys I'm a mom," she wrote on Facebook. "You think I'm going to let some 14 year old outlast me? I got love for days."

Warning: there are a lot of racial slurs and other awful stuff in here, but make sure to read all the way through to the end.
