Hyper Controlling Mom Wants To Track Kid At College

With all the stuff we've heard of and experienced with helicopter parents in the last few decades, it's refreshing to see someone actually stand up to their mom who's trying to control their social life while not under their roof.

Twitter Thread Will Make You See Why Facebook's 10 Year Challenge Meme Isn't Harmless

Author, Kate O'Neill used her platform on Twitter to encourage people participating in online activities like the recent, trending profile picture aging meme on Facebook, to slow down and think about it critically. O'Neill asks people to consider how willingly posting that information online for Facebook's seemingly sentient algorithm to digest, can have a ripple effect on society as a whole; how that information can be fed into worldwide databases, sold off to advertising agencies, and used to exploit the very people that upload it, without considering the impacts, in the process. She doesn't aim to inspire panic in this Twitter thread, but instead, she wants us to think critically when considering the fast-changing landscape of the world around us. Some solid advice!
