Adam Ruins Everything digs a little deeper into the obvious – that free online services sell our data to advertisers. On one hand, targeted ads sustain the free stuff we enjoy (like this website). On the other hand, we don’t know just how much of our data is kept and by whom.
A gospel choir passionately teaches its church members important lessons about the dangers of sharing too much on social media – through song. Next Sunday’s lesson: “Keep yo smartphone horizontal when shooting videos!”

Google+ may be on the rise, but big ol’ blue still has its charms. By that we mean we’re too lazy to move and restart our virtual life all over again. Show your Facebook loyalty with this icon hanger.
