Social Media Notes

Here’s this week’s round-up of social media (& sometimes tech) news. Come back weekly for what I hope to be a fun & informative blog post on social stories that caught my eye throughout the week! 

Some Snapchat news:

And in other news:

  • A group of researchers are looking to see whether your social media posts can reveal health/medical conditions you may have. Example: They found ‘clinically obese’ individuals tended to use words that discussed how they were stationary – sitting, being still, planted, rest, etc. The bigger question at hand – would you want to allow hospitals/doctors to monitor your posts if it could help your health? Also, how to separate relevant posts from all the noise (for which there would be lots).
