I mean seriously… y’all aren’t all online ALL the time are you? [insert side-eye]
Well according to a study by Men’s Health, if you’re in the “A” you’re probably tweeting or facebooking right now – just like my friend @UbringMeJoi in the photo above!
Atlanta ranks as the second most socially networked city in the United States and falls right in behind Washington, D.C., while Denver, Minneapolis and Seattle round out the top five.
The number of people Facebook and LinkedIn users per capita, followed by Twitter users. Online traffic generated from sites such as Myspace, Friendster, Reddit, Digg and chat rooms also were included in the research.
According to the AJC, the study doesn’t identify specific reasons we’re more wired than others. But our number could be larger due to our ever-grinding hip-hop community and the amount of colleges and universities in the area.
It also doesn’t hurt that Atlanta is considered a recent “it” city status among filmmakers.
Now tweet that!!!
Facebook is so popular these days that just about everyone has their own lil profile… but the next time you update your status, your “friends” may not be the only ones watching!
While you’re posting photos of your brand new Porsche or of you and your friends popping bottles in the club, consider who’s keeping track of that information.
What if one of your new Facebook “friends” started posting reminders on your wall that you should pay your bills? Would you cuss them out and keep it moving?
OK… How about a debt collector contacted your family members’ via Facebook asking them to deliver you a message? Or perhaps hit up one of your former classmates inquiring about you?
One company did just that and is now suffering from legal issues! Continue Reading…
Rihanna and Ciara went head to head last night via the social networking site, Twitter.
Apparently during CiCi’s guest appearance on E! Fashion Police, she said some not so nice things about Rih-Rih’s attitude that didn’t sit so well with the Bajan princess, sparking the following response:
And yes… you already know Ciara responded!

I know I wouldn’t. That’s a true violation, but a man in Baltimore was recently asked for his social media passwords when he reapplied for his former job as a corrections offer, and to make matters worse, he had to watch as his personal page and its postings were perused by an investigator during the interview!
These dayum jobs are going way to far! What’s next? Bank account and voice mail PINs?

Ciara and 50 Cent got into a battle of words via the social networking site, Twitter recently.
The pair, who were once rumored to be an item although they were rarely seen together, are apparently following each other very closely on twitter.
Fiddy visited the Playboy Mansion over the weekend and hit up his twitter to brag online about his “pimp’n.” He even wrote about gathering a few “hoes” on twitter.
That apparently struck a chord with his “ex” Ciara, who promptly struck back with a few subliminal messages. The two lovebirds exchanged pleasantries for quite some time, to the amusement of their legions of fans.

Comedian/Syndicated talk show host Rickey Smiley showed his true colors this morning on the social networking site Twitter. I had no idea what was going on til loyal reader Gwendella hit me up on email:
Re: Rickey Smiley
This fool is losing his mind. He cursed that girl out cause she asked him ‘really?’ after he cursed someone else out. He’s loyal to Steve something serious. You know Mary was everywhere this morning.
So I head over to check out Rickey’s page… and he’s trying to explain himself. Talbmout how Christians aren’t exempt from cursing yada… yada.. yada…
But when I saw what Rickey posted that actually started all the backlash I couldn’t believe my eyes… Continue Reading…
Kanye West hit twitter last week and made light of his infamous Taylor Swift mic snatching incident in a comical note he sent to Britney Spears last Friday via Twitter.
Last Tuesday, Spears released a new song “Hold It Against Me,” that reached No. 1 on iTunes. Ironically, West and Jay-Z dropped their new track, “H.A.M.,” the same day, and it came in at No. 2.
West graciously acknowledged Spears’ chart victory with the following tweet:
Fans were divided but I thought it was hilarious that Kanye could laugh at himself.
Kanye has since deleted the tweet but his battle with the media rages on. After facing off with NBC’s Matt Lauer last year, the outspoken rapper took to Twitter to defend himself over the tweet.
‘Ye’s comment apparently angered some Britney fans and others who interpreted it as a jab at the pop star. Some even felt that he was being insensitive about the whole Taylor Swift thing…. but Kanye insists it was not an attack on her and hit the tweets to explain: Continue Reading…
