Ever wonder “is this a friend request to ignore?” Most people have encountered at least one ‘unusual’ Facebook friend request. That said, adding a new friend on Facebook is more strategic than ‘accept’ or ‘ignore.’ After all, admitting someone into your inner circle can also mean exposing them to your private family photos and even your physical coordinates (i.e. Facebook “check-ins”).

Below is a list of seven types of Facebook users you should consider ‘ignoring’ should they hit you up with a Facebook friend request.

What’s really new about the new iPhone? Rumor has it the iPhone 5 will be thinner than the iPhone 4, but longer. Approximate measurements are 125mm by 58.5mm by 7.4mm—about 10mm more in height, less 2mm in thickness, with the same width.

The most striking feature, however, is a new rear casing – which some see as a major change – a flat metal panel, themed for the symmetrical artsy design of the iMAC. The back is almost totally made of aluminum alloy, though we’re unsure if it’s for functionality sake or for design.

Etiquette is about more than the correct fork or knife. In today’s society, which is increasingly dependent on technology (with texting more common place than talking), business etiquette is as critical as ever.

In conjunction with National Business Etiquette Week (June 3 to 9), Elizabeth Venturini, a college admissions and career strategist, debuts: ‘Charm School for the College-Bound,’ a workshop for young people on the essentials of business etiquette.

If you live in the NYC area, you probably complain about the NYC Subway, the LIRR and Metro North. You’ve likely missed a train because it arrived too early or were late to an appointment because it arrived late. A study last year showed that only 71% of riders reached the train on time +/- 5 minutes.

It’s nothing unique to New York City, it happens in almost every metropolis in the world. The same thing happens in Europe and in Asia. No one really knows when a train or bus will arrive.

Last week I wrote about Charice, one of the Top Women on YouTube, who found stardom by becoming a YouTube singing sensation turned mainstream artist. The feedback was overwhelming and it inspired me to write about other women who have found fame via YouTube.

Imagine having 500 million views on your YouTube channel? Today, Jenna Marbles (@Jenna_Marbles) has hit 527 million plus views, signing up more than three million subscribers. That makes her the most popular woman on YouTube. Jenna, who talks about anything from makeup advice to what clothes to bring on a short vacation, is a 25 year old star. Jenna Marbles (Mourney) started her channel as a simple “what to/how to” channel for women with her first upload in February 2010.

When a woman falls for man, it happens because her heart tells her so –right? Precious! But wait, is that really the case? How many times does the average woman fall in love? I surmise the answer can be derived from intense research of Sex and the City episodes –that’s arguable, perhaps. However, according to new research by the University of Texas at San Antonio, it is hormones that determine how and what kind of man a woman falls for.

Reality check –imagine you’re having a Social media PR crisis… now what?

It’s Monday morning; you go to check your email. Email one; it’s your Webmaster (who also serves as your Media Director). You find out that over the weekend he’s suddenly become afflicted with amnesia! Not to worry, it is obviously not severe; he still remembers how to email. Hmm. Weird!
