While everyone seems to want more and more followers on Instagram, actually having a lot can be more nuanced than one might initially think. A big criticism of the application — even from those with a lot of followers, has been an artificial depiction of a perfect life. In a time when so much seems fa...

While the once-popular Vine, a social media application on which users could post six-second video clips, was shut down in 2016, fans still continue to enjoy old Vines to this day. From the “LeBron James” vine to the “I just want to take a nap” vine, NYU students still love to reminisce over...

How much thought did you put into the last thing you retweeted, shared or direct messaged?

Filed under Uncategorized

Journaling — a self-indulgent practice of divulging our innermost thoughts onto paper.
