Are you lying about anything online? 

 

Be honest, have you really read and loved the entire works of Dostoevsky in the original Russian? Do you really celebrate the entire catalogue of Woody Allen’s early works? If you’re lying about anything in an online profile, it could soon be a criminal offense if the White House gets its way.

In this age of “following” people, businesses and just about any inanimate object that could possibly be tracked, watched or featured, France has done something that might cause the collective mouths of we Americans to form that perfect “oh” of disbelief: They have banned the use of the words Facebook and Twitter from French TV and radio news unless used in an actual story about the companies themselves.

Since I moved away from home, conversation with my friends and boyfriend has become extremely important to me. Thus, I will condemn myself and say that I am a proud junkie of social media.

You will see me constantly switching tabs between Facebook and math quizzes, chatting, messaging or fi nding new games to play like Why? What’s up? on our statuses.

We laugh about our day and rant about the unfairness of the society. We even start movements across the globe by creating groups and events.

You can comment on TheDMonline.com again, and I hope you are as excited as I am.

 

First of all, I'd like to apologize for the delay in resolving the issue. We realized back  in August that there was an issue with our online registration system. People were having trouble being authorized as users on the website, which prevented them from commenting.  In order to resolve the issue we had to disable registration for everyone, and then proceed to locate the problem and determine how to fix it.

Facebook is a wonderful thing. I absolutely love it, though I’m not sure what that says about me. Either I’m eager to stay well-informed about my friends and family, or I’m just incredibly nosy. It doesn’t matter to me which one it is; I still love it.

A few weeks ago, I threw a party. Being all college students there was alcohol there, but the fact that it is summer, the party was at my house, most of us are underage and my parents were home meant that we had to be sneaky.

This semester was a big one for the social networking website. Good ole’ Ackbar has close to 8,000
