Unchill Stan Twitter turned Beyoncé and Jay-Z's 'Mona Lisa' moment into a meme

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 20:27

Beyoncé and Jay-Z blessed us this weekend with their surprise joint album Everything Is Love

Then they unveiled the music video for "Apeshit" — which, by the way, they rented the LOUVRE for — and took the collective internet for a lesson in art history. It's incredible. 

So naturally, the internet had to ruin it.

ACLU petitions Amazon to stop selling surveillance technology to the government

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 19:38

The American Civil Liberties Union is delivering a petition to Amazon's Seattle headquarters today with more than 150,000 signatures. They are requesting for Amazon to stop providing the government with facial recognition technology.

"Amazon has entered the surveillance business, and they're selling to the government," reads the online ACLU petition, which has nearly 60,000 signatures of the 75,000 they want. Other organizations like Demand Progress and Fight for the Future acted in conjunction with the ACLU and collected more than 90,000 signatures elsewhere.

What the most successful people do, according to this meme

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 19:12

It seems like everyone on Twitter has an opinion about what makes a person successful. 

Last week, Twitter user @APompliano tweeted a list of things he believes "the most successful people" do. It's a pretty vague bunch of descriptors —  successful people "have laser focus" and "build incredible teams," he claims. 

Apparently, successful people and the protagonists of Disney movies have something in common: They "believe in themselves." Sure.

The most successful people I've met:

1. Read constantly
2. Workout daily
3. Are innately curious
4. Have laser focus
5. Believe in themselves
6. Build incredible teams
7. Admit they know very little
8. Constantly work to improve
9. Demand excellence in everything they do

Michelle Obama joins Laura Bush in taking on Trump's immigration policy

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 19:10

Former first lady Michelle Obama just weighed in on the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, and she's calling on members of all parties to wake up and take action.

Over the course of a six-week period, nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents at the border due to strict immigration policies. Now, immigrants who cross the border, including refugees seeking asylum, must be detained, which means their children are taken from their custody and sent to detention centers.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 19:06

The town of Hawkins, Indiana will be explored in a whole new medium starting this fall: comic books. 

A new line of comic book series based on Netflix's Stranger Things is kicking off in September through Dark Horse Comics, Entertainment Weekly reported Monday. The first series will focus on the character Will Byers and his harrowing time in the Upside Down during the first season.

Why the bizarre ‘Bus Simulator’ games are the perfect remedy for stress

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 18:42

When I get home from work tonight, I'm just gonna drive a bus. Yeah, I know I could fight zombies, survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, or save my princess (who didn't actually need any saving) from Bowser. 

But honestly? I'd rather just drive a bus.

SEE ALSO: 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' will have more than 60 characters

It's okay if you don't get where I'm coming from. For a lot of folks, spending hours rescheduling routes, shuttling around passengers, and, yes, picking up trash, sounds like a thankless bout of community service, not a video game. But Bus Simulator 18, while imperfect, sold me on a genre I didn't know I needed.  Read more...

'Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII' is leaving some fans behind. That's the whole idea.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 18:29

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII might not be for you anymore.

When Treyarch, the studio behind this year's entry in the series, revealed Black Ops IIII back in May, that reveal was accompanied by a revelation: No more campaign. For the first time, one of the biggest annual blockbuster roller coasters in video games won't have a story to tell.

SEE ALSO: Everything we know about 'Call of Duty: Black Ops 4'

To hear Treyarch explain it, that's the whole point.

"We've said that we wanted to build a game that's really built around the social gameplay experiences that you can play with your friends," co-studio head Dan Bunting said in an E3 interview.  The reason, he explained, is that's what Treyarch does best and it's also where fans are headed.

Instagram will shame you when you've wasted too much time in the app

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 18:01

If Instagram is the main cause of your phone addiction, the app may soon be able to help.

We've now gotten another look at how Instagram's upcoming "usage insights" feature will help users curb their Instagram addiction.

SEE ALSO: Instagram is proof shameless copying pays off

In addition to stats showing just how long you've spent in the app, Instagram will soon add a feature that can alert you after you've reached a pre-determined time limit in the app, according to new screenshots. The images were shared by developer Jane Manchun Wong, who's made a hobby out of digging through Instagram's code for unlaunched features. The photos show a feature that looks similar to the new app limits feature in iOS 12.  Read more...

8 mind-bending questions 'Westworld' needs to answer in its Season 2 finale

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 17:51

There is no other show on television quite like Westworld when it comes to keeping an audience guessing until the last minute. The entire first season of the show was predicated on not knowing who certain characters really were, when certain events were happening, and what all of its cryptic philosophical catchphrases really meant. The second season is more of the same.

SEE ALSO: Here's how Westworld brought the Drone Hosts to life

While some of the lingering questions of Season 1, like “what is the Maze,” “what happened to Elsie,” and “why do the welcome hosts insist on making guests pick a hat before they enter the park,” have been answered over the course of Season 2, each answered question has spawned several others. With the season finale of Westworld Season 2 approaching next Sunday, here are the questions the show will hopefully answer before the season’s end.  Read more...

7 activist groups supporting families at the border that need your help right now

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 17:48

Over the course of six weeks, the United States government has separated nearly 2,000 children from their parents. 

The heartbreaking increase in separations stems from the Trump administration's decision to double down on its immigration policies and follow a "zero-tolerance" protocol. As a result, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement now arrests immigrants, including refugees seeking asylum, who cross the border. Detained parents are separated from their children, who are sent to shelters.

Amazon Prime members save an extra 20% on pre-orders for the new 'Super Smash Bros.' and 'Mario Party' Switch games

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 17:39

Thanks to E3 2018, we've finally received the official confirmation for a ton of new games that we've been waiting slash dying for.

As expected, Nintendo completely blew it out of the water with numerous huge announcements: Our favorites consisted of new Nintendo Switch versions of Super Mario Party and Super Smash Bros. (Or as we like to call them, the two very best drinking video games of all time).

SEE ALSO: Thanks to E3 there are some huge gaming deals on Nintendo, Sony, Xbox, PS4, and so much more

And both are already available for pre-order on Amazon. Okay, so they don't come out until October (Mario Party) and December (Smash Bros.), but that's not that far off — it's already June and it feels like the holidays were just last month. Both pre-orders are running at $59.99, but if you're a Prime member, you can save an extra 20% and get them for $47.99 each. Amazing. Read more...

Nextdoor descends into chaos over e-scooter drama

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 17:34

Is there any greater joy than petty internet forum arguments that escalate quickly? You're right, what a silly question — of course there isn't! 

For months, the battle over dockless e-scooters has been playing out in city council meetings and legal spats across the country. Now, in cities such as San Francisco and Santa Monica, e-scooter companies like Bird and Lime are starting to come to some agreements with local governments — some with better deals than others.

But in the more personal, online neighborhood forum Nextdoor, the fight wages on — and it has gotten intense, personal, and downright dirty. Read more...

Your shower is the best place to listen to music

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 17:31

This is You Won't Regret It, a new weekly column featuring recommendations, tips, and unsolicited advice from the Mashable culture team.

By now, we know that we actually do think some really sharp thoughts in the shower. But what if you could think those great thoughts while also listening to "Cut to the Feeling"?

I once shunned shower music, perhaps traumatized by a former roommate's shower playlist. (In case you were wondering, it was comprised of four songs and four songs only, and one of those songs was by G-Eazy. The playlist never changed.) 

Now, though, I am a shower music evangelist.

Extreme volcanic eruptions could explain mysterious rock formation on Mars

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 17:23

Could a volcanic eruption be the key to unlocking the mysterious geological history of Mars?

Back in the 1960s, NASA's Mariner spacecraft discovered an extremely large and unusually soft rock formation. The makeup of the mass, now known as the Medusa Fossae formation, stumped researchers for decades because they were never able to determine how it got there.

But now, new research seems to answer that question — and maybe many others.

Beyoncé creeps on Twitter just like you do

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Mon, 06/18/2018 - 17:12

Beyoncé made the world stop once again when she and husband Jay-Z released their joint album Everything Is Love unexpectedly on Saturday afternoon. 

But despite the initial shock of an album drop and a new music video filmed in the Louvre (yes, that Louvre), these weren't the only surprises Queen Bey blessed us with. She also took time from her busy schedule to lightly roast her husband's former adversary, the rapper Nas, via Twitter like.

While folks were busy creating new email addresses to sign up for free trials of Tidal, Beyoncé – or someone with access to her Twitter account – appears to have been lurking through online reactions to the album. Read more...
