Over 25? Maybe don't admit you smoke weed in your dating profile

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 16:11

We love a data-backed online dating tip – especially one tied to the holiday of choice for stoners everywhere. Unfortunately, this one isn't too promising for smokers who make their weed interest public.

According to data from dating app Hinge, revealing an interest in marijuana on a dating profile can actually work in your favor – but only if you're under 25.

Per the team's number crunchers, users under 25 who say they smoke weed see, on average, a 10 percent increase in likes.

But for those 25 and older, admitting you smoke weed on your profile results in a 25 percent decrease in likes. That number jumps to a 35 percent decrease for users over 40.  Read more...

Someone wise once said, "When you love something, PowerPoint it." 

An angel amongst us, @buzzkillary, has taken these words to heart. Hillary, bless her heart, hopped on Twitter on Thursday night to share with the world an extensive PowerPoint presentation revolving around the rumors that have swirled for months about Lorde and Jack Antonoff, the producer of her album Melodrama.

Why I'm not excited about 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 15:15

You can call Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War the "most ambitious crossover event in history" — and it might as well think it is. But there's something about it that feels a bit ... familiar.

Sure, Infinity War is going to make a ton of money opening weekend. It's going to be talked about, and talked about, and talked about. Rightly so: It's the culmination of Marvel's entire Cinematic Universe, a world that has far reaching roots and references and callbacks in not only each one of its movies (18 different films in 10 years, if you're counting), but nearly every bit of popular culture

New 'Fortnite' 50 v 50 mode leads to huge, collaborative battles

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 15:04

Fortnite Battle Royale has a new 50 v 50 mode and it's absolutely insane.

The new mode that launched on Thursday turns the battle royale game on its head. Instead of fighting to be the last one standing by yourself or with a small group of up to four players, you now have a team of 49 other players who (mostly) have your back. The only way to win is by killing off everyone on the other team.

It's actually the second time there's been a 50 v 50 mode in Fortnite, but this time there have been a bunch of much-needed improvements added. First of all, the two teams enter the map on separate buses so it's not complete madness right off the bat. Second, the zone for the final showdown is known right off the bat so people can head there and start building their opposing forts in preparation, which leads to some huge structures. Read more...

Yep, the feds grow and sell marijuana. Here's how.

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 15:00

Is the government really growing weed?

In the 2008 stoner staple Pineapple Express, a secret military facility experiments with growing marijuana in the 1930s. A euphoric soldier, high off what the lab calls "Item 9," says he feels like a "slice of butter" and then exclaims, "This is the bee's knees!"

Michelle Pfeiffer gets asked baffling sexist question at 'Scarface' event

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 14:49

When the Scarface cast and director reunited at 2018's Tribeca Film Festival, they probably thought a lot about how far Hollywood has come since the 1983 film. And yet, during a Q&A following the film screening, actress Michelle Pfeiffer was asked – you guessed it – about her weight.

New iPhones with OLED screens may not be cheaper than $1,000

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 14:44

We all want the iPhone X to be cheaper, but that might not happen anytime soon because of LG.

According to the Wall Street Journal, LG Display is reportedly struggling to produce OLED displays for Apple to use in future iPhones. Dividing OLED screens between Samsung, which is currently the only supplier, and LG Display could have meant lower prices for consumers.

Per the report, LG has apparently failed to meet production schedules in order to begin mass production of OLED displays for new iPhones.

Dave Grohl invited a fan onstage and was blown away by the guy's performance

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 14:42

Dave Grohl probably just wanted to let a fan have a good time, but he got a lot more than he bargained for.

During Wednesday night's Foo Fighters show in Austin, Texas, the former Nirvana drummer invited an eager fan onto the stage to play a song. The fan, who wore Gene Simmons' classic face paint, at first didn't say his name, so Grohl had no choice but to call him "Kiss Guy." 

And Kiss Guy brought it.

Although Grohl hesitated when offering his guitar to Kiss Guy, it wasn't long before he realized the talent hiding behind the makeup. Playing along with the Foo Fighters' "Monkeywrench," Kiss Guy immediately showed that he's a force to be reckoned with. Not only could he keep up with the rest of the band, but he confidently added solos and brought plenty of stage presence.  Read more...

Robot vacuum caught getting frisky with bathroom scale

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 14:12

There's nothing more awkward than walking in on someone getting some action. 

It's especially awkward when that someone is, uh, a robot vacuum.

SEE ALSO: This machine is basically a Roomba for waterways

Redditor briannebellaxo walked in on her robot vacuum decidedly not cleaning her floors. Instead it was engaged in what appeared to be some serious business time with her bathroom scale. 

She managed to grab footage of the action, with steamy Marvin Gaye playing in the background.

Naturally, this inspired a flurry of puns that escalated quickly.

LG G7 will have a dedicated Google Assistant button, report claims

Mashable - Social Media Marketing tips - Fri, 04/20/2018 - 14:10

LG's next flagship smartphone, the G7 ThinQ, will have a button that will activate Google Assistant, CNet claims citing source familiar with the smartphone. 

That would make the G7 the first ever phone to have such a button — not even Google's Pixel phones have it.

We've seen something similar on Samsung's flagships of late, which have a dedicated Bixby button. The approach hasn't seen much love from users, so it'll be interesting to see how LG's customers will respond to having a dedicated assistant button on their phones — especially since users won't be able to reprogram the button to do something else.  Read more...
