Viral, cash for dirty rats and Twitter spam

Megatron kickin itOk I am not going to lie, but last night was the first night that my parents’ warning of payback or karma being a bitch when you have kids actually came true. I was not an easy child and last night Baby Espo proved that he really is my son. After we had a problem with the deadbolt on our condo and my key was stuck in it, I was on the other side of the door and boom he crawls and slams it shut on me. Did I mention that he’s not even 10 months old yet? So 162 bucks later and our door works again after I had to kick it in to make sure he didn’t hurt himself hanging in the house by himself. How was your week? Did it have any unexpected twists and turns? Hope it was a good one and that you have a great weekend. Without further blabberin’, here’s this week’s edition of Five for Friday.

Over 3 years later, “deleted” Facebook photos are still online – Remember when Facebook said they deleted all those pictures from their servers when you clicked delete on your profile?

New York Transit Workers Give Prize for Photo of Ugliest Rat on Subway – what can I say but genius in terms of driving publicity for all the wrong reasons. Sure rats are unhealthy and nasty, but if you snap the ugliest one get paid – kind of like Pokemon with a side of the Black Death.

Employers, workers navigate pitfalls of social media – one thing I have never understood about social media on the corporate side is when a company has an individual as the face of their brand. Sure social media rock stars are great to have in your camp but when they are you, well they can take followers with them and boom companies are back at square one. Ever wonder what this kind of flopping is worth, well according to the lawsuit in this article $42,500 a month. YIKES.
