There’s being into video gaming and there’s identifying as a hardcore gamer. Both are fine! But the latter group has developed a well-earned reputation for being rife with bigoted jerks, from the whole mess over Gamergate to more recent instances like PewDiePie’s repeated instances of racism. It’s also not a…
Monster Hunter: World’s character creator isn’t the most realistic or complex one out there, but that hasn’t stopped players from making all kinds of weird avatars.
Facebook, the social network used by, oh, a few billion people, is making a change to its iconic news feed. Instead of being dominated by a mix of links from friends and news stories from pages you like, you’ll be seeing a lot more posts from your family and friends in an effort to strengthen personal connections with…
Is that a camp in your pocket, or are you just happy to see us?
Last week, a Nintendo Switch update made it possible to share short videos of select first-party games on social media. The feature isn’t perfect, but it doesn’t matter. Right now, despite being in the middle of fall game season, many video game fans are talking about months-old Nintendo releases instead.
Something I like is popular now, and that is bad. Thanks to GIF databases like Giphy, the reaction GIF, once a careful and elaborate art form, is now a bland mass market dominated by a handful of outlet-approved celebrity faces.

With many popular brands struggling to find a voice on social media, Arby’s spent 2016 charming an entirely new audience via gaming and pop culture papercraft creations.

Miitomo, Nintendo’s Mii-driven social network, is tearing up the app store charts right now with millions of new users on day one. The app’s explosive popularity is simple to explain: it’s hilarious to use.
John “TotalBiscuit” Bain is not the first to struggle with social media as he’s become more popular, nor is he the first to announce he’s quitting a service like Twitter. But uniquely, the YouTube star is living with terminal cancer, and his statement on why he’s leaving is gut-wrenching and understandable.
A story went viral last night about an upcoming smartphone app named “Peeple,” which bills itself as being like the popular review service Yelp, except for humans instead of bars and restaurants. People are horrified by this idea. I don’t think we need to worry, though, because I seriously doubt much will come of it.
Once a Snapchat message is over, that's it. You can't look at it anymore (without technical kn0w-how, anyway). And that's exactly what makes Snapchat the perfect vehicle for some messed up messages in this short film by James Corbett.
We all hear about how we should update our privacy settings on Facebook all the time, but for some people, it takes a prank like this one—where a guy comes up to random folks and tells them real details about their life—for it to really hit home.
