Top Facebook Faux Pas

Top Facebook Faux Pas - Social media is a key part of the lives of most Millennials, and Facebook is the biggest player. As such, there are some basic rules of Facebook etiquette every Millennial should know and follow.

According to InsideFacebook.com, as of Feb 1, 2010, over 24 million Millennials (those aged 18 to 34) have Facebook accounts, which accounts for 52 percent of all Facebook users. That means there is a ridiculous amount of status updates, picture posting and messages sent by Gen Y’ers via the social media powerhouse. Hopefully most Millennials know not to do these things.

One of the best features of Facebook is its ability to make the world a little smaller and allow you to spread important information (when was the last time you sent an evite, we all just use Facebook these days); however, that can be abused so easily. No, we don’t care if you love Mafia Wars. Chances are if your friend isn’t already playing it, he/she doesn’t want to. And, before you send a group or event invite to literally your entire friend list, make sure it is even applicable to those friends. If your friend doesn’t live in your town, he/she is probably not going to join a group to support your local cause.

We all have pictures documenting things we are likely less than proud of and unfortunately it seems we all have friends with poor enough taste to actually post them on Facebook. Then they even tag you in the photo. Don’t do that. We’re just going to immediately detag and bug you until you take the picture down. On the flip side, it’s just as deplorable when you are tagged in a perfectly acceptable photo, but detag yourself just because you don’t want to appear with that person--that’s just douchey. (You know the drill, the guy or girl who wants to appear single and only seen with the “right” kind of people in pictures).

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
