No lasting negative effect on Facebook or Google after smear campaign

Written on May 22, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Despite a huge blowback from a Facebook–funded smear campaign against Google due to the latter’s privacy settings, neither companies has been significantly damaged.

Data from social media analytics firm Netbase state that the sentiment about the two companies changed very little after the issue. The firm processed data from more than 70,000 blogs, news stories, forum posts, and comments and tweets about the social networks.

The negative sentiment about Facebook and Google rose on May11, the evening the news broke out, then peaked the next day. However by May 13, negative became positive and by May 17, sentiment about Facebook had returned to its pre-issue levels even when mentioned with Google. It appears that Google was hardly affected.

Lady Gaga Gives Birth on ‘Born This Way’ Music Video

Written on March 01, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

She did it again! Another epic music video from the artist who calls herself the ‘Mother Monster.’

Lady Gaga is known for her extravagant (and lengthy) music videos and so the video for ‘Born This Way’ is not an exception. This time, she shared to the world her pro-creation antics by giving birth to the concepts of good and evil.

The music video for ‘Born This Way’ is more than 7 minutes long. It features Lady Gaga in many awkward positions and in a world composed of different races of people. The song mainly depicts gender equality.

At the start of the video, Gaga can be heard on a voice over speaking these lines:

“As the wombs numbered and the mitosis of the future began, it was perceived that this infamous moment in life is not temporal, it is eternal. and thus began the the beginning of the new race, a race within the race of humanity, a race which bears no prejudice, no judgment, but boundless freedom. But on that same day, as the eternal mother hovered in the multiverse, another more terrifying birth took place: the birth of evil.”

See the fabulous video after the break.
