Former That Wife Finds New Outlet For Getting Attention

Jenna, now living absolutely, has discovered Periscope. For those of you who don’t know, Periscope is basically a live webcam/webcasting app where people can use their phone to broadcast whatever they want. A lot of people use it for things like walking around interesting places and talking about what they see, or at events where they describe the scene for people who aren’t there. Others use it to record or broadcast classes for review or home students. Some use it to show off their penises. Jenna of course uses it to sit and talk about herself and how hard life is.

So instead of book club, let’s do a live watch of ‘Testing’, episode 1 of Jenna’s Periscope.

On to the TL;DR…

White Savior Barbie Is The Latest Barbie Instagram

If you miss the adventures of that hipster Barbie instagram, maybe you’ll enjoy Barbie Savior. It’s an account evidently making fun of white girls who go to Africa and take voluntourism selfies.

So go have fun with that if you’re into those barbie lampoon gram feeds!

The Instagram Thirsty Begin Freaking Out Over Platform Changes

Instagram, the social media platform where boring people can make their lives look amazing, is changing their display algorithm to prioritize posts they think you’ll like the most instead of displaying your feed in chronological order. Naturally this means the intarwebs needs to freak out.

Even Kendall Jenner is complaining about the algorithm armageddon despite instagram saying they “assure you nothing is changing with your feed right now”. Unfortunately all the notification begging is having the opposite effect, turning some followers off a feed completely. No matter – the instagram famous will probably all quit the platform in protest, sort of like how they all quit pinterest when that platform started forbidding affiliate linking. Oh wait.

Hey Natalie Jean Can Kon-Mari Correctly

Hey Natalie Jean, so minimalist that she needs a storage unit, is giving Kon-Mari another try.

This post came on the heels of Natty surrounded by a pile of collaboration clothes and telling us “the more denim the better”.

So I guess the idea of Kon-Mari is to throw out everything and get all new stuff every 3 months? Or no? Because that’s what all the bloggers pushing it seem to be doing.

Study Suggests Kids Don’t Want To Be On Their Parent’s Social Media

In a study that almost confirms what pearl clutchers have been saying for years, many kids entering their tween and teen years say they would really rather their parents leave them out of their social media.

…[R]esearchers at the University of Michigan, studied 249 parent-child pairs distributed across 40 states and found that while children ages 10 to 17 “were really concerned” about the ways parents shared their children’s lives online, their parents were far less worried. About three times more children than parents thought there should be rules about what parents shared on social media.

Children gave examples of peers laughing at old youtube videos posted by parents, or having to ask their parents to remove images posted to instagram without consulting them. Some parents of course feel that sharing intimate details of potty training or other parenting #strugglz is their right because it helps all parents if everyone shares honestly.

I guess we’ll see how this shakes out if parents start getting sued in a few years, eh?
