Daily Digit: Looking for a job? Be careful about what you post on social media
"A new study finds 70% of employers check a candidate’s social media accounts before hiring. While LinkedIn seems like the most logical site to peruse, employers head to Facebook more often. The study found that’s because Facebook often has the most incriminating information. Among the top disqualifying factors were excessive partying, poor grammar, illegal drug use and racist posts. On the flip side, 60% of job seekers look up the profile of their interviewer. However, 79% of those reported that their discoveries did not stop them from accepting the job."

You Give Me Butterflies - rhysiana - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Stiles had only turned on the TV for background noise while he tried to finish up his thesis proposal before the next day’s meeting with his advisor, that was all. It was a nature documentary. About butterflies, no less. Bland, soothing, not at all distracting, just enough extra noise to help the rest of his overactive brain focus.

Well, he was totally focused now, it just wasn’t on his thesis. Because now there was a man on his TV who was very distracting, talking about butterflies.


A story of entomology, procrastination, and nerdy flirting over the internet.

The Deliberate Awfulness of Social Media | The New Yorker
"We find ourselves today connected to vast repositories of knowledge and yet we have not learned to think. In fact, the opposite is true: that which was intended to enlighten the world in practice darkens it. The abundance of information and the plurality of worldviews now accessible to us through the internet are not producing a coherent consensus reality, but one riven by fundamentalist insistence on simplistic narratives, conspiracy theories, and post-factual politics. It is on this contradiction that the idea of a new dark age turns: an age in which the value we have placed upon knowledge is destroyed by the abundance of that profitable commodity, and in which we look about ourselves in search of new ways to understand the world."

Turn off push notifications
Notifications are no longer used to notify you of anything—they’re used by apps to beg for attention.


Facebook appears to be increasingly sending meaningless notifications to people who use the site less and less in hopes of enticing them back to it.


Like I said, none of these changes have significantly changed how much I use my phone, but they have definitely changed the ways in which I use it. My phone use is now intentional—I use my phone rather than wait for it to tell me what to do or what to pay attention to. In that sense, it's more like a computer: I intentionally check email, I intentionally check social media, and I can now actually read an article or book or play a game without being constantly bombarded with popups.
