When I learned about debugging links on Facebook:

Life-changer alert for Community Managers across the globe: "Been around the world and I, I, I.." I can now debug links.

whatshouldwecallsocialmedia:

OK, I am apparently very late to the party, but this was a revelation and I can’t just not share. I apologize in advance if I’m posting something old. 

So you know this really stupid thing that happens with links?

It’s actually the worst thing in the world. WELL, to fix the problem, all you have to do is copy & paste the link here. Once you press debug, try the link again and all your problems should be solved!

Tasteful or tasteless?

After getting bombarded with hate tweets for about an hour this afternoon, AT&T removed an image from Twitter that had been meant as a 9/11 tribute—a photo showing a hand holding a phone up in front of the Tribute in Light searchlights. “We apologize to anyone who felt our post was in poor taste. The image was solely meant to pay respect to those affected by the 9/11 tragedy,” the company wrote in a follow-up tweet.

Worst startup idea in history or a marketing campaign gone terribly wrong? 
theatlantic:

The Real Problem With a Service Called ‘Ghetto Tracker’

A service called “Ghetto Tracker” appeared online at the beginning of this week and quickly drew criticism for its racist and classist overtones. Shortly after, the site was renamed “Good Part of Town.” Its creator, who would only identify himself as a 30-something-year-old in Tallahassee, told Gawker: “This was originally seriously developed as a travel tool and the name ‘Ghetto Tracker’ was meant to be something that people would remember.”
The basic premise of Ghetto Tracker/Good Part of Town — to crowdsource travel advice – actually isn’t so outrageous, but the framing, even without the word “Ghetto” in the name, and the intention — to label whole geographic areas as “good” or “bad,” “safe” and “unsafe” — make the operation distasteful.
