Facebook: A place for people who don't matter

I bet you thought this would be another one of those "you don't know any of your FB friends IRL" rants.

Nope.

Amy Nicholson Joins Supply & Demand

Supply & Demand has added filmmaker Amy Nicholson to its roster. A creative director, commercial director and Oscar qualifying documentarian, Nicholson arrives with vast agency experience on accounts for Nike, Prudential, Yoplait, Black & Decker, Coke, Heineken, HP and ESPN.

Nicofresh's poster banned on grounds of race & age

See the poster above? Where the handsome young black man snuggling up to the much older, but clearly still attractive, woman in a manner that suggests they are more than just friends? Yes it's been banned, but no, not because it's showing an interracial couple. And not because it's showing a couple with a huge age difference. It's been banned because it's suggesting interracial couples & older women are taboo.

Misha Collins asks writers to work for free, gets ass handed to him.

Update. This is the part where you think I'm going to tell you this particular one has been removed, right? Well, since I'm not part of this club and so I can't see their super secret list.

Facebook Messenger's Mobile App Terms of Service says it can record your conversations

Do you ever sign a lengthy contract without reading it? Of course not, you say, and I'll call you a liar. Every time you click "accept" on those terms of services without reading it, you just agreed to a contract. So what did you just agree to let that Facebook Messenger App, downloaded over a billion times already, can do on your phone?

Yes Sir and Man Made announce social popup barber shop.

Pop-up stores are so old hat by now they're hardly worth a mention, but at least this one serves an actual purpose. This coming September, British Men's online groomer shop Yes Sir! and London brick-and-mortar grooming shop Man Made are making a pop-up shop where your shave and a haircut cost you nothing more than a tweet with a hashtag or instagram photo. Nice way to get the punters to try out both stylist and product alike.
