In September, Selena Gomez announced that she was taking a break from social media, right before she sought help for anxiety and depression. However, now that the singer is home and doing much better, she is yet to make a return to social media. According to a report by Hollywood Life, a source close to Gomez has revealed, "Selena is not focusing any interest on returning to social media anytime soon. She knows she will have to return at some point but it's going to be completely different and more promotional than anything else."

The rabbit hole of negativity it brings is something she really doesn't want to be a part of anymore. She wants to get to the end of the year with family and friends and be happy and healthy. People close to her are really supporting her to get better and fully support her decision to not focus on social media," the insider added. However, Selena looks … [Read more...] about Why Selena Gomez plans to stay off social media after treatment?

That was worth an eyeroll and an indulgent snicker from the spawn. Game 3, it was, Ena Matthews in the stands at the Air Canada Centre with husband Brian, proud parents of the Maple Leaf stud who scored his first goal of the first round Monday as his team wedged itself back into post-season aspirations. “She’s probably going to wear it to every game now,” Matthews grinned.

It was Christina Marleau’s idea, apparently. “I think all the wives and girlfriends got them,” mumbled Matthews, turning to tuck his skates into his cubicle after Wednesday’s practice.

I don’t post or read social media in the month of December. I’ve been taking this online break for three years. It’s a good way to reset your relationship with Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, or Facebook. This is an installment of Business Insider’s “Your Brain on Apps” series that investigates how addictive apps can influence behavior. A new slang term is spreading around my friends and peers in New York: “extremely online.” As in, “Of course I saw his post.

I am trying to connect with someone using LinkedIn and they keep blowing off my messages. How many do I send before I just take a hint?That’s a tricky question because their disinterest might have everything to do with LinkedIn and nothing to do with you. Or, maybe they are just really busy and behind in checking that inbox. I find that I get so spammed through LinkedIn (well, most social media platforms, if I’m honest) that I regularly glaze over legitimate messages.

If you ever bump into them in person, they might remember you as the person who sent them six messages on LinkedIn.
