  • Instagram announced in a widely-shared blog post that users now can also post photos in portrait and landscape modes, besides the already existing square format.


  • Gizmodo has a well-researched article claiming there were almost no actual women on the recently hacked cheating site. I guess that makes it even worse for the men who got outed as users of the site.
