Last week, we challenged you to combine everyday objects with doodles to create unique works of art. This theme was inspired by Christoph Niemann, a world renowned artist who specializes in mixed media illustration.
"It was a lot of fun to look at all those different submissions," said Niemann, who hosted our challenge. "I've always found that setting tight rules makes for the best results in series like these, and it's exciting to see such a range of approaches despite the limitations I gave to the artists."
The statistics speak for themselves, but they don’t tell the whole story.
Perhaps it’s because I’m a dog lover with a cat allergy, but the staggering amount of cat media available to internet users came as a surprise to me. With numbers like that, I couldn’t help but wonder: Who, exactly, is so drawn to this type of content? And what effects do cat-related media have on viewers? Read more...
Twitter may be stepping up its live events coverage, after all.
The company is planning to release a new feature, called Project Lightning, later this year. The photo-centric tool will allow users to browse tweets based on live events.

Project Lightning will be curated around live events, almost like Twitter's version of Snapchat Stories. They can include everything from major sporting events and music festivals to breaking news, such as the #BlackLivesMatter protests. In Twitter's app, these events will live in a new menu where users can browse as many as seven to 10 curated events a day, according to Buzzfeed. Read more...

Congratulations on your ascension to one of the most high-pressure and contentious jobs in tech. If you're reading this, it means you made it through the gauntlet of three former CEOs and Twitter board members with a history of butting heads — Ev Williams, your predecessor Dick Costolo, and your interim predecessor Jack Dorsey. (It also means you were impressive enough to prevent Dorsey pulling a Steve Jobs by making his interim title permanent.)
You have also run the gauntlet, and will no doubt continue to run the gauntlet, of well-intentioned and passionate Twitter-using big shots telling you how to fix Twitter. Keeping track of these opinions could be a full-time job in itself, and we're not just talking about the 8,500-word Chris Sacca screedRead more...
If there's anything (or anyone?) that knows more about me than I do, it's probably Facebook. So the social network should be pretty good at analyzing my data to figure out who my "true soulmate" is. Right?
According to a new app from Captain Quizz that has been making its way through your Facebook feed, my true soul mate isn't my girlfriend. It's my mom.
Like your resume and your cover letter, you know that a LinkedIn profile is must-have in your job search. It's not only a great platform for job seekers to showcase their work, but it also has the added benefit of having recruiters crawling all over it
So, it makes perfect sense for people to optimize their profile's potential. However, a surprising number of people ignore the most flexible and, arguably, most useful part: the "Summary" section
