My 2 cents: Put satire of white privilege in 'The Good Place' | Reading Eagle - LIFE

Socially Awkward Media: Get with the times edition — One of the web's oldest companies is having a bad month. First, news broke that nearly half a billion Yahoo email accounts were hacked and users' information put up for sale on the Dark Web. That's bad. What's also bad is the story that came out this week reporting that Yahoo helped the NSA snoop incoming emails for its users.

Digital Watch by Adam Richter — This whole fake scare of clowns terrorizing places around the country has become - ahem - a circus. In addition to the Instagram-initiated hoax that led police in Berks to issue warnings to four schools, two girls in Milwaukee were arrested for similar clown-related threats on social media.

Latino Lunch: El Faro Restaurant in Reading, Pa. | Reading Eagle - LIFE — This month we managed to check two Latino restaurants off our list of places to dine in Reading. Los Tainos on Chestnut Street had good reviews on Google and 4.7 out of five stars. But it closed two months ago. (Sad trombone.)

Socially Awkward Media: All apologies edition — Hillary Clinton got into trouble over emails, Blackberrys, home servers, etc., reportedly because she didn't want to carry two devices with her. A now-former North Dakota public official just shows why she might have been on the right track.

Albright College student’s racist video shows the internet is forever — On Thursday, we received a tip about a white student at Albright College who posted a photo of herself in blackface. Turns out, it was actually a Snapchat video, and involved two students. It was a stupid, hurtful act that the students no doubt regret, but it's an important lesson in the permanence of the internet.

Embrace the silliness of Talk Like a Pirate Day — That's one of many jokes you may hear today, on "Talk Like A Pirate Day." it's one of those absolutely silly "holidays" that became popular thanks to a syndicated columnist and remains popular thanks to the internet. A more accurate name might be "Talk Like A Pirate Stereotype Day."

Adam Richter: You are to blame for news hoaxes on social media | Reading Eagle - NEWS

Socially Awkward Media: No-win situation edition — Sometimes no matter what you do on social media, you can't win. That's not entirely true; you can almost always find a way out without humiliation or a visit from law enforcement. But none of these people took the road more cautiously traveled.
