The Brand New Truths of Social Media Advertising

The World Wide Web is a beautifully bizarre land where a Kickstarter for a man making potato salad can raise $55,000. At the same time, the 2017 Women’s March, the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history, can become a reality through a grassroots Facebook campaign. “Weird” doesn’t even begin to cover the stupidly influential amalgamations...

Content Warning: Physical and sexual violence, harassment “Would you be opposed to undressing me and smothering my naked body in peanut butter?” I’m the Tinder girl most Tinder boys seem to hate.
