Forget Facebook, forget Snapchat: Teens are doing it themselves

Thanks for stopping by! You can find the full post where we found it HERE Poor Facebook: The teens, they’re not so into it. The world’s largest social network was “big” and “made sense” circa 2004 or 2005, according to Monkey cofounder Isaiah Turner, but no longer. He and Ben Pasternak, 18 and 17 respectively, have launched a new social network — one they believe the teens will actually want. Monkey is an iOS app for people who have friends, and then they have “internet friends.” It’s a way to find more of the latter, the pair say, rather than connecting with people from school or your neighbourhood. Although, like every other app out there, Monkey still wants to mine your phone’s contacts. Read more… More about Teenagers, Monkey, Snapchat, Facebook, and Australia

Taxstone Denied Bail Over T.I. Concert Shooting

Thanks for stopping by! You can find the full post where we found it HEREDaryl “Taxstone” Campbell, host of the popular hip-hop podcast Tax Season, was arrested earlier this week in connection to last May’s deadly shooting at Irving Plaza. Yesterday, his bail was set at $500,000, but now, Reuters reports that a Manhattan judge has revoked his bail after a prosecutor said that a witness could link him to the shooting. Four people were shot at the concert, including rapper Troy Ave, who was arrested last year and has reportedly been feuding with Taxstone for years. Troy Ave’s bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter, was also killed in the incident. While Assistant U.S. Attorney Hagan Scotten contends that Taxstone shot McPhatter, Taxstone’s defense attorney argues that he was “a victim and not the initiator of the event.”
