So apparently “Winter is going”…or so I hear on the news and see through my shades! What great news that is too since I rather enjoy a bit of ice cream and would like to eat some in the open air without putting myself at risk of hypothermia. I knew you’d understand!

Facebook Is Advertising On… Instagram
It’s pretty obvious by now that I enjoy a little social media here and there (and everywhere)…all things in moderation and all that. But on Monday, whilst leisurely perusing my Instagram, I came across Facebook! A genuine social media Kinder Surprise. It was indeed a sponsored update from Facebook who seem to be on a genuine promo push.

The 2015 YouTube Music Awards
Over to YouTube and the second edition of the Google backed YouTube Music Awards will feature some big (medium) names in the industry (Ed Sheeran and Charli XCX) filming 15 new videos to be produced in partnership with Vice Media. The ceremony will stream online only and will feature awards for the usual suspects. Think Beyonce, Taylor Swift, One Direction…Yawn…
Twitter, The Bird and The Weasel
Moving on to Twitter and nothing delighted me more this week than the weasel catching a flight on a woodpecker across a London park #WeaselPecker. Now, the photo is apparently genuine which is 1.amazing, 2. meme worthy! And man, oh weasel pecker, did Twitter get to work. A selection of true gems below:

The Dress Really Did Break The Internet
Hey, remember #TheDress saga from last week? Of course you do! Tumblr, where the dress drama started, have just released some cold, hard figures about the sheer scale and reach of the troublesome garment:
- – 73 million: Total number of page views on the original dress post by swiked
- – 483,000: The number of notes left on the original post by the end of Friday
- – 140,000: Approximate number of pageviews per minute between 10:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. on Friday
- – 31: Total number of articles that BuzzFeed wrote about the dress
- – 5,000+: Number of fan mails swiked has received since posting the photo
The conclusion here is you are more likely to break the internet with a dress than with bare ass cheek. Ahem.
