The data Google has on you can fill millions of Word documents.

Data: The Guardian Finds Yours
The Guardian has a great article detailing all of the data that Google and Facebook have on you. It lists the huge amount of data that they have but also where you can find it. The gist of it is that they have everything you’ve ever searched, deleted, and even your locations. Couple this with the news that Google has acquired the GIF platform, Tenor, and it looks like Google is ‘acquiring’ more than GIFs. Well, if they’re going to store everything that you search, they might as well include some GIFs to switch it up.
Google is eating up your data and Tenor, just like how Chrome eats up your RAM.

Viral: Teens (Rightfully) Protest With Memes
Teens have been taking to the streets in the March For Our Lives protest (put together by the Parkland school shooting survivors). There has been some ridiculous backlash towards protesters having meme signs. We’ve already touched on the evolution of language and how memes/internet slang are a new form of communication. These teens are expressing their ideas in a way that they can relate to. If anything, this just shows how out of touch those who are against these protests are with modern life.
It's no different to marching with slogans.

YouTube: 90% Of Affiliate Ads Aren't Disclosed
Princeton University has revealed that 90% of YouTube & Pinterest ads are not disclosed. This is super problematic because the FTC states that affiliate marketing must be disclosed. Our guess is that they’re either finding loopholes or just ignoring the FTC letters. The full study is available here.

Twitter: Well Owl Be Damned
Creating a hoot on Twitter today is this owl ruining a Welsh wedding. The ring-bearing owl (because that’s a good idea) decided to fly at the best man. Maybe the owl caught him kissing the bride and this is its way of talon everyone?
The only marriage we can see here is between the Best Man's butt and the floor.
