A dog is for life, not just for likes.
It’s a variation on the nearly-40-year-old slogan that’s impressed on us every Advent by the people at the Dogs Trust. But now it is becoming ever-more pressing as research conducted by the Blue Cross–another animal charity–suggests that there’s a chunk of people who would predicate their choice of dog or cat on the number of social media likes it is expected to garner.
Just let that sink in for a minute. One-in-seven of the 1,000 people questioned in the survey (carried out on behalf of the Blue Cross by OnePoll*) said that they would choose a specific breed of dog or cat based on an assumed arbitrary approval rating casually meted out by a gaggle of people, most of whom are likely strangers.

A story I recently saw in one Facebook group is an example how NOT to treat your client, EVER. After a maternity shoot, photographer Desiree Genera publicly bashed on her client Katrina Ortiz. She recorded live Facebook videos, calling her out for her looks, among other things. And it all started with a simple message.
After the shoot, Desiree gave Katrina the date when she was going to deliver the images. When Katrina contacted her on that day, to make sure the photos would be ready, Desiree completely lost it. She first sent angry messages to Katrina. And then, she recorded a few live videos, thrashing Katrina for “rushing her” and calling her out for her “fat thighs, stretch marks, cellulite, and the wig.”
GoPro has announced that they are cutting another 270 jobs as a part of their restructuring program. They had layoffs before, as they were on a rough path for the past year or so.
