Social Media is just like Chocolate and French Fries


By web gangsta | Published:

There’s an old adage about how french fries at the bottom of the McDonald’s bag always taste better than the french fries in the container.

Maybe that’s why FIVE GUYS loads up that fry bag with extra fries, because they know that the fries in the bag taste better than the fries in the cup.

It’s like BONUS FRIES! Continue reading SOCIAL MEDIA IS JUST LIKE CHOCOLATE AND FRENCH FRIES

By web gangsta | Published:

Millennials, Generation Y.

Whatever you call them, we’re still talking about people who were born roughly from 1982 – 2004.

The 25 Best Companies to work for – if you want a HUGE salary


By web gangsta | Published:

For some people, the higher the salary the happier they are.

They’ll jump around from company to company, spending 6 months in one place, a year in another – all in the attempt to continually “bounce up” in salary when moving from one company to another.

Why do they do that? Because we all know that staying with one company and relying on that 2%-3% annual raise – if you get even that – is not the best way to increase your retirement nest egg.

20 Photos We Wish You Stopped Sharing With Us


By web gangsta | Published:

Every morning, the first thing most people do when they wake up is fire up their smartphone and check their social media sites.

What happened in the world while we were asleep?

For some, it’s a way to catch up on the world news. For others, it’s a way to see what your friends are doing that you missed out on. FOMO – Fear of Missing Out – is a real disease, friends, and one that should be stopped in its tracks.

How anonymous is your unlisted phone number?


By web gangsta | Published:

Quick show of hands: how many of you have an unlisted phone number?

Especially in today’s world of cellphones, the notion of a “phone book” that is printed on paper and delivered to your house is almost laughable.  People purposefully have their phone numbers listed in a phone book as part of being neighborly and accessible, but with the Do Not Call list and robocalls and other phone annoyances, more and more people are choosing to go off the grid (for personal or professional reasons).

With a cell phone, your number is pretty much already unlisted.  Nobody should be using your cell number unless you provided it to them.

And so what’s the big deal if someone had your number anyway?

Study: Facebook reduces well-being and satisfaction with life


By web gangsta | Published:

How long have you been playing Candy Crush Saga?

Better question: have you been paying money to advance, or have you achieved as much as you have via free play?

Since Web Watch has told others about the joy (and frustration) that CANDY CRUSH can bring, we’ve been hearing stories from friends about them paying $1 after $1 in order to advance through.  We have texts cursing us for sucking joy out of their lives, as our friends have become addicted to moving from level to level with this BEJEWELED clone.

And all we can say is, we couldn’t be happier.

Why?  Because at least our friends are NO LONGER OBSESSED WITH FACEBOOK.
