On OkCupid, Cheating Women Win

Not having as much luck as you’d like with online dating? I definitely had some issues when I went with online dating, especially OkCupid. Time’s Newsfeed reported that on OkCupid, women who are cheaters tend to get the most messages, and men who are cheaters rule amongst male users of the site.

Sex, Love and Stalking on Facebook and Twitter

Thanks to Jesus at Gizmodo, my morning highlight was the below Facebook Public Service Announcement, which includes rules about not changing one’s relationship status without letting the other person know, making appropriate posts on other people’s walls and more.
