Those of you that know me, know I’m a big fan of WordPress. All of my personal sites run on WordPress, both the Greece Historical Society and Friends of the Aurora Public Library sites which I manage run on WordPress, and Nebraska Libraries on the Web which I’m in charge of runs on WordPress. Ok, I live and breathe WordPress. So, if you do too, you probably know that you can easily embed external content from sites like YouTube and Flickr just by pasting the item’s URL on its own line. But did you know that you can also do this with sites like Instagram, Twitter, SlideShare and TED? No? Well now you do. And, if you’re interested in a complete list you can find it on the Embeds page in the WordPress Codex.
Asked whether they were friends with their parents on Facebook, several of the teens on stage at Business Insider’s Ignition 2013 conference groaned loudly.
Stephanie Retblatt of Smarty Pants interviewed nine New York City teenagers, ages ranging from 14 to 17, about their digital lives and habits.
“I hate Facebook. It’s just so boring,” one teenage girl said, before declaring her sworn allegiance to Instagram.
“I used to scroll down Facebook and read every single status,” another added. “Now I just love Vine.”
One young woman even confessed that her mother had more than double the amount of Facebook friends that she did.
