Four Kansas cheerleaders are suspended for ‘KKK go Trump’ Snapchat photo

racist snapchat

Snapchat has made a name for itself as the go-to app for sharing things that you might not want the whole world to see. That way of thinking backfired on a group of University of Kansas cheerleaders after a Snapchat post that seems to show support for both the KKK and President-elect Donald Trump caught the attention of school officials.

The photo, which seems to have been shot at a dumpy college party based on the solo cups and stolen street sign wall decor, shows three male members of the University of Kansas cheer squad, each with a bold "K" on his chest, along with the words "Kkk go trump."

Here’s exactly how bad Facebook’s fake news problem really is

facebook fake news

If you've been on the internet at all within the past two weeks, you've likely seen more than your share of reports on Facebook's fake news problem, but just how bad is it really? PC World performed a rather interesting test to answer that question, and the results are jarring.

To test what kind of fake news was being circulated, and who was seeing it, two entirely new Facebook profiles were created. Both white males of the same age, each of the profiles "liked" three people: Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton on one, and Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and Newt Gingrich on the other. Then, PC World tracked all the stories that Facebook recommended for each fake profile.

Spectacle-selling Snapbot deployed at the Grand Canyon

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-11-17-12-am Not even 24 hours after we got the last Snapchat Spectacle vending machine location, there’s a new one: near the Grand Canyon in Arizona, closest to the small town of Meadview. The new spot is striking distance from Las Vegas, and should provide a beautiful road trip for anyone adventurous enough to make the drive. The Grand Canyon location follows hot on the heels of the Rose Bowl… Read More

Snapchat Spectacle vending bot lands at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena

screen-shot-2016-11-19-at-5-01-09-pm Another day, another Spectacles vending machine location. This is the fifth place the Snapbot has appeared, to sell its first-person video capturing sunglasses to droves of willing Snapchat fans (or at least people hoping to turn a tidy profit by reselling them on eBay). Today’s spot is in Pasadena, at the Rose Bowl Stadium where there’s a USC/UCLA game later today. The previous… Read More
