Best answer:

Answer by David Bierman
Oh god……………… Okay, so do you know what a :social media website” is???? if not then its a website like Facebook, twitter, instagram, etc… and the job of a person who works “social media” is to update those websites bio. NOW NOW NOW nothing fancy, this doesn’t mean the person has a job AT the website. It simply means he/she manages a profile or page with status’s etc. so in the end the person doesn’t do crap. But it is another way that businesses’s get free advertising by having people share their posts and such. The people at my job whom do this just sit on their asses all day thinking about things to post.

Celebrities hire people to manage their accounts all the time 😉

PostHeaderIcon How can I meet new people?

Question by Karen: How can I meet new people?
I’m 14 years old, and recently I went to Summer In The City, which was a YouTube gathering in which I got to meet some famous YouTubers (people who make sketches and video blogs on YouTube). Over 7,000 people attended the event, so as you can imagine, there was a hell of a lot of people. I guess I could call myself introverted; the chaotic environment made me feel a little sick, and the fact that there were so many people was scary to me.

I talked to some new people. This was new for me as I don’t usually talk to strangers unless necessary, but in this case I needed to ask questions regarding where certain events were happening. This lead on to some new friendships. The event as a whole made me come out of my shell a little bit, and made me realise that talking to people and socialising isn’t as daunting as I had convinced myself to be.

And now that I’ve benefitted from growing some balls and talking to people, I want to put myself in more social environments so I can talk and meet new people, and I was wondering where and what sort of places there are where I can socialise (“partying” is out of the question as I’m 14 and my parents wouldn’t allow that, and parties still seem a little scary).

Any suggestions as to where I could go on a regular basis to meet new people? Or do I not need to force myself to be in a “social environment” for this to be possible (i.e. would talking to strangers on the train/bus/library/etc. be enough)?

Answer by Andrew
First of all congratulations to you for having overcome your fear, and made yourself known to the general public and socialized well. If I may share, I also am in the same situation as you are, although I personally gravitated myself from a very outgoing, extroverted lifestyle to one of utter solitude and introversion. Anyway back to you. I would suggest you finding safe social networks within social media sites like FB or even twitter, where you can share life experiences with like-minded individuals. Since you’re obviously at school, you can try connecting with groups of students who share the same goals/aspirations/orientations are you, and you’ll find yourself completely out of that cocoon. Needless to state, friendships are very important and offer invaluable and innumerable opportunities to learn and areas to personally grow in. Get out there, get bolder and with time you’ll find yourself becoming the life of the party, not per se. I hope that this insight helps. Good luck discovering your social potentials.

PostHeaderIcon What is the general attitude like toward gay people in France compared to that of the United States?

Question by m-cha: What is the general attitude like toward gay people in France compared to that of the United States?
I’m just curious, because France seems to be significantly more open to sexuality and more left-wing in general than it is here. But more importantly, on a social level, how is homosexuality seen by the general public? Is it a “big deal” like it is to many people here in the US? Like here, even my friends will point out two guys walking together in the mall or on the street and say something about them being gay, like it’s a really major defining characteristic. Is it any different in France?

Best answer:

Answer by un exile
we respect gay people , I think we are more tolerant than the US citizens about this
