Favorite Finds

March 27, 2015
This week was madness – and we’re not talking about basketball! From puppy cuteness overload to teenage heartbreak, this week the Internet just can’t even.
Here are my favorite finds of the week:
  • Puppy Love: If your social feed seemed extra adorable on Monday, that’s because it was #NationalPuppyDay! While celebritiesand athletesjoined in on the cause to raise awareness for pet adoption, our favorite pup pics came from @chicagoist, which featured adoptable pets from Chicago rescue organizations.
  • Auf Weider ZAYN: Pop heartthrob Zayn Malikannounced that he was leaving #OneDirection, citing his desire “to be a normal 22-year old.” Naturally, teenage fans everywhere took to Twitter, Vine, SnapChat and every other social app to collectively FREAK OUT.
  • Oh yeah, there’s a basketball tournament: As #MarchMadness heats up, here’s everything you need to know about this year’s #Sweet16, via @usatoday.
  • Facebook’s new friends: The New York Times broke the story that Facebook is holding talks with major media publishers to host news within Facebook. The plan has been touted as a way to streamline user experience, but some media observers are saying it could destroy journalistic integrity. Either way, it’s yet another reason for PR pros to stay on top of their social media game.
