The desire for ever more extreme selfies has so far resulted in 259 deaths, says a new report by the US National Library of Medicine …
A global study collated worldwide reports of selfie deaths between 2011 and 2017, reports BBC News.
Drowning, transport accidents and falling were found to be the most common cause of death.
But death by animals, electrocution, fire and firearms also appeared frequently in reports from around the world.
Most of the fatal extreme selfies occurred on the tops of mountains, tall buildings and in lakes, says the report.
Ads will likely arrive on Instagram within the next year, as Facebook seeks to develop sources of revenue for the digital property it purchased in April 2012. But at this point it is anyone’s guess how the photo-sharing service’s users will react when ads do start showing up.
Instagram, created in 2010, has long been a playground for hip young people and the brands that market to them. So far, it has managed to retain its image despite a $1 billion sale to Facebook and incredible user growth, going from about 30 million users at the time of acquisition to more than 150 million today. In a blog post Sunday, Instagram said that it had added 50 million monthly users in the past six months alone.
In the wake of its latest major privacy breach, Facebook says it has so far found no evidence that the attackers accessed any third-party apps using Facebook Login.
Upon detecting the breach, last week — which exposed at least 50 million user accounts — Facebook analyzed its logs for all third-party apps installed or logged in during the attack.
The tech titan also claims to have fixed the vulnerability, and reset the access tokens for a total of 90 million accounts — 50 million that had access tokens stolen, and 40 million that were subject to a “View As” look-up in the last year.
“Resetting the access tokens protected the security of people’s accounts,” Guy Rosen, vice president, product management, Facebook, notes in a new blog post.
Reebok is betting that all the cool kids are craving the comfort of flannels, crop tops and the Clinton presidency, launching a new ‘90s-themed ad campaign for the Aztrec, one of its greatest hits.
The campaign comes at a tough time for Reebok. While parent Adidas is going strong and gaining market share, in part due to its successful “Create the Answers” campaign, Reebok’s sales are limping. In its most recent quarterly results, it reported double-digit growth for the Adidas brand, but a 3% drop in Reebok revenues. Gains in its Classics, it said, did not offset decreases in the training and running categories.
