The Feed: Not all Googlers Created Equally

 

Google Inequality: Turns out not everyone gets to enjoy all of the enviable Google employee perks. This class of employees wears yellow badges, and they are in charge of data-entry labor. They work in 3.14159~ factory (sounds grim), away from the rest of the white badges (full-time employees), red badges (contractors) and green badges (interns). Former Google contractor Andrew Norman Wilson noticed this Google lower class and decided to document their comings and goings from 3.14159~ factory.

Social Media FOMO: See, social media just makes you feel bad. Everyone gets caught in this Catch-22 with social media: they need to update their pictures and statuses to present themselves in a certain way, yet they spend so much time online it affects their real realtionships. The moral of the story? Don’t get sucked into the social media black hole! Don’t let it run your life (if you still have one).  GigaOm
