Digital Etiquette (& Why We Need It); & Male Vs Female Vanity
It’s a riot of celebrity news this week: Madonna, J-Lo and Brad n Leo’s sarnie dates. Whole gang’s here. Plus: Mark Ronson’s sapiosexuality, Fleabag’s Emmy sweep, Thomas Cook’s crash and Justin Trudeau’s blackface scandal.
Also this week: we discuss male vs female vanity (klaxon: men look in the mirror more than women) and Debrett’s etiquette guide for Facebook messenger. What does this (slightly hilarious) meeting of minds tell us about how desperately we need digital etiquette? We discuss online communication in the age of the constant feedback loop.
