The Twitter troll that was harassing British diver Tom Daley was arrested as Olympic social media woes continue. Sportsmanship, especially relating to social media appears to be a thing of the past, particularly in relation to the London 2012 Games.
Earlier today British diver Tom Daley called out a twitter hater @Riley_69 with the hashtag #GetRiley_69banned and the IOC flexed their muscles as authorities arrested the inappropriate sports fan. It’s a relief to know there is still some level of accountability for the fans in the actual arena and also in the Twitter arena.

There’s a new social networking site on the horizon. Lady Gaga is planning to launch her very own social network. The site called “Little Monsters” aims to connect like-minded people and give more back to her loyal fans. Gaga is a role model and sends a clear message that doing your own thing and being yourself is still cool. The rockstar of gargantuan proportion is already known for her constant fan interaction and her site will offer yet another way for her to stay in touch with her fans, and more importantly, a way for them to stay connected with each other. According to Gaga Law, you’re welcome in her world and it doesn’t matter what country you are from. Little Monsters is slated for debut later this year.

Rumors indicate that besidse the successful “LIKE” button, Facebook is about to introduce a new button, the “WANT.” It is obvious Facebook’s button has totally changed online interactions all over the world. The new “WANT” button is being based on a similar concept, however it is designed for companies with products or services… especially online stores. You can insert the “WANT” button beside items, ie. sports cars, vacations, fashion items, and yes even your fav supermodel - if that’s your social style. We think the Zuckerberg juggernaut should come out with a “NEED” button next.

Study of the Day: Why Crowded Coffee Shops Actually Help Creative Thinking

The next time you’re stumped on a creative challenge, head to a bustling coffee shop, not the library. As the researchers write in their paper, “[I]nstead of burying oneself in a quiet room trying to figure out a solution, walking out of one’s comfort zone and getting into a relatively noisy environment may trigger the brain to think abstractly, and thus generate creative ideas.”
