Is Social Networking Social Suicide?

Is Social Networking Social Suicide?

Social networking has been and still is a big part of our lives. For some of us, it's our whole lives.

But, it can ruin your life before the blink of an eye and put you to shame. I’ve always said that Facebook should come with a sign that says: “handle with care.” Every time I tell someone that, I get the same reaction: the silent smile, the nod and shaking of the head at the same time. How tragic.

Facebook was invented in 2004 and has 845 million active users with different opinions, different personalities from different locations. That’s what makes it so fun, so mysterious and makes it so easy to find friends that you didn’t even know you had.

Who needs them? Nobody knows, but what we do know is that 5000 friends on Facebook makes you cool. How tragic.

Congratulations to the winner of our Facebook Photo Caption Contest, Charlene Woods. Did you watch the Super Bowl?

This photo (provided by US Presswire) is of NY Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw running for a touchdown with :57 left on the clock.

The theory is that the New England Patriot allowed the Giants to score the touchdown, so they could get the ball back with one timeout and enough time to make a final drive. The Giants ended up winning Super Bowl XLVI 21-17.

Have a little room for us?

As the only open access shelter in Washington, DC, WHS takes in an average of 30 animals every day. The WHS team works around the clock to provide comfort to all of the animals in our care, but our space and resources are limited. Thanks to the hard work and determination of the WHS team, the New York Avenue shelter facility is undergoing major renovations in the coming months to help us provide a better environment for all of our animal residents while they are in our care. 

A construction project is currently taking place in the main holding kennel.
