This post is part of Mashable's Spring Cleaning Week. Just a little something to distract you from the eternal dread of constantly wiping all those fingerprints off your screen.  If we all sought to live our lives like the very best versions of ourselves, we'd treat our social media accounts like we do our closets.  We'd sift through our news feeds like we do old clothes, cutting ties with people we no longer feel connected to.  The fact that there are (usually) real humans behind these...

With 2 billion users, Facebook's content policies have changed a lot over the years. But one aspect that's been the same is that users have very little, if any, say about what happens after they click the "report" button — until now. Facebook just announced plans to widen its appeals process, which, for the first time, will allow Facebook users to formally request that the social network revisit a decision it's made about a particular piece of content.  The company is also publishing an...

Sony has released the first trailer for Venom, starring Tom Hardy as an antihero who gets tangled up with a mysterious and powerful symbiote.  If the character sounds kind of familiar, you may recall that he's frequently associated with Spider-Man – Topher Grace played a version of him in 2007's Spider-Man 3.  But this Venom exists separately from Spider-Man.

Rocky worlds larger than Earth are commonplace in the galaxy, and a few of them may even be habitable. Which poses an interesting question. How difficult would it be for aliens living on these super-Earths to launch rockets into space, given the tremendous gravity?

Late last year Australian sex toy maker Geeky Sex Toys gave us serious pause. At the time it was producing sex toys based off Star Wars, including a seriously optimistic rendition of Yoda's verdant dong, and there was no clear reason why the company wasn't saddled with so many cease and desists from Disney as to leave a dildo-shaped crater in the Australian landscape. Now it's getting naughty with Disney's stable of Marvel superheroes, too. More »

Thomas Jefferson once said, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." If you want to plant a sapling of liberty, I suppose the best thing to water it with is with blood, too. It's a good thing Westworld is currently soaked in it. More »

How we feel about our bodies - and how we treat them - is influenced by many different factors, but one of the biggest is how we were raised. As a longtime fat activist, I have heard tons of stories about well-meaning parents who'd talk about food choices in terms of weight loss rather than nutrition, or exercise as a moral imperative rather than a fun way to spend time. And their children grew up to develop harmful attitudes and behaviours because of it. More »

It's no secret that being a woman in tech comes with its discriminatory disadvantages, but a new report from the Human Rights Watch reveals that in China, recruiting tactics are troublingly sexist.

The Trump voter is often portrayed in media and pop culture as a working-class white person, down on their luck and desperate for change. These voters were — and remain — willing to look past Trump's erratic and unorthodox behavior and "politically incorrect" commentary if his presidency brings better jobs.
