Chosen for its strong connection with femininity, pink is the universal color associated with breast cancer awareness. You’ve probably already started to see lots of pink during the past week as businesses are gearing up for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
According to breastcancer.org, one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime, so it is no surprise that the nation as a whole has rallied around this campaign in recent years—25 to be exact. This is a disease that has the potential to affect every American in some way, whether it is personally or knowing someone who is battling the disease. Read More

After announcing a series of major changes aimed at making its user experience more emotional, you would think that Facebook would be celebrating its domination of the social media universe.
Not so fast.
Google+, the new social network that also made big news last week by officially opening its doors to the public, experienced what some are calling unprecedented growth in just a few days’ time.
