A closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. This fashion dilemma can haunt us, from fashion lovers to trend observers and everyone in between.
TechInsider‘s Caroline Moss thought she’d found the solution, hiding in plain sight on Pinterest. Instead of creating outfit inspiration boards like many Pinterest users, Moss decided to play a kind of game.

Mark Zuckerberg had strong words for Facebook employees after finding out that someone has been crossing out “Black Lives Matter” on the walls at the company’s Menlo Park, California, headquarters.
