I feel as though both Twitter and Facebook both have great things to offer the user, but personally I prefer Facebook. I enjoy Facebook simply because there is not a character limit. Both sites have fantastic news articles, but I don’t like having a limit on my thoughts. With that being said I do feel like Twitter is a less serious social media forum because people tend to share more personal information on Facebook.
Facebook users tend to add only the people that they know and Twitter allows you to connect with people from all over the world. I also think that contacting people using Facebook is much easier than connecting with someone on Twitter. Maybe I feel this way because I’ve had my Facebook page since 2007, and just recently started using Twitter. I have grown an appreciation for all social media but if I had to choose one outlet I would absolutely choose Facebook. #J360
When I find my articles I like to search news on Twitter, and I yet again found an article that blew my mind. The article was titled Ancient Skeletons Found Holding Hands In England. This title immediately caught my attention. I went on to read that “archaeologists with the University of Leicester uncovered remains of two skeletons holding hands believed to have been resting that way for at least 700 years”. Due to the radiocarbon in the bones, scientists could date the skeletons all the way back to the 14th century. What a love story! The notebook has nothing on this couple buried in the rubble under the “lost chapel of St. Morell,” which overlooks the small village of Hallaton in Leicestershire, England. I would like to believe that their love was so strong that even in death they wanted to be together, which is unbelievable. Eleven skeletons have been found, in total, so far, but personally nothing is as amazing as the skeletons arm locked for 700 hundred years. Archaeologists believe that this was a special burial ground for Pilgrims, which is why it was no surprise why there were skeletons in the ground. The cause of death is still unknown, some believe that the cause of death could have been blunt trauma, but others say the way some of the skeletons were found could have meant they had a disease. That would be my guess as to why there are so many people buried so close together. Back in that time if you had a disease you were completely isolated and buried with other victims, because there was no medicine. There are so many questions that I would like to see answered, like how did the couple end up there together? With modern technology I am sure that we will soon have all of the answers to this mystery, but what an archaeological find! Could this be the next big part of history? Could this be the answers to mysteries in the past? This is so interesting to me, and I cannot wait until more is released to the news about this story. I will make sure to keep everyone updated!
Here is a link to the article. You guys should check it out because the pictures are absolutely amazing!

I really want to get a job working with a radio station by a beach somewhere. I want to be within driving distance of the ocean as soon as possible.
So I will have no internet for the next couple of days, which is going to make updating my social media sites extremely difficult. I’m trying to do the best I can but, my phone is not capable of accessing the internet, so I will be spending extra time at IUPUI. I never realized how important something as small as the internet can be to a person (especially a college student).
