'I will be the change': Man's post on turning in assault rifle after Parkland shooting goes viral

Politics
Ben Dickmann, a conservative white man in Florida who owns guns, is sick of simply offering thoughts and prayers after every American mass shooting. In a very lengthy Facebook post yesterday, Dickmann shared he knows more needs to be done—especially by gun-owning, conservative white men like him (emphasis mine): I am standing up and saying to anyone that will listen…We need better, more comprehensive gun control, ownership, and training requirements in this county. We need to start this now. We needed to start this 20-30 years ago in all reality.

These (former) exes are having an oh-so-happy Valentine’s Day. Weeks after announcing that she’s back with estranged husband Andrew Ferguson, Elle King shared an emotional Instagram post on what is their second wedding anniversary — and revealed another photo from their special day. “Two years ago, just after midnight, I married my forever valentine,” she captioned the sweet image. “I remember saying to you ‘I don’t want to spend another day not being your wife.’ We snuck out of that hollywood party (I stole a bouquet) and got married.” “I think that life is a never ending maze full of choices, chances, consequences, luck love lust failures triumphs, the best and the worst of times,” King, 28, continued in the post. “I wouldn’t want to spend my life fighting and making up with anyone othe

Kim Kardashian West has no shortage of nearly naked selfies to share on social media. The 37-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who welcomed her third child, daughter Chicago West, on Jan. 15 via surrogate, kicked off her Tuesday morning with a sexy bikini mirror selfie which she says she “forgot to post” last night. In the revealing snap, Kardashian West showed off her hard-earned abs (she works out with trainer Melissa Alcantara six days a week) in a black string bikini top and G-string bottoms paired with a thick diamond choker necklace, despite revealing she didn’t know if she would ever wear jewelry again after her Paris robbery in 2016. The selfie appears to be a throwback photo taken while the star was doing a photo shoot in this look, which she shared previously on her

Putting your trust as a marketer or brand in 3rd-party social media tools to manage all of your posts can be a bit scary. You might be wondering: Are my posts getting optimal reach and engagement?
