    Ladies and gentlemen, we have officially crossed the line in the "what constitutes oversharing in the social media world" debate. Have you heard about the latest trend taking Instagram by storm? The #AfterSex selfie.

    As if the selfie culture weren't pervasive enough, now we're getting inundated with pictures of couples in post-coital bliss, and just to make sure that we're aware of what activity the naked people in bed were just engaged in, they're tagged with #AfterSex.

    Because all the things must now be documented on social media (dinner never happened if it wasn't Instagrammed), the latest trend to hit the wedding scene is hiring a social media wedding concierge.

    The W Hotel in New York City is currently promoting the new service, which will run you $3,000 to "borrow" one of W's social media experts for your big day. In a promotional email to the Huffington Post, they claim, "From live tweets and #hashtags to Vine videos and Instagram filters, W's Social Media Wedding Concierge will document the 'I Dos' and encourage guests to utilize a dedicated wedding hashtag for every one of their posts."

    It's hard to imagine there was a time when you could break up with someone or be broken up with and then never, ever have to see his horrible, beautiful, heartbreaking face again. Ah, what a comfort it must have been to be able to cry for a day, talk it out with friends, and then know you could move on. There was no high-tech way of keeping tabs on that person, and even if you heard through the grapevine that he had a new girlfriend or wife, you could make it through life without viewing 100 photos of her and knowing hair that shiny actually exists outside of a shampoo commercial.

    Boy, are those days gone. It's now pretty much possible to locate and stalk every boyfriend you've had since kindergarten. Not that you plan on doing this, of course, but here are 7 websites that have made it super easy for "ex-boyfriend stalking" to become an international sport and for no one to ever fully get over and past the ... well, the past.

    Even after you've gotten into the habit, motivating yourself to get up and go to the gym or go for a run can be really hard. Thankfully, there are ways to get yourself revved up ... Like checking out hotties on your morning route! Well, at least that's what 24-year-old Kelly Roberts from Brooklyn, NY found made her run a lot easier when she did the New York City half marathon this past weekend! Ha!

    Roberts took Instagram selfies of herself with an unsuspecting, attractive guy every mile.

    No matter how modest or camera-shy you may be, there's no escaping the selfie. From the dictionary to Halloween costumes and even a horrible song being played on Top 40 radio, it's everywhere. And it's much more evil than we initially thought. Apparently, it's the reason so many more people under 30 years old are hitting up their local plastic surgeon's office to request 10 percent more nose jobs, 7 percent more hair transplants, and a 6 percent more eyelid surgery, according to a survey conducted by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

    In fact, the survey found one out of three plastic surgeons say they've seen an increase in requests for procedures like these related to patients being "more self-aware of looks with social media." Like, #OMG!

    The best revenge is feeling your best and leading a healthy and happy life. Selena Gomez proved that last night when she showed up at an Oscars after-party looking absolutely breathtaking in a floor-length Emilio Pucci gold gown and side-parted sleek hairstyle. And her many fans weren't the only ones noticing her angelic appearance. Ex -- or is he? -- Justin Bieber was so besotted with Selena that he posted her photo on his Instagram with the caption: "Most elegant princess in the world." So. What does this mean, exactly?

    Every day around lunchtime, I am slapped in the face with a huge pang of food envy. While my family does get delicious dinners, my midday meals pretty much suck. I’m a decent cook, and my daughter even claims that I’m the best chef in the whole wide world, but during my busy workday, lunch becomes a necessity rather than a meal to savor. This is when the food jealousy creeps in.

    While scanning through my friends' Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook feeds, I am left salivating after seeing photos of the amazing, beautiful food they eat for lunch. I should add that I have many a food blogger in my inner circle, so they're pros at making incredible meals and sharing the results online. So there I am. Staring at my own, lame lunch --which 9 times out of 10 is quinoa, hummus, lettuce, and egg. Yes, it may be healthy, but it ain’t pretty. And it's almost always the same.

    Thank heaven for the hysterically funny new "Sad Food" trend!

    I came across a story that forces me to ask, "What the HELL is wrong with teenagers?" It makes me sound ancient, I know. But you will be floored too once you hear the details. Apparently there is a new, sick trend among them. Teens are "like totally" into taking selfies with homeless people. Yea. You read that right. It's the coolest thing since tweeting half-naked pics of yourself.

    I've spent many of my kids' growing-up years working online, with the last few positively engrossed in social media, even more than the typical parent.

    And while I've posted a few potentially mortifying photos of my children in the past, for the most part, I'm extremely careful about what pictures of my kids I put online -- whether it's on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or another site.

    If only other parents would do the same. Here's why it bothers me so much.

    Instagram is by far my favorite picture-sharing social media site. The filters make your pics look awesome, it’s easy to scroll through, and you can upload to both Twitter and Facebook at once if you so choose to.

    It’s also sort of become selfie-centric in a lot of ways, since the best way to prove you were somewhere exciting, or did something important, or even just put makeup on is to document it. But there are some selfies that just don’t belong on Instagram. In fact, you shouldn’t even take them, let alone post them.
