HYDERABAD: A run through of what is trending in cyberspace
Following the Supreme Court of America’s ruling on same-sex marriage, Jimmy Kimmel uses his show to interview kids to ask their opinion of it. While the girls are a bit more aware, and have no objections to it, the boys are less clued in, but non-judgmental.

YouTuber Em Ford, of My Pale Skin has proved the world wrong with her social experiment. Three months ago, she began posting make-up free selfies. From revolting and ugly to terrible and disgusting, Ford got all sorts of judgmental comments. When she put up a selfie with make-up, the same people left comments about her beauty. At over 3.5 millions hits, the video You Look Disgusting, drives home her message of if you love and respect yourself no one has the right to judge.
Perhaps the most touching video to hit the Internet, this short film by Zsofia Zsemberi called Gift is about adoption and how one must take this decision wisely.

Eventually, the father takes her away to abandon her in a field. And when he looks into the rear view mirror, you will be in for a real shock.
