After four years of exceedingly quiet contemplation, with the exception of 'Atlas' for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack, Coldplay has re-emerged with the announcement of their sixth album, Ghost Stories. The announcement for the album's May 19th release date came a week after the unveiling of 'Midnight,' the first single from the album and the first taste of the brooding, introspective sound Coldplay has been crafting.
The best thing about dance music is that it is universal. Anywhere in the world at any point in time, dance music is there as the soundtrack to moments that will last forever, and no one knows this better than David Guetta. Having been a part of the electronic music community since he started DJing in his teens, David Guetta has played a huge role in helping make and shape dance music history. Having just reached a personal milestone of 50 million likes on Facebook, David Guetta has given fans a behind the scenes look at one of the most remarkable moments in dance music history, his performance underneath the Masada mountain in Israel, 424 meters under the sea.
Getting low is an art form, one that Dillon Francis and DJ Snake have absolutely mastered. A legend in the realm of moombaton, Dillon Francis knows exactly what it takes to get your body moving, and DJ Snake is no stranger to banging out beats that'll have you winding your waist like a snake either. Combining DJ Snake's 'Turn Down For What' attitude with the 'Masta Blasta' himself could only lead to one thing, and that is to 'Get Low.'

Facebook is notorious for updating its website but now the company has released Paper, a portable app that extends beyond the computer screen. Paper lets you choose the sections you want to read from like a digital newspaper. You can scroll through a personalized news feed on stories ranging from friends, big publishers, content creators and public figures. The app even allows you to share content with a visual preview of how your post will look to others.
When team leaders announced the release of Paper over a week ago (as part of the “Creative Labs” initiative), many tech critics wondered if the shift from the social website to the standalone app would occur in the general public. Facebook has reached over 1 billion active users and at its 10th anniversary, many skeptics/consumers say the site is no longer relevant or cool. However, Facebook went ahead with Paper in order to introduce aggressive change and develop ideas they hoped would work.

Facebook and Twitter have dominated the social media stratosphere, but with the future upon us, and constant changes in social trends, the online population is always on the hunt for a new form of social interaction. Here are 5 sites that you may not know about, and that you should consider if you are feeling you need a change from the “same old-same old" in the social networking world.
Created by the co-founder of Twitter, this site is an invite-only social media platform that allows only exclusive users to share more intuitive and original ideas. All Medium accounts seem to have some sort of link to professional publication, whether it be news, journalism, or research. In that regard, not everyone is eligible to post, weeding out the arbitrary and annoying content that appears on other sites. Unlike Twitter or Facebook status updates, Medium links its “updates” to 500-1000 word articles written by the user. Only the best and brightest seem to be able to post on Medium, and it is worth creating a Twitter account in hopes of being considered as a contributor. Given that it is a more specialized and aesthetically pleasing extension of Twitter, Medium holds promise as the new and coveted form of social communication for the future.
