We've seen quite a few developments in the digital and social world this week, so let's dive in and discuss!

How Are You Feeling? Tell Facebook About It
Feeling sad? Lazy? Excited?

Facebook recognized that sometimes words just don't cut it. Sometimes, you just need an emoji.

Select profiles got to try out Facebook's new emoji feature this week, adding a little pizzazz to their status updates.

Instead of just telling people you're watching a movie, you can show them – with a clapper board.

Can't stop reading "The Hunger Games"? Show people with a book emoji.

This new feature will also allow you to link to a brand page so all of your friends can like it, too. Simply put, it's a way for you to share your feelings and activities on a whole new level. Look for the new emojis to head your way very soon!

Cincinnati Bell gets Ultra-Savvy
There are some Cincinnati Bell customers who may think the company is, well, slightly behind the times when it comes to the latest and greatest smartphones.

Those doubters may be holding their tongues, though – Cincinnati Bell announced this week that it'll be the first U.S. carrier to offer the brand-new Sony smartphone . The Sony Xperia ZL will cost around $250 with a mail-in rebate and two-year Cincinnati Bell contract.

Welcome To Twitter, President Clinton!
…Sort of.

Noticing that the former Commander-in-Chief was absent from the Twitterverse, Stephen Colbert took charge and created a Twitter account for Bill Clinton.

Unfortunately, President Clinton was already taken, but @PrezBillyJeff wasn't. So Colbert pounced. The new account has already racked up over 144,000 followers – and it's guaranteed to be hilarious with Mr. Colbert at the helm.

Google Art Project Comes To The Cincinnati Art Museum
