Social Sochi, an all-American selfie and a LinkedIn connection fail: The digital week in review

CINCINNATI - What's more American that seeing the U.S. rack up the medals in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics? Try taking a selfie with a bald eagle. It's all in this week's digital review!

Social Sochi. The Winter Olympics wrapped up Saturday, Feb. 22; so Mashable rounded up the top social media moments at the Olympics. Which athletes got all the buzz? Which events could you not stop Tweeting about? Check out the social Olympics recap here .

Selfies for America. What’s more American than a bald eagle? Carefully weaving in the selfie phenomenon with a bald eagle. That’s why this girl is being called the “most patriotic American of the year,” only half-jokingly. Because, America.

Facebook ends email. Did you know you have a Facebook email account? Or at least, used to? The social media giant announced on Feb. 24 it were nixing its email service due to low numbers. That means if any one of Facebook’s 1.3 billion users wants to email you, all messages will be routed to your personal email account.

Puppy love. These Vines of Beau napping with Theo the Dog take “puppy love” to a whole new level.

Nasty LinkedIn response goes viral. Remember, in the social/digital age your online moves are not private. Even if you’re Cleveland’s “Communicator of the Year.” You gotta read this story .

The song you never want to end. Avicii's "Wake Me Up?" Good. Rick Astley's "Never Gonna GIve You Up?" Also good. A little Chumbawumba "Tubthumping"? Thumbs up. Put them all together and what you have is a mind-bending, fist-pumping, dance-inducing, feel good song that is going to be on repeat all weekend. No really, after hearing this, you won't have a reason to listen to anything else.
