  1. What do you think is the role of a website in the era of social media?For example, recently I went to a clothes store after finding it on Facebook. On their Facebook page, there was a button to contact by WhatsApp, so I clicked it to ask for a question, which was instantly answered. The store seemed very popular without having a website. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! Take care. 🙂    – JOEY  
  2. How do I tell my team lead I can’t complete something?  case and point:  I was trying to implement some new functionality and i said it would take me about 7 days of work. 4 weeks later..  I just couldn’t quite get it to work. I finally sucked it up and told my boss the situation and though he wasn’t mad, he was disappointed.  -Julie R.
