Hunter's Mid Week Media Round-Up

Here's your weekly fix of media  and digital stories making the headlines .   Plus Size debate continues... One of our favourite funny girls  Amy Schumer has criticised US Glamour Magazine for including her in it's ‘Plus Size’ Issue. Amy said "I think there's nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8," she wrote on Instagram. " Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous." We tend to agree, in an age where designers are now making "gender fluid" collections it seems out dated and unnecessary to label and differentiate women because of their size. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/health/amy-schumer-hits-out-at-glamour-magazine-for-featuring-her-in-pl/Online privacy Privacy seems to be at the forefront of social media networks and messaging services changes at the moment.   The latest development being WhatsApp introducing end to end encryption for their 1 Billion users!!
