  1. Lady Gaga-Dalai Lama meeting sparks fury in China

    US pop star Lady Gaga met the Dalai Lama at a conference in the US on Sunday but the meeting proved to be controversial in China. 

    The Dalai Lama is considered a controversial figure in China because he is seen as a major figurehead for Tibetan separatism.

    Users on Weibo, a popular Chinese social media site, accused Lady Gaga of "not considering" their feelings when meeting someone like the Dalai Lama. 

    Some users speculated whether she would be banned from performing in China. While others defended her choice to meet him.

    It's not the first time that Lady Gaga has had a run-in with the Chinese authorities. Her songs were placed on a blacklist in 2011.

  3. "Don't panic..."

  4. "We are Europe" - NHS staff on Brexit

    "'We are Europe!' Today we have been hard at work improving people's lives! This is what our friends from Europe do for the NHS"

    A Facebook photo posted by a NHS doctor to celebrate diversity has gone viral.

    Dr Junaid Masood's picture has been shared more than 10,000 times since it was posted on Saturday evening.

    Masood works at Homerton University Hospital in east London, UK.

    He wrote: "Let's speak out for working together and not being a divided society! Immigration has been the backbone of the NHS we all love and cherish, and it is good for our society and country!"

  5. #postrefracism - people share their experiences of racism

    Since the UK voted to leave the European Union, people have shared their experiences of racism on social media.

    People also have reported incidents of racism to police, including alleged racist graffiti and cards posted through letterboxes.

    It is unclear whether the referendum result prompted a rise in hostility or that allegations of racism are being highlighted more on social media since the result.

    The Twitter hashtag #postrefracism was trending on Sunday and has been used more than 23,000 times to date. It was started by a group of the same name, which is calling for people to share their experiences.

    Here's a selection of tweets:

    This Facebook image urging people to unite against hatred and racism, has been shared more than 15,000 times.

    "We did not all agree on June 23rd but we must all agree today. United against hate. United against racism. Please share.
