  5. Apple, Disney, Facebook, Twitter, & Hundreds More Urge the Supreme Court to Uphold Marriage Equality

    Today in good news.

    The Supreme Court of the United States will soon hear a case on whether or not state-by-state anti-marriage equality laws are constitutional, which is likely to clear the way for nationwide legal acceptance that we should all be able to marry the person we choose.

    ABOUT TIME.

    Normally I'd be all, "Aw, that's cute, look at this police department actually doing something fun and engaging with social media" But at the time of writing it is currently a higher temperature in McMurdo, Antartica than it is in New York City. So I am unironically with you, Harlan City Police Department. Incarceration is too good for this despicable traitor. Someone fetch Ilyn Payne!

You could tell him that's the stupidest thing you've ever heard, but it'll make family reunions awkward. Now, Facebook will do it for you. Score one for not having to talk to other humans

  15. Facebook Is Sorry That “Year in Review” Reminded You How Crappy 2014 Was

    Unless it was great, in which case they're not sorry at all.

    Let's all just be honest: 2014 was a crappy year. I mean, for me personally, it was actually great, but it was pretty terrible in general.

  19. The Facebook “Gamer” Report Button Is Real, But It’s Not What You Think

    Unless you think it's about fake Farmville accounts. Then you nailed it.

    Well, technically it's real, but it's not some kind of dystopian crackdown on people who play video games participating in society. Images floating around of an option to report accounts for being "gamers" haven't been doctored, but don't take them out of context.
