  1. 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.

  2. Things We Saw Today: Tiny Samwell Tarly Funko Pop Is Coming!

    I just want to squeeze him!

    Look! Look at his little feet! And Peter Baelish's little goatee! And new versions of Sansa and Daenerys and Jon Snow! Everything is wonderful and nothing hurt -- except waiting for the next book and season, of course.

  3. What Do You Do When You’re A 113 Year Old Woman Looking To Facebook? Lie About Your Age, Of Course!

    You'd think after you hit the century mark ladies could stop lying about their age to get ahead. Not if you want to get on Facebook, apparently.

  4. Facebook in Early Development on Implementing Health Care Support Groups and Preventative Care Apps

    Better or worse than asking your Twitter followers for medical advice?

    Death panels? Not real. But Facebook reminding you that it's been two years since you got a basic physical? ...Maybe?

  5. Star Trek, Online Communities, And the Need for Strong Comment Moderation Policies

    Bigotry may not have a place on the Enterprise's bridge in the 23rd century, but here in the 21st it apparently has a place on the official Star Trek Facebook page, where a small number of very loud fans have decided to repeatedly share sexist, racist, and homophobic comments. Here's why it's not OK to sit back and let that happen.

  6. [Updated] Facebook Has Apologized for Unfair Treatment of Transgender Users Under Their “Real Name” Rule

    I only wish everyone would like this.

    Earlier this month, users who weren't registered under their "real" names on Facebook received flagged and suspended accounts. The problem with that is assuming that someone's "real" name is automatically synonymous with their given legal name, and transgender users, drag queens, and drag kings were suspended for using the names they had chosen for themselves. Finally, Facebook has apologized.

  7. The Twilight Series Is Coming Back… And the Reason Why Is Actually Pretty Cool

    I know. I'm shocked, too.

    When I read that the Twilight movie franchise was being resurrected with a series of five short films, my reaction was akin to a cat trying to get a hairball out of its throat. But then I read the thing that all the shorts will have in common and... readers, I didn't think I'd ever say this, but... Twilight. I am proud of you.

  8. Hoax Alert: Ello Does Not Classify #GamerGate as Hate Speech

    We're sorry.

    For the past few days, the Internet's been abuzz with invitation codes for Ello, which purports to be a considerate social media alternative that won't collect and sell your personal information (see, we italicized won't, ’cause it makes the competition look like...) Anyway, the mysteriousness of Ello's beta test has already set the stage for a lot of misinformation, including—well, this.

  9. Facebook Can Now Serve You Legal Papers, Making Previous Facebook Changes Not Look So Bad

    "You don't like the new layout? Well sue me for trying to help." -Facebook

    Facebook is at it again with changing what the News Feed displays and how, but a court ruling has outdone them this time. Among the celebrity gossip and baby pictures Facebook serves you, it can now serve you legal papers, while the official changes to the News Feed algorithm are just another effort to prioritize the things you see in your feed. Dear courts: Facebook doesn't need any extra help junking up our feed with stuff we'd rather not see, thanks.

  10. Netropolitan: The Social Networking Site For People With Lots Of Money And Ideas About Themselves

    It's like people don't realize that silver spoons taste bad! #dauphinproblems

    Sure, social media seems fun, but just ask any rich person: the Internet has a dark side. Former Minnesota Philharmonic Orchestra conductor James Touchi-Peters knows first-hand that for people who need an online space to complain about their sommelier's gout or an unruly fiefdom, the struggle is real—but Netropolitan will change all that.
