Facebook Page “I F-ing Love Science” Is Getting A TV Series, With Craig Ferguson Producing

Elise Andrew, the one-woman team behind the Facebook page, is coming aboard as consulting producer.

Today In Shocking: Study Finds That People Who “Like” A Facebook Cause Rarely Donate Money To It

A University of California, San Diego study on online activism has found that people taking half a second to register their disapproval of some atrocity or other on Facebook doesn’t mean they’re actually interested in doing something to stop said atrocity. Wow. Never saw that one coming.

Things We Saw Today: Facebook-Flavored Ice Cream

You won’t be able to partake in this social network-themed treat unless you’re on Croatia’s Murter Island, where the not-sanctioned-by-Facebook confection can be found exclusively in brothers Admir and Ibi Adili‘s ice cream shop. It’s pretty much just plain ice cream with a blue syrup that tastes like “chewing gum and candy” drizzled on top. So it’s geared towards kids and looks neat at first but ultimately doesn’t have much to it. Fitting. (That’s Nerdalicious)

Facebook Introduces “Social Butterfly Blue” Nail Polish. Thank You?

It’s not a bad color, but the fact that Facebook has labelled this “Social Butterfly Blue” and sells it in their Menlo Park, California campus store (there’s a Facebook campus store?) kind of ruins it for me. But hey. Paint your nails (official) Facebook blue. Vow to speak only Pig Latin for the rest of your days. Take up naked golf. I can’t count the number of times I’ve eaten cold cuts and cheddar cheese for dinner. I can’t judge.
