Facebook

  1. New Social Sites Share the Profits From All the Pet and Baby Pictures Things You Post

    "My uncle made $300 a day working from home! Learn-" Mark as spam.

    Every time you write a post complaining about how awful Facebook is, remember that Facebook is lining its pockets with the money your whining is making it. If new social networks have anything to say about it, and if they can overcome Facebook's staggering ubiquity, you may soon have a way to make sure you're the one profiting off that viral video of you getting kicked in the pants or whatever.

  2. In Continuing Quest to Stay Relevant, Facebook Adds “Buy” and “Save” Buttons

    Add a "cute puppy gif" button and maybe I'd start using Facebook again.

    Facebook is testing some features that it knows will actually get you to start using your account again: "buy" and "save for later" butto—ZZZZZZZZ.

  3. Dorkly Makes Fun Of New-Thor Opposers With The Help of Snortblat Old-Thor

    We're going to make this happen, gang.

    We all know that Thor is better than those jerks complaining about a new female wielder of Mjolnir (then again, he did become unworthy of the hammer somehow... maybe Internet trolling?), but this series of imagined Facebook statuses really brings home how stupid the whole argument is. Check out the rest over at Dorkly.

  5. The Academic Journal That Published The Facebook Experiment Is Having Second Thoughts

    "Did we do that?"

    So remember that psychology experiment Facebook did recently, and the resulting academic paper they wrote and submitted to a reputable scientific journal? And remember how they didn't actually tell anybody they were doing it and how that sort of made some people mad and possibly even litigious? The scientific journal noticed all of that uproar and maaaaybe they're not as into the paper as they thought, you guys.

  6. We’re Not Surprised: The Facebook Experiment Is Probably Illegal

    Dislike.

    Over the weekend it was revealed that Facebook engaged in "psychological experiments" on hundreds of thousands of its users. Not everyone is as outraged by the news, but it seems pretty clear that those people are in the minority and that most of us would kiiiinda like to be asked first. Well, joke's on Facebook, because despite their weasel-y excuses, they might have still broken the law anyway.

  7. Facebook Secretly Used 689,003 People for a Psychological Experiment [Updated]

    ...but I think I might be fine with it.

    Facebook has been caught in a scandal after it was discovered that in 2012 they turned 689,003 users into unknowing participants in a psychological experiment. It's sneaky, arguably unethical, but surprisingly I think I'm actually on Facebook's side on this one.

  8. Facebook Releases Diversity Report, is Hella White and Male Just Like Everywhere Else

    Okay, but how many of their employees are faceless profile picture defaults?

    Lately a lot of tech companies have been released reports detailing the race, ethnicity, and gender make-up of their tech, employees. Google put out theirs first in late May, quickly followed by Yahoo and LinkedIn. Yesterday Facebook followed suit with a diversity report that tracks the demographics of all their tech, non-tech, and "senior-level" workers. The results? Pretty much what you'd expect from your standard tech company at this point.

  9. Dear European Media: Facebook Europe’s VP Really Doesn’t Like How You’ve Been Covering Female Execs

    Because ignoring their friend request wasn't cutting it.

    Nicola Mendelsohn is the Vice President of Facebook in Europe, and at a speaking engagement in London the other day, she had some choice words for members of the European press concerning how they engage with and report on women in business. Mostly words like "hey, dummies, stop treating us differently then the business dudes." But we're paraphrasing.

  10. Stop Inviting Pope Francis to Facebook, He’s Never Going to Join

    Well, someone needs to play Words With Friends with me.

    If Pope Francis believes the Internet is a "gift from God," then Facebook is humanity's inevitable corruption of that gift. His Holiness said recently that he will not not be joining Facebook, because, you know, it's terrible—and even a special visit from the network's representatives couldn't sway him.
