mark zuckerberg hides his friend list

What's the matter, Mark? You don't like irony of being the most popular person on Facebook's competition?

After joining Google+ Project, Mark Zuckerberg quickly gained massive popularity with over 100,000 followers!

Guess he felt that he was getting TOO popular, because he decided to hide his friend list.

Come on, Mark, show us that friend list again! Facebook has 750 million members now, right? Who cares if people see that there are now hundreds of thousands of users on Google+!

Ah well!

Are U on Google+ yet?

facebook now has 750 million members

Looks like you're gonna have your work cut out for you, Google+ Project

Last month, nearly 6 million people in the U.S. deleted their Facebook accounts, and there was SOME question as to whether or not the social networking site could be on its way out.

Now, it appears that Facebook is actually doing quite well, because they released some numbers yesterday, and they've passed 750 million members worldwide. Wowsa!

Here's what Mark Zuckerberg had to say about it during a press conference on Wednesday:

Wow.

Yesterday during 2-3 p.m. est, when the Casey Anthony verdict was announced, over 1 million users visited CNN.com/live to witness the results of the trial. This is 30 times higher than the previous 4 week average for that time period! Wow again.

During the same period of time, CNN.com had approximately 12 million page views, which is 4 times higher than the previous 4 week average. Wow a third time.

Guess this is what happens when the verdict for a major trial is announced in the afternoon on a work day.

Where did U go to learn the verdict of the Casey Anthony murder trial?

Facebook De-Friended By Nearly 6 Million People In U.S. Last Month!

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness BlitzFacebook

facebook loses nearly 6 million us users

Uh oh.

Last month, nearly 6 million people in the U.S. deleted their Facebook accounts, bringing the total number of active users in the United States from 155.2 million to 149.4 million.

Canada also lost 1.52 million users, and the U.K., Norway, and Russia lost over 100,000 users each.

Here's what tracking service Inside Facebook's Eric Eldon had to say about the drop:

"By the time Facebook reaches around 50 percent of the total population in a given country (plus or minus, depending on Internet access rates in that country), growth generally slows to a halt. So far, Facebook has been able to make up stalls and losses with big gains in heavily populated developing countries like Mexico, Brazil, India and Indonesia."

And here's what CEO of Law360.com Magnus Hoglund had to say about it:

"From my experience, I get the sense that being on Facebook is not cool anymore. The early adopters and trend-setters are moving away. [But] these are also exactly the type of people brand advertisers want to reach; if they are leaving, it doesn't look good for Facebook."

What do U think? Are these drops normal? Or is Facebook on its way out?

Gross! Jewelers Put Lindsay's Surveillance Footage On-line, Charge Users To Watch It!

jewelers-put-lindsay-surveillance-footage-on-website

This is actually so appalling that we can't even believe it's real.

The jewelry store involved in Lindsay Lohan's current court drama has already sold the surveillance footage to the press and attempted to get themselves a book and movie deal over the legal disaster, and now, they've created a website on which users can watch the video of the formerly hard-pAArtying actress allegedly stealing the $2500 necklace - but for a price, of course!

The website, necklacevideo.com, will reportedly post "new content every day" so they can ensure that viewers "come back tomorrow for more" - and have to pay the $2.99 log-in fee again!

According to a rep from Kamofie & Company:

“We will help you make-up your mind about what really happened. NecklaceVideo.com is disclosing everything. The entire video surveillance footage, the real nature of the necklace, the supposed dialogue between Lindsay and the salesgirl.”

Gross. Seriously, just gross.

Firstly, the website sounds like it should be the host to some bizarre eastern european fetish porn, not a surveillance video of Lindsay trying on jewelry for 42 minutes. Secondly, WHO THE HELL IS GOING TO PAY THAT just to see, again, surveillance video of Lindsay trying on jewelry for 42 minutes? If they're going to trial because the footage doesn't prove anything, what makes it worth watching?

Lastly, this is yet another BIZARRE and exploitive move from this establishment, which once again reinforces for us that this whole court case is just a way for them to ca$h in on Lindsay's attention from the media and use her as a means to gain some notoriety for their business.

Ugh. This all just needs to be OVER.

What do U think? Did Lindsay do it?

Facebook IS Sharing Your Home Address And Phone Number With App Developers

Filed under: Tech TalkFacebook

Phonebook facebook

We're not sure how we feel about this, but Facebook is going ahead with their quest to "make the world more open and connected" by giving out users personal contact information such as home addresses and phone numbers to third-party developers and websites.

Facebook first announced this plan in January, but suspended any further action after public outcry from users and Congressmen, but whether you like it or not, the social network may be making you more social than you want to be.

Although the info is only intended to be shared with application developers, experts still fear it may be easier for scammers to take advantage of users who could give out their personal contact information after a few wrong clicks.

Others like Mary Hodder, chairman of the Personal Data Ecosystem Consortium, sees this as Facebook's willingness to change the rules of the game. She points out:

"People never thought when they were posting this data [such as their phone numbers] that it would be accessible to anyone but friends. There's a real mismatch of expectations around that. Even if Facebook comes back with new protections, they're still saying, 'Hey, get over it, your data is public.' I feel badly for users that Facebook's approach is 'You give us anything and it's all fair game.'"

We don't think hope there is a reason to get TOO worried because the information sharing is not automatic and a developer has to request permission to access any information from a user. A spokesperson for the website said:

"You need to explicitly choose to share your data before any app or website can access it and no private information is shared without your permission."

The best way to avoid this information being shared however, might be to completely remove it from your profile.

Thoughts???
