This is seriously genius. It can just show you that people don't realize this stuff. I'm patiently waiting for the site that filters on "got totally drunk last night and made a mistake. These huge breasts constantly get me into trouble." (more…)

Inside the kinda secret world of Facebook Community Council

Inside the kinda secret world of Facebook Community Council

I have newfound respect for online moderators who slog through potentially problematic user content all day. They get a real glimpse into the downside of humanity. Facebook developers recently initiated me into Facebook Community Council, a secret shadow organization of vigilantes who destroy the content of ne'er-do-wells and miscreants. Our [...]

Prisoner excapes prison, creates Facebook account

Craig "Lazie" Lynch vanished from Hollesley Bay Prison in Suffolk in September this year close to the end of a seven-year sentence for aggravated burglary.

Twitter Hacked, Defaced By “Iranian Cyber Army”

We have just found out that the same defacement is appearing at at least one other site, mawjcamp.org. We are not able to see what was at this domain before, but it is now displaying the same defacement that Twitter was only a few minutes ago.

Facebook’s Great Betrayal

Facebook’s Great Betrayal

Wait people put stuff on Facebook they don't want the whole world to see? Why the hell would you ever do something like that? That's like putting all your important documents in a box on a street corner and expecting them to stay safe. The most insidious part of Facebook's scheme to expose user data has been how the company framed them, claiming [...]

Get Facebook’s “old” news feed back

Are you already feeling some ill will toward Facebook for splitting up your Facebook home page with a split "News Feed" and "Live Feed"? Click "More" in your left-hand News Feed panel, then drag the "Status Updates" to the top of the update stack.

Using Twitter to defy the Government in Iran: Good. Using Twitter to defy the Government in Pittsburgh: Bad

On Thursday, F.B.I. agents descended on a house in Jackson Heights, Queens, and spent 16 hours searching it. The most likely reason for the raid: a man who lived there had helped coordinate communications among protesters at the Group of 20 summit in Pittsburgh. The man, Elliot Madison, 41, a social worker who has described himself as an [...]

“Open Source Twitter” proposed as antidote to Twitter’s DDOS vulnerability

“Open Source Twitter” proposed as antidote to Twitter’s DDOS vulnerability

Twitter and Facebook were paralyzed this past week by DDOS (distributed denial of service) attacks. As I understand it, those attacks are still ongoing. In this Wired Epicenter blog post by Eliot Van Buskirk, open source advocates propose that the only real solution to this vulnerability is to engage in another DDOS: "distributed delivery of [...]

Riot police raided a 30th birthday barbecue because they thought the organizer, who had invited his friends via Facebook, was staging a rave. Four [...]

Twitter in 1935

Twitter in 1935

A Twitter-like machine from 1935, that looks like a prop from the movie Brazil. Robot Messenger Displays Person-to-Person Notes In Public To aid persons who wish to make or cancel appointments or inform friends of their whereabouts, a robot message carrier has been introduced in London, England. Known as the “notificator,” the new machine [...]

The NZ couple who took off after a bank error dropped NZ$10,000,000 in their account have been finked out by a relative's Facebook update, which tipped off authorities that they're in China. But their chances of being caught have increased after they were joined overseas by Ms Young's sister, Aroha Hurring, who posted details about their location [...]

User photographs can still be found on many social networking sites even after people have deleted them, Cambridge University researchers have said.

More than 60% of US Twitter users fail to return the following month

From David Martin, Vice President, Primary Research, Nielsen Online... Oprah embarrassed herself on it with a stuck caps lock. That guy from Punk’d competed with “the most trusted name in news” for audience. A befuddled Jon Stewart shook his fist at it in anger. Let there be no doubt: Twitter has grown exponentially in the past few months [...]

Returning MySpace To Relevance

Returning MySpace To Relevance

He’s only been on the job for two weeks, but MySpace’s new CEO Owen Van Natta is already getting plenty of suggestions for how to “fix” the social network. Sure, MySpace has been generating revenue for longer than some of its rivals. But it is falling out of favor with both users and potential business partners: For example, MTV’s [...]
