iPad-Friendly Facebook App Blocked!

The much-anticipated and apparently leaked Facebook app for iPad had a short life. The crack was discovered by TechCrunch. The app was actually a modified version of the already available Facebook iPhone app.

Facebook didn’t really like the leaked application and has now blocked the app. Facebook doesn’t want the app to be used before they officially release it.

If you are the fortunate one to have already activated the app, you can keep using it. The activated app can still be used but those who haven’t early done the hacking cannot activate it any longer; they will have to wait for Zuckerberg and Co to officially release the app.

Zuckerberg Drops Off The No. 1 Spot On Google+

I suppose Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t too fond of all the publicity that was being generated from his Google+ profile as he recently changed his privacy settings to stop showing his friends and followers.

Zuckerberg, who previously held the top spot on Google+ quickly disappeared from peoples list, leaving many to find the humor in his respect of his own privacy, while Facebook remains a very public and open social network.

GeoHotz Found A Job At Facebook

It looks like Zuckerberg saw something in well known hacker, George Hotz (GeoHotz) after Hotz hacked the Sony Playstation 3 and got considerable attention from Sony. It wasn’t long though, until Sony dropped the case when they realized Hotz had a secret network of alliances, then known as the anonymous hacking group (and later redubbed Lulz Security).

George Hotz started working for Facebook in May when he was offered a job, but had not publicly announced it until June 17th. His Facebook profile is further confirmation that he is not joking.

Winklevoss Twins Finally Drop Suit Against Facebook

The Winklevoss twins have finally decided to drop their long legal case with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg, and accept the earlier $65 million settlement. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the name, Winklevoss, these twins supposedly gave Zuckerberg the ‘idea’ to create Facebook and felt that Zuckerberg stole their idea.

They have been going to court for over 7 years over Facebook, hoping to strike it rich and earn a much larger percentage of Facebook’s value. Thankfully, they have decided to drop their case and I hope, also drop their resentment towards Mark.

Facebook Loses 7.5M Users In U.S. And Canada

For the first time in Facebook history, the social media giant is actually losing customers at high numbers. Facebook lost six million users in the United States last month, dropping from 155 million to 149 million. It also lost an additional 1.52 million users in Canada, an 8% decrease.

Fortunately, growth was still up about 2% from growth in Mexico and Brazil but the fact that the numbers are taking a dive for Americans and Canadians seem a bit strange. Do you think people finally realized the toll Facebook took on privacy? Were they tired of having their friends know every little profile change and update about them?

Facebook For 5 Year Olds?

We recently wrote about Facebook having over 7 million users under the age of 13. Obviously this is a problem when you have such young children on the Internet providing many details about themselves. Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg recently stated that he believes children should be educated about Facebook at a really young age so the social media platform doesn’t hit them like a sack of bricks as soon as they turn 13.

Will The Real Mark Zuckerberg Please Stand Up?

A bankruptcy lawyer from Indianapolis has just been banned from Facebook. Why? Because his name is Mark Zuckerberg, identical to founder and CEO of Facebook. Although I wish I could report that this was the first time this happened, but I would be lying. Back in January, a 29 year-old woman named Kate Middleton was also excluded from the website after Facebook staff had noticed her name was identical to the Duchess of Cambridge.

Facebook Shares Server Information With The World

Facebook is opening its datacenter design and sharing everything from the manufacturer, make, and model of the servers that keep Facebook online and available 24/7 to how the datacenter is powered and cooled to keep those servers running smoothly. Facebook’s initiative is to give fans a clear picture of what it takes to run the servers as well as giving people who work in corporate IT an idea of the kind of power it takes to run a massive website such as Facebook. Given CEO Zuckerberg’s relationship with President Obama, we can speculate that Obama had some influence in regards to transparency.

Facebook CEO To Hold Obama’s 2012 Meeting

President Barack Obama has announced on Facebook that he will be holding a Town Hall meeting with Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg at Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto this month. The big event will happen on April 20th at 1:45pm PST. Users can participate by submitting questions about innovation and the economy through the Facebook Event wall. Facebook will select the top ones that will be addressed during the meeting.

Over a thousand people have already signed up to attend the event, however, the event will also be streamed live for viewers all over the country to enjoy. The last…

Facebook Sued For $1 Billion Over Intifada Page

Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg have been served with yet another lawsuit. This one is seeking over a $1 Billion in damages for a page that was setup on the social network. The “Third Intifada” page, which was against Israel, received almost 400,000 fans before it was take down.

The lawsuit was filed in Washington by Larry Klayman, a renowned American activist and former Justice Department prosecutor, and claims that…
