Facebook meets Xbox Live

Facebook meets Xbox Live

Gizmodo, among other selected bloggers, was given a sneak peek at the Facebook integration on Xbox Live coming this Fall update. Here’s what they shared with us about their hands-on experience.

Chicks rule Facebook

Chicks rule Facebook

According to data collected and analysed by Brian Solis, chicks rule almost every social network on the planet, including Twitter, MySpace and, you guessed it, Facebook (57%)! Only Digg has a predominant male audience, while there’s a gender equivalence on LinkedIn and YouTube.

Did you survive Facebook’s extended site maintenance?

Did you survive Facebook’s extended site maintenance?

Tens of thousands of people were deprived access to their Facebook accounts for the past days, some even more than a week! By now, forunately, most accounts are available again and have returned unharmed (save for a crop in FarmVille here, and a bankrupt restaurant in Restaurant City there). Photos, wall posts, and other Facebook data should all still be there, but as a downside, Facebook had to reset privacy settings to their most restrictive settings for the recent updates of those affected.

Facebook Fail Friday: Penalized poke

Facebook Fail Friday: Penalized poke

A 36-year-old woman living in Henderson, Tennessee (USA), was arrested for poking someone on Facebook. By using the virtual “poke” option to contact a Hendersonville woman on Facebook, Shannon D. Jackson violated her restraining order which prohibits “telephoning, contacting or otherwise communicating with the petitioner.”

Facebook Events redesigned

Facebook Events redesigned

Facebook Events has recently been redesigned to make it faster and easier for us to create an event and invite people. Along with the redesign, the Wedding event type has been added for those who want to get rid of fancy, handwritten wedding invites (look under the Other category). Wedding 2.0, baby!

Another burglar busted checking his Facebook account on victim’s computer

Another burglar busted checking his Facebook account on victim’s computer

Just two weeks after the first bust of a Facebook-addicted thief, another burglar made EXACTLY the same mistake of checking his Facebook account on the victim’s computer and not logging out afterwards. What did burglars do before the existence of Facebook? Make coffee at the crime scene? Grab a bag of potato chips and watch a movie?

Should Obama be killed Facebook poll: case closed

Should Obama be killed Facebook poll: case closed

There were those who believed that the creator of the “Should Obama Be Killed?” Facebook poll might be a sinister white supremacist out to cause world disruption. Some were less convinced, as all the four potential answers to the poll–“Yes”, “no”, “Maybe” and “if he cuts my health care”–were spelled correctly.

Facebook movie “The Social Network” starts filming this month

The much-debated Facebook movie will begin filming this month in Cambridge, Massachusetts. “The Social Network”, its current working title, tells the story of Harvard dropout Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg) getting dumped at a bar in Boston and eventually adding the girlfriend who dumped him as a friend on his multibillion-dollar social networking site.

Facebook penguin emoticon

Facebook penguin emoticon

An American politician called Joe Moore once said: “It’s practically impossible to look at a penguin and feel angry”. So maybe that’s why Facebook this month added a cute penguin emoticon to the existing arsenal of Facebook Chat emoticons, to compensate for the aggressive shark emoticon added back in May.

Jigsaw is returning to the big screen on October 23rd, but until the release of Saw VI you can help spread the death trap engineer’s message through Facebook. The Saw VI gift is completely free and as a bonus, the recipient receives 1 credit to spend in Facebook’s gift shop.

Burglar busted checking his Facebook account on victim’s computer

The Journal reports that an alleged burglar was arrested after the victim found out someone checked his Facebook account on her computer and forgot to log out before leaving the home with two diamond rings worth over $3500. I wouldn’t be surprised if he updated his status to say “selling two diamond rings worth over $3500 for just $2500, anyone interested?”.

George Clooney on Facebook? Never!

George Clooney on Facebook? Never!

I’m not afraid of growing old. Gray-haired guys can be cooler than Batman, just think of Sir Sean Connery and Samuel L. Jackson. Or take George Clooney for example. Hanging out with Brad Pitt, getting chased by hot models, drinking Nespresso,… Not bad for a 50-year-old! The only thing I will have to avoid is dropping behind in love for technology.

Status tagging probably expanding to comments soon

Status tagging probably expanding to comments soon

Sooner than expected, Facebook launched the new @tagging feature that lets you tag “anything you’re connected to on Facebook” in your status updates, and also in wall posts using the Share widget on another person’s page.
