Facebook speak volumes for employers sifting through job applicants,
right? Maybe not. While recent concerns about employers plumbing
social media for information about both current and potential
employees have led many users to adjust their privacy settings and
posting habits, a new study found that college students who posted
images of themselves enjoying a drink or two, or even using drugs were
just as responsible and hard-working as those who did not advertise

through it. Once Graph Search is on, Facebook prompts you to "search
for people, places, and things." Start typing. Graph Search is
supposed to recognize natural language and try to guess what you're
looking for, though that feature is hit or miss at the moment. You'll
quickly learn the phrases that will help you get to some sort of
result: "Friends who listen to Daft Punk and live in San Francisco" or
"Friends of my friends who work at TechHive." It's not exactly a
conversational way to search.

Does Facebook even see appeals or emails sent about my page or personal issue?
Again, bluntly, no. Facebook keeps and sometimes rotates out, one-single appeal email address that lands on someone’s list of things-to-do. The rest of them just reply with automated messages about how they might help, they might not. They won’t.

Groupon (GRPN) and Zynga (ZNGA) have gotten some swagger back in 2013.
Yet Facebook has been left out. Beyond the declines in the past
several weeks, FB stock has lost 25% in the past 12 months and 35%
since its May 2012 IPO.
Facebook has announced it is cutting its current 27 ads to about 13.
The remaining 13 ads will be overhauled and streamlined to make it
simpler for marketers to choose ads that fit their objective. Facebook
also decided to do away with a big ad menu and promised to offer
marketers a simple menu based on goals and objectives for which
Facebook promises to deliver suitable ad packages. This is good news
for smaller or medium-sized advertisers that may not have input from
an agency or previous results to build on and who may be more likely
to increase leads with results-based ads.
The most prominent ad product to be axed is Facebook's "Sponsored Stories."
NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A Norfolk 911 dispatcher is in hot water for a comment she posted on Facebook.
Dispatcher Jessica Camarillo posted a comment on Facebook concerning the police-involved shooting of Joshua Omar Johnson, who was gunned down at a Wells Fargo after trying to pass a bad check and then reportedly hitting an officer with his car.
Camarillo’s Facebook post read as follows:
"I think the officers should sue [Johnson's] family for putting the officers lives in danger, making detectives work past the time they were suppose to get off, the gas it took for them to get to the scene, the bullets used, the hospital bills, the equipment needed for forensics, and making me work the channel instead of reading my hot sexy book...lol"
PHOENIX - Arizona restaurateur Amy Bouzaglo became an instant Internet
celebrity last month after demonstrating an impressively short temper

The episode of "Kitchen Nightmares" drew more than a million viewers

Twitter and Facebook.
So it should surprise no one that her next step was to announce she
was shopping around her own reality TV show.

Since it's possible that another person could try to get into your
account and access your information, Facebook takes account security
very seriously. You don't want a stranger going through your messages,
posting status updates or changing the settings on your apps. The only
downside to this level of account safety is that sometimes you have to
take steps to access your account after a potential security threat.

Facebook Becomes Bearer of Bad News for Northfield Shoppers
PHOENIX (AP) - A Scottsdale, Ariz. restaurant reopened for business
Tuesday night to good reviews after it temporarily shut its doors
following an embarrassing reality TV experience.
Wife and husband Amy and Samy Bouzaglo recently invited the popular
makeover show "Kitchen Nightmares" to their restaurant, Amy's Baking
Co., after years of bad online reviews from unhappy customers. The
Bouzaglos complained on the show that they were the victims of online
bullying, but host and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay agreed with the
bad reviews. He declared the food at the upscale pizzeria undercooked
and poorly seasoned. The Bouzaglos got angry with Ramsay and he left
the restaurant before making it over — a first for his show.
Amy's Baking Co. temporarily closed last week after the episode aired
and hundreds of "Kitchen Nightmares" fans began leaving angry comments
on the restaurant's Facebook page.

Facebook can legally be compelled by subpoena to provide basic account information. However, federal law prohibits the social media giant from disclosing user content (messages, timeline postings, photos) in response to a civil subpoena. Depending on privacy settings, content may be visible only to friends or to the public. With no fault divorces available in all 50 states and D.C., the value of online evidence of infidelity is minimal.
