Parents Name Daughter “Like”

Beware of pressing the “like” button on this story, as we may have created a monster. Lior and Vardit Adler, a couple in Israel, just had a baby girl and decided to name her … “Like.” Yes, as in the Facebook‘s universal sign of approval, or as in a Valley Girl’s most frequently uttered word. “I wanted something unique,” explains Lior. “At first I was looking at Chinese names, and considered the name ‘Qing Yu Lang.’ But in the end, my wife responded to ‘Like.’ I have very few friends on Facebook—only about 120.  So far only 50 of them like ‘Like.’”

Debate This: Advertising For Love On Facebook

If you want to talk to me, why not just send me a message or write on my wall? It seems like a whole lot of trouble for nothing, considering I’ve never returned a Facebook poke in my life. I guess I just didn’t know how to respond. Do you return a poke with a poke? A message? Too confusing. This makes things a whole lot clearer. [I Love Charts] Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Annoying Facebook T-Shirts

“I Facebooked your mom.” “Poke me.” “I don’t read books, I read Facebook status updates.” It’s bad enough that we collectively spend so much time “liking” and “poking” and status-updating on things; there’s really no reason to wear your Facebook addiction on your sleeve. [BitRebels] Keep reading »

According to a new study, it’s not difficult to spot the most attention hungry, insecure women on Facebook and your other favorite social networking sites. You already know who they are because you see their photos every five seconds.
