Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
A new survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that one in five divorces cite Facebook activity as evidence of cheating, proof the spouse has gone crazy town, or documentation of irreconcilable differences. What? “He likes to play Farmville, I don’t know who he is anymore.” If only. Apparently, most of the problems seem to stem from people reconnecting with their old flames on the site and then flirtin’ it up. Hey, it was from Facebook chats with his mistress that Eva Longoria found out Tony Parker was unfaithful to her early on in their marriage (what led to Eva filing for divorce recently, though, was her finding flirty text messages on Tony’s cell phone). But seriously, checking out old crushes is, like, 50 percent of the reason I have a page! Although, sadly (for me), most of them are gay now. Womp-womp! [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
As much as Facebook, Twitter, and the internet are a part of our lives, they remain a weirdly invisible part. If you’re a die-hard Facebook fan, you should check out Gerry Mckay’s Adidas shoes design, which puts the Facebook brand front and center in your wardrobe (well, more like front and down … on your feet). Anyhoo. The designer’s concept is only a creative idea—these kicks aren’t actually available anywhere yet. But we’d bet that with the viral action he’s getting with these images, tech companies and Adidas are bound to notice, and possibly think it’s a good idea. Check out McKay’s Twitter shoe mock-up, after the jump! [Gawker] Keep reading »
We may have to wait until season two of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” to see how Mama Grizzly disciplined her cub for calling kids “gay” and “f****t” on her Facebook page. But a spokesman for Facebook issued a statement this weekend to the gossip blog Hollywood Life about Willow Palin‘s homophobic slurs. “We want Facebook to be a place where people can openly discuss issues and express their views, while respecting the rights and feelings of others,” the statement said. “Facebook is highly self-regulating, and people can and do report content that they find questionable or offensive. We take our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities very seriously and react quickly to reports of content and behavior that violate our policies. Specifically, we’re sensitive to content that singles out private individuals, or that includes pornography, direct statements of hate, or actionable threats of violence.” Willow Palin calling someone a “f****t” isn’t a direct statement of hatred? Hey, Facebook, that’s really “gay.” [Hollywood Life] Keep reading »
