Facebook Relationship Status Change Ends In Tragedy

Last week I changed my relationship status on Facebook from “engaged” to “single”, since I had decided my break was now a breakup. Emma Forrester, a married woman in the U.K., changed her status to single too, only her husband responded by hacking her to death with a meat cleaver. Wayne Forrester told police he had been provoked by his wife changing her marital status on her Facebook entry, and had taken copious amounts of cocaine and alcohol before the murder. He’s been jailed for a minimum of 14 years. There’s really nothing I can say about this, because it’s insanely f–ked up. [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »

Did Bristol Palin Get Married?

Did Bristol Palin get married? According to her Facebook page, the pregnant daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is now going by Bristol Palin-Johnston. Did Bristol marry her fiancé and baby daddy Levi Johnston? One would have to imagine a quickie-wedding might be a tidy boost to Palin’s messy run for the VP seat. Keep reading »

QR Codes May Change The Way We Pick Up People At Bars

You know those QR codes that Ralph Lauren Rugby is using so you can use your phone to buy clothes instantly? Well, a couple designers have a new idea about how to use them. Marguerite Charmante and Wolfgeng Peter Schmiller put QR codes on a dress, and, hypothetically, a guy could see a girl waiting for a drink at the bar and scan the code on her dress using his phone. Instantly, he could be directed to her Facebook page (or blog, or whatever website she wanted), and he could assess whether or not he wanted to go after her. Just another way technology could help us become creepy stalkers! [Make] Keep reading »

    Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Internet Stalking

    I recently found out via Facebook that my man-friend’s ex-girlfriend (with whom I’ve had a not-so-pleasant experience) is now living in New York, working for a former employer of mine, and is connected to a good friend. This is a major bummer, as it has revived my deep-seeded urge to keep tabs on her. I think the man-friend thinks I am crazy, but I truly believe all members of the human race indulge in a little internet stalking — and to prove it, I decided to quiz the guys on my IM about their habits.

    Facebook Goes Gender Specific

    It always annoyed me a little that on Facebook my mini-feed would say, “Catherine just updated their About Me,” but I never gave too much thought to it. Well, Facebook just announced that they’ve updated it to say either “his” or “her.” This is great for people who care about matching nouns with pronouns, but not so good for transgendered members of the Facebook community. Luckily, Facebook will allow people to manually opt out of the gender classification. “We have a lot of respect for these communities, which is why it will still be possible to remove gender entirely from your account,” said Facebook product manager Naomi Gleit. It’s nice to know they’re sensitive to this, isn’t it? [CNET] Keep reading »
