Some pretty cool science in this article. But don't let that scare you, there's also some pretty pictures showing how memes spread.


This is a bit concerning. I'm sure Facebook must be scrambling to address it.

3 years ago, we published a report on 2011 Facebook Demographics & Statistics that covered gender, location, education, and more (US only). Recently we dove into Facebook’s Social Advertising platform to get a refreshed snapshot of the same data points to see what exactly has happened over...

At 13, I’ve been noticing something different: Facebook is losing teens lately. And I think I know why.
Facebook decided to bring conversations to the forefront with their recent rollout of hashtags. But just how hot are hashtags over Facebook and Twitter? We took a look at how fast brands have been adopting them and how they compare to their frequency on Twitter.

We are sure this will turn out to be illegal in the EU. Not to mention creepy. Come on Facebook, you can do better.

I want to respond personally to the outrageous press reports about PRISM:

Facebook is not and has never been part of any program to give the US or any other gov...ernment direct access to our servers. We have never received a blanket request or court order from any government agency asking for information or metadata in bulk, like the one Verizon reportedly received. And if we did, we would fight it aggressively. We hadn't even heard of PRISM before yesterday.

When governments ask Facebook for data, we review each request carefully to make sure they always follow the correct processes and all applicable laws, and then only provide the information if is required by law. We will continue fighting aggressively to keep your information safe and secure.

We strongly encourage all governments to be much more transparent about all programs aimed at keeping the public safe. It's the only way to protect everyone's civil liberties and create the safe and free society we all want over the long term.

What do you think? Should a Facebook 'like' be considered free speech?

Facebook is appealing a ruling made last year over a dispute regarding a Facebook like as free and protected speech.
