Wall Street isn’t hitting the “like” button on Facebook’s latest algorithm change. Shares of the social network are down more than 4 percent in early morning trading on Friday, following CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement the social network would undergo a “major change” to the News Feed, prioritizing posts from friends and family. “The research shows that when we use social media to connect with people we care about, it can be good for our well-being,” wrote Zuckerberg in a post on Thursday explaining the decision. “We can feel more connected and less lonely, and that correlates with long term measures of...

Insights: What Worked (And What Didn’t Work) In 2017 In Digital Media And Entertainment

Are we done here yet? The end of the year is a good time to look back at this messy, disfigured, endlessly shifting mess called 2017, and assess How Things Went. And boy, am I ready for 2017 to go. For now, though, let’s look at some of the big shifts in this year full of change to see what we have before us as we head into the new year.

Journalism made a comeback, kind of.

In the wake of Donald Trump’s election, and his endless attacks on mainstream news organizations (among many other institutions, such as the FBI, the judiciary and the Constitution), mainstream news organizations such as the New York Times and Washington Post staged a comeback from years of decline, notching record numbers of digital subscribers and plenty of hot scoops. All wasn’t completely rosey, however. At one point, a newspaper group proposed getting Congressional

What would you do if Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg cashed you out for a cool $65 million? Pay off your crushing student loan debt? Throw some money on blue chip stocks and let it grow?

Facebook Will Reportedly Test Pre-Roll Ads On Its Watch Tab

To this point, Facebook has resisted the pre-roll advertising format that is common around the online video industry. As the social media giant continues to incubate a lineup of original shows, however, it appears to be shifting its strategy. According to a report from AdAge, Facebook will test short spots that will play in front of content on the four-month-old Watch tab.

AdAge's report cites ad industry sources, who believe Facebook plans to limit its pre-roll experiment to the Watch tab. Videos that show up on the news feeds of individual users will continue to launch without ads, though they may sometimes feature so-called "mid-rolls" that appear in the middle of their runtime.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has indicated on several occasions that he does not feel pre-rolls fit with Facebook's brand, mostly because he believes users do not want to be immediately interrupted as they browse social content.

Jay-z on His "Complicated" Friendship With Kanye West and Their "Underlying Competition"

Jay-z on His
Jay-z and Kanye West are slowly but surely making progress. In a wide-ranging interview with T, The New York Times Style Magazine, Jay-z got candid about their fractured friendship, saying he hopes to resolve their issues when the time is right. Together, the superstars made the 2011 album Watch the Throne and later embarked on a co-headlining tour of Europe and North America.

Fashion Flashback: Salma Hayek Dissects Her Favorite Oscar Red Carpet Looks

Fashion Flashback: Salma Hayek Dissects Her Favorite Oscar Red Carpet Looks
When Salma Hayek came to the States, she faced a lot of rejection. “I was rejected over and over, and everybody told me, ‘You will never make it in this town. You’re Mexican, you have an accent,’” she says. Nevertheless, she persisted, and with 2002’s “Frida,” Hayek became the first and only Mexican woman to be nominated in the lead actress category — and the iconic painter remains her biggest artistic inspiration. “I learned that this woman woke up every morning with pain,” says Hayek, who shows an empathetic side in “Beatriz at Dinner.” “[Frida Kahlo] had so many things going against her, and yet she found a will to say, ‘I am my best work of art.’”

Hayek’s first time presenting at the Oscars was a milestone. “Not everybody wanted to give a dress to the new Mexican girl, and I couldn’t afford one, so I was very lucky that Giorgio Armani offered,” says [link=nm

Facebook Says Instagram, WhatsApp Have 300 Million Daily Active Users For ‘Stories’ Features

Two Facebook subsidiaries are finding massive audiences for disappearing content. During the social giants earnings call for the third quarter of 2017, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that both Instagram Stories and WhatsApp Status have surpassed 300 million daily active users.

Both Stories and Status let users post short photo and video updates that disappear after a set period of time and can be sent directly to friends and followers. The Instagram version of that feature was billed as a direct clone of Snapchat's Stories when it launched in August 2016. The latter, built into the messaging client WhatsApp, arrived six months later.

Both Stories and Status have grown tremendously while Snapchat has faltered. TechCrunch, in its coverage of Facebook's latest earnings call, noted that the user base for Instagram and WhatsApp's ephemeral content is nearly double that of Snapchat's. At its last report, Snapchat had 173 million daily active users.

Alien 3 to Mindhunter: David Fincher’s outsider protagonists

Ryan Lambie Nov 3, 2017

Netflix's Mindhunter is the latest example of the unique, outsider characters in the work of David Fincher...

When FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) sits down with convicted serial killer Edmund Kemper (Cameron Britton) in the Netflix series Mindhunter, he’s both terrified and fascinated. Kemper, serving multiple life sentences for a spate of brutal kidnappings and murders - including his own mother - could offer a valuable insight into a criminal mindset that was barely understood in the late 1970s. Ford hopes to use a series of interviews with Kemper, and convicts like him, to build up a psychological profile which could be used to help track down other serial murderers; it soon becomes apparent, however, that Ford’s fascination with Kemper runs beyond the strictly professional.

Watch Mark Zuckerberg Slip Up And Admit He's Not A Human

Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg understands a lot about the human psyche, but does that make him human? That sounds like a stupid question to ask, until you watch this video: 

That's going to be a quote that is spun out of control by conspiracy theorists over the next few decades! So in the hypothetical scenario Zuckerberg accidentally outed himself as non-human...what is he? Robot, reptilian, alien? Maybe he Is Facebook?! Maybe the Mark Zuckerberg we know is an AI and the actual Zuckerberg never leaves his home. We need real theories here guys, this is serious business.

Google Is Sending Internet Balloons to Puerto Rico to Bring Communication Back to the Island

After Hurricane Maria left Puerto Rico without clean drinking water, limited forms of communication, and 80% of the island without electricity, people all over the country, including big name celebrities, banded together to raise funds for the ravaged U.S Territory. Now, Google is stepping up efforts to help with Internet balloons.

Google’s parent company Alphabet announced last Friday that their stratospheric balloons are currently bringing Internet service to areas of Puerto Rico with non-functioning cellphone towers. “Project Loon,” which engineered the advanced technology, allows for basic communication and data usage in collaboration with At&T.

19 things we miss about the early days of the web

Michael takes a look back at early days of the web, with a 28k modem, a GeoCities webpage, and a webcam stream of a coffee pot...

GeoCities websites, instant messaging, free AOL discs and blocking up the phone line - today we’re gonna party like we’ve just connected at 56 kbit/s. That is, we’re going to take a nostalgic look at the early days of the World Wide Web.

Okay, okay - we know that the Internet existed before the web and that there were other ways of connecting to distant computer networks before the Internet was even established. What we’re interested in is a period that began around the middle of the 90s when the World Wide Web first became a popular destination. Let’s get something straight though - just because we miss something, it doesn’t mean that we want it back.

David Fincher Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

David Fincher Movies Ranked from Worst to Best
“There’s a difference between being obsessed and being motivated,” Mark Zuckerberg blithely insists during the opening moments of “The Social Network.” But the thing about the characters in a David Fincher movie is that they never seem to know what that difference is. In fact, the same might be true of David Fincher himself. And thank God for that, because if the Denver native had any idea where to draw the line between determination and dementedness he probably would have left Hollywood after being fired off his first Hollywood feature. Three times.

Ever since he transitioned from visionary music video director to features, Fincher has established himself as one of the most idiosyncratic and indispensable voices of mainstream American cinema. Often described as “the next Kubrick” (even while Kubrick was still alive), Fincher is an unyielding perfectionist working within a deeply imperfect system. From “The Game” and “Fight Club

President Trump’s Net Worth Plummets by $600 Million as He Drops 92 Spots on Forbes’ Rich List

President Trump’s Net Worth Plummets by $600 Million as He Drops 92 Spots on Forbes’ Rich List
Donald Trump‘s net worth has taken a nosedive since he turned to politics, according to Forbes.

The magazine’s venerable list of the country’s 400 richest people ranks the president at #248, dropping an astonishing 92 spots from last year. The publication now lists his net worth at $3.1 billion.

Forbes cites several reasons for the fall. Specifically, “a tough New York real estate market, particularly for retail locations; a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign.” Less than two weeks after being elected president, Trump agreed to pay $25 million to settle lawsuits against the now-defunct Trump University.

Julianne Moore in Suburbicon and 5 more movie "twins"Julianne Moore in Suburbicon and 5 more movie "twins"Adriana Floridia10/13/2017 1:48:00 Pm

There must be a shortage of actual twins in Hollywood, because actors increasingly have been taking on double duty when the role calls for it.

We're going to see it again this month in George Clooney's Suburbicon, which has Julianne Moore playing twin sisters. Suburbicon follows a seemingly normal family whose lives are rocked after a home invasion. Written by the Coen Brothers, this is going to be one wild family "drama". It's also got us thinking about more occasions when one actor took on the role of siblings. 

Here are our five favourite times one actor played twins:

Armie Hammer, The Social Network

It was a pretty bold move for Armie Hammer to have his breakout role as the Winklevoss twins. We were pretty convinced that the
