Now, the social media phenomenon, created by Mark Zuckerberg, plans to go back to its roots to foment “meaningful interactions.” On January 11, the company announced an update to its “News Feed.” The News Feed will now allow for more friends and family content, instead of brands and news outlets. It is a
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
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.
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
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.

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.

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’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.

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.

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
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.

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
