The Fall Of Facebook?
The Facebook fallout following the big data breach just keeps getting worse. An ex-insider confirms that data harvesting has been routinely going on since at least 2012, starting with those personality quizzes that your 48-year-old Auntie Jane shares. In the meantime, Facebook has suspended the account of the Canadian whistleblower, Christopher Wylie, because of course, that’s going to go down well. To be fair, it’s not been a great week for Zuckerberg either, who’s not only seen a $4.9 Billion fall in his fortune but has also been summoned by a parliamentary committee in the UK to explain himself.

Memewatch: Always Sunny Plate Toss
We’ve been seeing a lot of this “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” meme recently. Although it’s carrying less stock in the memeconomy than “Savage Patrick/Thanos” it’s still one to keep an eye on. It’s super exploitable, with both historical and modern references.

LinkedIn Adds Snapchat-like Filters... What?
When using LinkedIn, the first thing that comes to mind is “I wish that this was more like Snapchat!” Just us? Oh, ok. Well, it’s happening anyway. LinkedIn has launched Snapchat-like filters. Surely, adding gif support or other important features would come first?
Why indeed.

Meme Restaurant Kickstarter Gets $6.66 & Death Threats
When Catriona Crehan started a Kickstarter campaign for a meme restaurant, she received messages reading “kill yourself” and other awful things. Sure, the idea sounds a little bit cringy, but the worst part of this story is that she began this Kickstarter with her autistic younger brother. Great job, internet. You just cyberbullied a child. The internet has created many wonderful things. Cyberbullying isn’t one of them. If you or a loved one has experienced cyberbullying, please report it and click here for further information that may help you. Trust us, you’re not alone.
