You can use Messenger without Facebook now

Just as the title says, you only need your phone number to use Messenger now. The big question, of course, is how Facebook is going to make money from this. Will they follow a similar system to China's equivalent of Facebook, WeChat, which takes a cut of the transactions from buying clothes or hailing a cab through the app? Or will they manage to come up with something more profitable? Whichever way Facebook chooses to reap profits, I hope it also improves the app and its services to consumers. If Facebook does, I promise not to call its actions corporate greed. Regardless, apparently old school texting really has been outdated.

Looking out at the world

You hide your true self through Facebook and peer out at everyone else without them knowing.

Interesting idea, both in concept and practice. Getting rid of the like button would make it more difficult to manage news feeds, but would it provide a more immersive experience for users?

Interesting video about the evidence that facebook gains revenue fraudulently through "likes" of certain pages. Be careful if you have a facebook page for your business or otherwise!

Facebook...the cause of all our problems.

Contributed by Amanda Slater

People may think they are safe by updating or publishing their personal information in a Facebook status, but this is not true. Nothing it's true in Facebook, that's why we have to be careful, because Facebook it's like a predator looking for it's prey. It can harm you at anytime or even kill you. Facebook has eyes, it's watching everything you post. It sounds very creepy but it's real. This is not a joke, this is real. We have to be more conscience in the things we write on this page ,because in any moment it can change your life.
