A Tribute to a Murderer by…. Facebook!

A recent article at dailymail.com.uk reveals David Cameron’s anger and utter disgust towards Facebook for allowing a tribute page to a murderer, Raoul Moat, to be activated and used on its site: ‘RIP Raoul Moat You Legend!’ page.

This “madness” comes a few weeks after the anger of the Pakistani community at Facebook for allowing a group called “Draw Mohammed Day” to be activated and publicized. With more and more of these mistakes I can’t help but wonder: “What the hell is Facebook thinking?”

Facebook FINALLY Surrenders to Criticism & Adds “Panic Button”

Facebook Bows to Pressure!

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article entitled: Why is Facebook Panicking about the Panic Button? Thoughts & Insights. The main reason for that post was trying to figure out why Facebook was refusing to add the Panic Button and speculating the reasons behind such a decision.

However, it seems that Facebook has finally bowed to the pressure and began providing a new application which allows young users to report suspicious behavior.

What Does This Application Do?

This application allows all Facebook users to access an advice center from their home page where they will be able to report suspected grooming or inappropriate sexual behavior.

Joanne Shields, Facebook’s vice president, acknowledges that the new app likely won’t be a “silver bullet” of social networking safety. She insists that the industry, the parents, the police and the young people themselves need to be well educated about their online activities and the threats that might face them as a result.

Everyone’s Doing it! [video]

Creativity is hard to find these days; hundreds of lame and generic advertisements can be a proof of that! Advertising and PR agencies are constantly looking for the “right” ad concept to present their clients with. They jump up and down, roll over, turn upside down and sometimes even climb on trees in order to [...]
