Did you know that the second most popular Facebook Page is that of Homer Simpson, right behind Michael Jackson? Or that the overall amount of time spent on Facebook each month is 8.3 billion hours? (We shudder to think how much of that time is spent on FarmVille ). If you ever want to impress anyone with your knowledge of Facebook miscellanea, below is the ultimate cheat sheet in the form of a very large infographic. Enjoy! <a name="m!
Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has a history of speaking his mind on privacy, and what he speaks is often fraught with problems, ignorance, and arrogance.
This week on the PCWorld Podcast, editors Robert Strohmeyer, Mark Sullivan, Ginny Mies, and Nick Mediati dig into the latest Facebook privacy fiasco , uncovered by the PCWorld and Macworld teams on Wednesday night.
Facebook is a big part of millions and millions of peoples' lives, but what happens when you pull the plug? Last night I met a man who walked to the edge of the cliff and nearly deactivated his Facebook account.

Facebook's Web-wide "Like" button may spell trouble for Google Facebook recently added button to let people recommend Web sites to friends "Like" feature is more social version of Web link But search engines may not have access to data about recommendations Editor's note: Pete Cashmore is founder and CEO of Mashable , a popular blog about social media. He writes a weekly column about social networking and technology for CNN.com . London, England (CNN) -- Facebook dropped a bombshell on the tech industry last week in the form of a Web-wide "Like" button and the launch of the "Open Graph." Using this new platform, Web sites can drive Web traffic from Facebook by including Like buttons on their pages; every Like posts an update to that user's Facebook page. What's more, any Web site can customize its experience for you, if you're logged into Facebook: Suddenly CNN.com stories can be ranked not just by an editor but by your friends too.
Facebook users who choose not to link their user accounts to Facebook's public Pages are ending up with blank profiles containing no information at all. If you haven't experienced this problem, it's probably thanks to the somewhat high-pressure tactics Facebook is using to get you to accept these changes. The next time you visit your Profile page (if you haven't done so already), you'll be introduced to the new " Connected Profiles " option, one of the many potentially concerning privacy-related changes announced at Facebook's f8 developer conference last week.
The team behind Mozilla's Firefox browser announced today the availability of experimental code that website owners can add to their pages to allow site visitors to create an account, log-in or switch users with just a few simple clicks and no password to remember. The unveiling comes a week after Facebook fired a big shot across the web , staking a claim as the dominant provider of one-click portable identity.

In recent months, there has been Google and now Facebook vying to use our data on the Web. Google were the first with their Buzz product, using all our Gmail contacts to start a social network. This received a heavy amount of criticism for its invasion of privacy, from which, in my opinion, it has never fully recovered. At last weeks Facebook developers conference CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced their Open Graph and Open Graph API.
CIO — Privacy has long been a thorny issue for Facebook: Three years ago, the social networking site unveiled its Beacon advertising project, which resulted in a class-action lawsuit . December's privacy changes aimed at encouraging users to share more information publicly evoked plenty of criticism. And this week at Facebook's f8 conference, Facebook announced even more changes that affect users' privacy.
On an otherwise placid holiday weekend, one blog's commentary on a change to Facebook's terms of service created a firestorm of banter on the Web: does the social network claim ownership to any user content on the site, even if the user deletes it? Facebook reorganized its terms of service last Wednesday. In a blog post , company legal representative Suzie White provided an explanation. "We used to have several different documents that outlined what people could and could not do on Facebook, but now we're consolidating all this information to one central place," White wrote. "We've also simplified and clarified a lot of information that applies to you, including some things you shouldn't do when using the site." The blog post sounded benign.
Facebook users risk blackmail, privacy czar warns Globe and Mail Canada’ Privacy Commissioner, Jennifer Stoddart, says she’s concerned about recent changes to Facebook that allow third parties to store user data indefinitely.The world’s most popular social network has made it easier for its users to become the victims of ‘blackmail’ by watering down its protections of personal information, Canada’s top privacy official says. Facebook executives this week unveiled a series of changes to the site, which now boasts about 400-million users. One of the changes allows third-party developers who design games and other Facebook applications to store user data indefinitely.
Update 2: On May 26, Facebook launched new privacy controls , which will be rolled out to users over a few weeks. These instructions are for the old controls. If you have received the new controls, please use our revised instructions .
At last week's "f8" Facebook developer conference, Mark Zuckerberg's notable quotable was that Facebook is "building a Web where the default is social."
