The Anatomy of a Search Engine
Sergey Brin and Lawrence Page {sergey, page} Computer Science Department, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 Abstract In this paper, we present Google, a prototype of a large-scale search engine which makes heavy use of the structure present in hypertext.

Facebook will soon rely on Instagram for the majority of its ad revenue growth When Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger announced last month they were stepping away from Facebook, there was a collective gasp: Instagram’s future was suddenly at risk. So is Facebook’s. So far, Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram has been a total success — one of the biggest of the internet era. The app, which Facebook acquired for $1 billion in 2012, now has more than a billion users and should generate $8 billion to $9 billion in revenue this year, depending on whose estimate you use.

But Instagram isn’t just a nice thing for Facebook to have around.

Instagram prototypes handing your location history to Facebook This is sure to exacerbate fears that Facebook will further exploit Instagram now that its founders have resigned. Instagram has been spotted prototyping a new privacy setting that would allow it to share your location history with Facebook. That means your exact GPS coordinates collected by Instagram, even when you’re not using the app, would help Facebook to target you with ads and recommend you relevant content.

You Gave Facebook Your Number For Security. They Used It For Ads. Add “a phone number I never gave Facebook for targeted advertising” to the list of deceptive and invasive ways Facebook makes money off your personal information.
