Tyson Balcomb quit Facebook after a chance encounter on an elevator. He found himself standing next to a woman he had never met — yet through Facebook he knew what her older brother looked like, that she was from a tiny island off the coast of Washington and that she had recently visited the Space Needle in Seattle.
“I knew all these things about her, but I’d never even talked to her,” said Mr. Balcomb, a pre-med student in Oregon who had some real-life friends in common with the woman. “At that point I thought, maybe this is a little unhealthy.” [See & Read More]

The Federal Trade Commission announced its settlement yesterday with Facebook over privacy violations dating back to December 2009, and the social network looks to have emerged from the situation a ‘roided-up slugger who lives to swing another day.
The charges against Facebook included publicizing private content, failing to delete content deleted by users, and worst of all, over-sharing data with third party apps, the latter of which it most likely leveraged for profit. [Read More]

Just a year after The Social Network made the tagline "You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies" famous, Facebook has already increased that number by over 50 percent. According to a report in TechCrunch, the wildly popular website now has over 750,000,000 active users, or users who have logged into the site within the past 30 days.
Facebook hasn't officially announced the milestone, they haven't updated the official user count since they hit 500 million last year, but TechCrunch says a source close to the company let the news slip.
