    Every now and then, 140 characters are just not enough. Surely there are some children out there who could educate Nikki Haley and her social media team about the dangers of linking one's Twitter account with Instagram, because sometimes ... oh, never mind. They'll figure it out eventually.

    A judge in southern Iran has ordered Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to appear in court to answer complaints by individuals who say Facebook-owned applications Instagram and Whatsapp violate their privacy, semiofficial news agency ISNA reported Tuesday. It quoted Ruhollah Momen Nasab, an official with the paramilitary Basij force, as saying that the judge also ordered the two apps blocked. It is highly unlikely that Zuckerberg would appear in an Iranian court since there is no extradition treaty between Iran and the United States. Some Iranian courts have in recent years issued similar rulings that could not be carried...

His handle is @VP and everyone should probably start following him immediately.

    Two of the country’s most influential gun control groups are in talks with Facebook’s legal team in an effort to see gun sales banned on the world’s largest social network and its sister site Instagram. Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America has partnered with Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns to put pressure on Facebook to prohibit the private selling or trading of guns on its platforms — a practice that’s as widespread as it is unregulated. “Facebook and Instagram are enabling people to sell weapons, often with no questions asked and no background checks required,” said Mayors...
  • Madonna posts picture of 13-year-old son with liquor

    Madonna posted a picture of her 13-year-old son Rocco Ritchie holding a bottle of gin Saturday on Instagram, according to the New York Daily News. "The party has just begun!" Madonna captioned the shot, which included two of Rocco's apparently underage friends holding bottles of vodka. Note to self: Tear up kids' invites to birthday parties at Madonna's house. According to E! News, the photo was taken in the Swiss Alps where the legal drinking age is 16. But, in her defense, Madonna probably never went to math class. Of course, people immediately criticized Madonna on Instagram, prompting her to...

    Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) on Monday asked Instagram to stop its users from selling firearms. “A growing number of Instagram’s users are conducting unregulated gun sales through Instagram’s widespread mobile and Internet application,” Markey wrote in a letter to the company on Monday, citing a Daily Beast report from last month. Markey said he is concerned that “a significant number of unlawful sales of firearms may be occurring through Instagram’s mobile and online services.” Markey noted the ability of Instagram users to remain anonymous and find gun sales through “an array of ever-expanding search terms” such as #gunsforsale, #gunstore and...

    Gun sales booming on Instagram By Jeane MacIntoshPublished October 23, 2013New York Post The gun market is booming on Instagram. The popular photo-posting app – bought last year by Facebook for $1 billion – has become the go-to place for folks looking to buy and sell firearms on the Internet, boasting a web of private owners and professional dealers with shotguns, handguns and assault rifles for sale on the open market, according to a report by The Daily Beast. Instagram is not an e-commerce site, and has no stated policy barring firearm sales. Users of the app can readily find...

    Google announced Friday that it would begin placing users' activity and photos into advertisements and recommendations seen by the account-holders' Google+ contacts, similar to Facebook's "Sponsored Stories," which led to a class-action lawsuit that cost the Menlo Park company $20 million and forced it to offer members an option to opt out of such uses. "For example, your friends might see that you rated an album 4 stars on the band's Google Play page. And the +1 you gave your favorite local bakery could be included in an ad that the bakery runs through Google," the Mountain View search giant...

    George Zimmerman's trial defense attorney Don West recently reported he received e-mails from people threatening his daughters with rape over a controversial post on Instagram. Rachel West, who was not in the family picture, was in the courtroom Monday. In a response to a July 2nd prosecution's request to investigate the social media post, West said the family photo prompted "threats of violence" that were "vicious." West also said he was distressed that in a request to investigate the post, the prosecution had made "reckless, dangerous and inaccurate allegations." Prosecutors linked the motive for the post to witness Rachel Jeantel,...

    Instagram just set off a bomb inside its new privacy policy and terms of service. New wording essentially makes it possible to turn people’s photos posted after Jan. 16 using Instagram into advertisements. In other words, that sutro-toned picture of your beloved Lhasa apso freshly coiffed after her grooming might well become an ad for Classy Canine Dog Salon. The language at issue: [Y]ou hereby grant to Instagram a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use the Content that you post on or through the Service, except that you can control who can view certain of...

    If you could take a look inside any building that's off limits, where would you look? Perhaps, you'd take a gander into Apple's headquarters, or check out what's going on at the Playboy Mansion. Maybe you would rather just see what's going on at CNBC's headquarters. Well, now there is a website that is aiming to let people do just that and its using Facebook (fb) owned Instagram to make it happen. Basically, Worldcam is aggregating images posted in Instagram that are tagged with a location to feed users' searches. Users enter the general location and name of building they...

The vast majority of jihadis online, be they on forums or social networking sites[i], say nothing. Skillful translations and insightful analyses by definition tell us little about this potentially lethal yet silent majority."

    Apple is primarily competing against Google in the mobile industry right now, but a new feature could take aim at Facebook, a powerful company we expect Apple to be competing with more in the future. The Mac site 9to5Mac has uncovered what appears to be a secret new feature in a future version of Apple's iOS, "Media Stream." This includes "Photo Streams," which you can share and subscribe to, and some Foursquare-like feature called "Find My Friends." Sure sounds like a built-in competitor to Facebook's news/activity/photo/check-in feeds. And sounds even more like Instagram, the iPhone photo app/social network that has...
