Earlier this week, a man in New Jersey went to the gym specifically to let his Facebook friends know how he was pumping iron at the gym. The third year real estate agent, Derrick Ricci, had just come off of his fourth consecutive month without selling a property and thought it was time to give his social status a much needed confidence boost.
In his personal life, Derrick is alone and miserable, living a pathetic existence in a $550/month condo near a local community college. However, on Facebook everybody knows him as a positive guy with tons of muscle pics and never shy to show off his awesome new back tattoo. “I haven’t seen him in like fifteen years,” said former high school homeroom classmate George Richards. “I heard his hot high school girlfriend cheated on him and his life pretty much went in the shitter from there.”
Derrick checked-in to Powerhouse Gym on Foursquare around 6:23pm, adding the fact that he was specifically focusing on his, “Upper body” that evening. As of now, he has two likes and a “Hot! lol” comment from a regretful ex-hook up of his.
BlackBerry maker changes its name and launches long-awaited BlackBerry 10, featuring an all-touch keyboard. The consumer-friendly smartphone features communications like email, texts, and Facebook. As of now, the smartphone is expected to be called, “We’re Still Not iPhone.”
A new study suggests a person’s Facebook profile may reveal signs of mental illness that might not necessarily emerge in a session with a psychiatrist. The most blatant sign identified by leading psychiatrists…people who liked Adam Sandler’s, Jack and Jill.
Facebook said in December that it would begin testing out paid messages, allowing users to contact people with whom they have no direct connection in return for a fee. This Thursday, Mashable discovered that sending a message to Facebook founder Zuckerberg will cost $100. Zuckerberg hopes to use the extra $100 fees to start his own, “Money to Wipe My Ass with App.”
Facebook shares rose nearly 4% on Wednesday, climbing above $30 for the first time since July on speculation the social networking giant is poised to make a major announcement. The news spread across Facebook news-feeds with positive comments from millions of users, except that one annoying bitch from high school who managed to spin the story into something negative and somehow having to do with her promiscuous ex-boyfriend.
