iOS Tweak Brings Facebook Chat Heads Onto The iPhoneSay what you will of Facebook Home but what it has brought to Android devices is a pretty convenient chat feature called Chat Heads.

    Britons Look To Facebook To Sell Kidneys

    Britons Look To Facebook To Sell KidneysTimes are hard, but after reading about this, you might be thankful that you have a roof over your head, not to mention a job to go to in the morning. Apparently, struggling Britons have already placed an offer on Facebook to sell their kidneys. Yes sir, those who are in dire straits have actually turned to social network Facebook as a medium of advertisement for their organs, with a price set up to £30,000 a pop – without taking into consideration the various medical and legal risks involved. This is no doubt an offence under the Human Tissue Act to buy or even advertise organs for sale in the UK, which means whoever does this on Facebook could be looking at the possibility of spending some time in the slammer.

    Consumer Groups Wants FTC To Investigate Facebook/WhatsApp DealA couple of weeks ago, Facebook had the industry in a frenzy when they announced that they would be acquiring instant messenger app, WhatsApp, for a whopping $19 billion, making it several more times more expensive than what they paid for Instagram which was $1 billion.

    In a way this is a good move for Facebook as they would acquire one of the world’s most popular and most used instant messaging services, but it seems that not everyone is too pleased about the deal as two consumer groups have recently filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, asking them to investigate the pending acquisition.
