image thumb8 I own Facebook And Zuckerberg Will Be My Employ! WTF!

I talk loads about Facebook on Startup Meme and often I have to skip reporting things primarily because the posts become too opinionated and are against the interest of our readers but this qualifies for the WTF tag. There is a man springing to his feet claiming he owns Facebook. Paul Ceglia, a New York based individual claims he owns 84 percent of the social network and even filed a lawsuit against Facebook CEO, the equally retarded Mark Zuckerberg.

The story is pretty fascinating where he tailors quite a story of coming across a contract which he signed with Mark Zuckerberg back in 2003, something he totally forgot. Further, he has pages of email conversations that he can use as evidence [err how long does it take to create these fake emails by the way?]. Other than stating he thinks Zuckerberg is an impossible person to deal with and that he can’t keep commitments. Feel sorry for Mark and I am guessing Ceglia is one of those persons who keeps his words and is spot on, I mean why would someone then complain about another man’s sincerity.

image thumb55 Compiling Public Data Isn’t Hacking: Facebook’s Strategy Exposes Public Information of 100 Million Users

I was up talking to a friend a couple of days on how writing about Facebook was the biggest pain in life and the adverse psychological problems it got me into. But you can’t help not talking about it, given that the third of everyone online is on the social network. Plus Facebook has more to do with simply connecting people, its more to do with their lifestyles and their privacy, which is the biggest concern.

I had been reading about the latest turn of events on Facebook about Ron Bowes making user data publically available. That data was of over 100 million users who are a part of the social network. But before I proceed let me state that Ron Bowes is not a hacker in my opinion. Why? Well
