First their long-time spokesman Jared Fogle's house was searched by the FBI in connection with child pornography and then details emerged from a subpoena detailing his Craiglist relationship with a minor.
Subway responded on their Facebook page Aug. 1, but fans only wanted to discuss their favorite sub shop.
You still can’t actually dislike someone’s post on Facebook, but now you can use the social network to end your marriage.
A New York Supreme Court justice has ruled that a woman named Ellanora Baidoo can legally serve her husband a divorce summons through Facebook messenger.
She legally married Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku back in 2009, but because he wouldn’t go through with a traditional Ghanaian wedding ceremony, she now wants out of the relationship. They separated, and the only way she has been able to contact him is on the phone or through Facebook, so there has been no way to get him the required paperwork.
Until now. Her lawyer will be messaging him once a week for three weeks, or until he finally responds.
A 2013 study suggested that excessive Facebook usage is likely to cause relationship problems in the first place, which could lead to a breakup or divorce.
So it’s all now just an endless cycle of drama and heartbreak online.
And until your soon-to-be ex responds, it’s probably best to change your status to “It’s Complicated.”
It’s one thing to get a little annoyed at anyone posting too many baby pictures on Facebook, and then there’s this.
‘700 Club’ host Pat Robertson was answering some viewer mail on Monday, and he got one from a woman who wanted to know if it was safe for her daughter to post a picture of her unborn child online.
She wanted to know if this would have any harm, spiritually.
And then Roberston went all “American Horror Story” on us.
“There are demons and there are evil people in the world,” he said. “And you post a picture like that, and some cultist gets a hold of it or a coven and they begin muttering curses against an unborn child.”
Facebook and Instagram were down for a brief period of time on Monday, and this was enough to send some people into a panic.
The local 911 dispatcher in the East Bay area of California told the Claycord blog that they received 5 different calls from people complaining about the outage.
“Our lines are [sic] dedicated to handle life and death calls, and even though Facebook is important to a lot of people, it’s not a matter of life and death when it stops working,” the dispatcher said. “One caller even called back to tell me I was being rude because I told her it wasn’t a life threatening emergency.”
The hacker group Lizard Squad initially claimed responsibility for the outage, but Facebook later issued a statement denying the group’s involvement.
“Earlier today many people had trouble accessing Facebook and Instagram,” they said. “This was not the result of a third party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems. We moved quickly to fix the problem, and both services are back to 100% for everyone.”
Fortunately it only lasted an hour, so these 5 terrible people were able to quickly get back to posting selfies, babies and gross food pictures. PHEW.
