Oh, how you've changed, Mark Zuckerberg

Over the years, the head of Facebook has shaken up his site with various redesigns. Sometimes, it was little things, like being able to "Poke" people or displaying user activity on a "Mini-Feed." And sometimes, it was a big change, like the 2011 introduction of Timeline, which allowed users to post "Life Events" and add large cover photos

What better way to reminisce on all of Facebook's changes than to look at Zuckerberg's own profile evolution?

Throughout it all, he's been a chameleon, tweaking and transforming his page to highlight any and all of Facebook's new features. Here's a walk down memory lane with the many faces of Mark Zuckerberg's profile Read more...

Media juggernauts in today's technology sector don't hold back when it comes to spending top dollars on rising startups.

Facebook in particular has spent a whopping $22 billion-plus on disclosed acquisitions since its inception in 2004WhatsApp, Instagram and 45 other companies are now under Facebook's belt. It didn't take Mark Zuckerberg very long to realize buying other companies is the best way to grow his own.

The folks at Marketo created an infographic comparing the $22 billion-plus sum to the gross domestic products of countries, the net worth of celebrities, the price of making movies and values of professional sports teams. Take a look below: Read more...

The sun is out, the flowers are blooming and you've been working out for months to look your best. You know what that means — it's hoodie season.

At least, it is if you're Mark Zuckerberg, king of hoodies. The Facebook CEO turns 30 years old Wednesday, so we compiled a fashion guide worthy of his reading list

The hoodie is a staple of fashionable techie closets, as necessary to a wardrobe as blue jeans, black turtlenecks and semi-ironic calculator watches. Exotic, mysterious, zippable — hoodies are so in right now. Unfortunately, not many truly understand the subtlety of hoodie fashion. If we've learned anything from Zuckerberg, it's that hoodie wearing isn't all just "zip up when cold" or "unzip when hot." Believing so could be the difference between success or failure in the startup world. Read more...

How the Feed Changed the Way We Consume Content

The RSS feed — or as we now know it, "the feed" — organizes the world into a series of neat, clickable, constantly updating bits of information. But it's a relatively new concept — just 10 short years ago, there was no way to know what a public figure such as Justin Bieber was thinking in real time.

The feed now dominates online content consumption, from the news we read on our mobile devices to the social networks we check constantly throughout the day, as well as the ads that integrate onto those platforms

2013 was undoubtedly the feed's year: Video-sharing app Vine surpassed 40 million registered users, while Twitter topped 200 million. And in-feed advertising became a standard on Facebook, Instagram and even Pinterest. Read more...

Baby photos. News articles. Selfies. Advertisements. Job announcements

It's likely your Facebook News Feed contains some combination of these, if not all of them (and likely other categories, too). That's both the beauty and the curse of News Feed: It provides updates from all aspects of your life in one place, including those you may not care to see.

In March, Facebook announced a News feed redesign. Mark Zuckerberg told press, "What we are trying to give everyone is a copy of the best personalized newspaper in the world." The redesign has since stumbled, but the goal of turning Facebook into a "personalized newspaper" remains strong. And Facebook could use your help Read more...

Social media managers know what’s up — with thousands of fans on a Facebook Page, there’s bound to be at least one who ruins the fun for everyone. He shoots down every post, is the first to call out a typo, and loves incorporating profanities into even his most positive comments.

Add your textbook spammers, angry customers and historically unhappy people to the mix and it’s no wonder someone has to keep an eye on your company’s Facebook Page at all times. It’s easy to consider banning every user who ruffles your feathers, but you should weigh multiple options before planning your attack strategy.

Put on your party hats and string up the banners: Facebook celebrates its 10th birthday in 2014

You'd be hard pressed to find a more popular, yet polarizing, service than Facebook over the last decade. In less than 10 years, Facebook has collected a billion-plus users, hosted a presidential Town Hall, been the topic of a major motion film, and connected people from every corner of the planet. Its global brand recognition may be the best in the tech world, rivaling only Google and Apple, both of which had a substantial head start

And while 2014 is, in all reality, just another year for the social media giant to collect users, data, and revenues, it's also a reminder of how far Facebook has come — and how quickly the tech world evolves Read more...
