Despite all the recent hand-wringing about Facebook’s privacy failures and the company’s attempts to simplify privacy controls in response to the uproar over the past month and a half, there has been no visible impact on Facebook itself. In fact, the mont of May was one of the strongest ones ever for Facebook, as measured by net new visitors.
According to comScore, Facebook attracted 130 million unique U.S. visitors in May, 2010, an increase of 8.6 million people. That jump represents the third largest single-month increase in unique visitors since comScore started measuring. Pageviews were up 11 percent in May to 55.5 billion. (mehr bei Techcrunch)

Last October, when Facebook laid out its Platform Roadmap for the next several months, it announced that thedimensions of custom tabs on Facebook Pages would be changing from 760 pixels wide to 520 pixels wide in “late 2009/early 2010.”

If not, they might look broken or poorly designed. (mehr bei Inside Facebook)
While Mark Zuckerberg may have a plan for simplifying Facebook’s privacy controls, apparently the social networking site has still not decided how it’s going to implement location-based features.
During a Q&A session on Facebook’s privacy controls today, CEO Mark Zuckerberg was asked about what role privacy will play in Facebook’s location-based features. His response was twofold: First, he was not prepared to discuss the company’s new location-based features because it has not finished building them yet and, secondly, he admitted that frankly the company doesn’t know what exactly it’s going to do with geolocation yet.

Earlier this week, Mark Zuckerberg took the stage of the D8 Conference to discuss privacy, his role as CEO, and the stupid things he did in college. There were many uncomfortable moments in his Q&A with co-hosts Kara Wisher and Walt Mossberg (it wasn’t pretty), but the oddest moment of the entire interview came from his sweater.
Yes, Mark Zuckerberg’s trademark hoodie stole the show. After Kara Swisher suggested that he take it off, a circular insignia (pictured above) was revealed on the inside of the hoodie. Who knew Facebook’s CEO has been wearing the “Facebook Mission Seal” all this time? (mehr bei Mashable)
