Earlier this week, Facebook pulled a controversial page calling for a Third Palestinian Intifada after facing intense pressure and criticism from Israeli politicians and organizations like the Anti-Defamation League.

Mark Zuckerberg's Adorable Puppy Gets a Facebook Page

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and world's youngest billionaire, just got a new puppy -- and OMG it's super-cute.

Of course, Zuck wasted no time violating the poor puppy's privacy, posting photos...

Facebook Still Wants to Share Users' Personal Info With Third-Party Developers

In case you missed it, 'The King's Speech' took home top honors at the Academy Awards last night, beating out 'The Social Network,' 'Black Swan' and good taste to win the award for Best Picture.

Facebook Reluctant to Discuss Its Role in Middle East Protests

Just about everyone not named Malcolm Gladwell can agree that Facebook played a pretty integral role in recent protests across the Middle East.
