Why Do So Many Sites Force Use To Login Using Facebook?

2013-02-08 by EPR Staff

This question is being asked a lot lately, as more sites and apps begin requiring the sharing of Facebook or Twitter information for login. While it used to be that you could choose to use this service and so socialize your experience, and otherwise do a regular registration, that is becoming less common by the day.

Time passed by and on January 17th the site was... Read More >

message Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook for $100

What did you answer? It doesn't matter. Facebook wants you to pay no less than $100 to message Mark Zuckerberg, at least in areas where Facebook is experimenting with this feature. Facebook is testing out paid messages, and according to CNN money, it will charge you no less than $100 to message Mark Zuckerberg.
