The ubiquitous social networking service has changed the default email on the profiles of all its user accounts to facebook.com addresses.
In an apparent attempt to spur greater use of its messaging service, Facebook has changed the default email accounts of all its users to facebook.com email addresses, NPR and Forbes reported Monday. Facebook launched its email-compatible messaging service, which assigned all account holders new facebook.com email addresses, in November 2010. Though expected in some corners to establish Facebook as a major player in the free email market—employees reportedly referred to the new messaging system as "the GMail killer" when it was launched—the Wall Street Journal notes that providers such as Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft continue to dominate the space. What happens when external email comes to your Facebook.com account Email sent to your …

The social-networking site is apparently mulling over the idea.
Facebook is developing technology that would allow those under the age of 13 to access the site under parental supervision, a move that could help bring in a sea of new users for revenue but that could also increase privacy concerns, according to a report in Monday's Wall Street Journal. The technology being tested would allow children's accounts to be tied to their parents' accounts so that parents would decide whom their children could "friend." New kid-friendly features also could allow Facebook and its partners to bill parents for games and other entertainment accessed by their kids. Currently, Facebook bans those under the age of 13. But several studies show that many children use Facebook despite the ban, often with their parents' …

An email was sent out by Paxon Hollow Middle School Principal Steve Subers about a potential Facebook predator.
BROOMALL–An email was recently sent out by Paxon Hollow Middle School Principal Steve Subers about a possible child predator on Facebook who is already listed as a "friend" on several middle school students' profiles. The email was sent out via Edline–a Learning Community Management System that many schools use for school and class organization online–to parents warning them of the possible predator. In the email, Subers states he received information from the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) of Delaware County's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force about the possible predator on Facebook. According to Subers, "Several children from Paxon Hollow have been identified as being 'friends' with this individual. The list has grown …

FaceGlat.com offers separated sex browsing for Orthodox Jews.
A new website sells itself as an alternative to Facebook for Jewish people who might feel the popular social networking site contains inappropriate content. Dividing web browsing by sex to conform with Orthodox Jewish observance, FaceGlat.com was launched earlier in September by Yaakov Swisa, a 25-year-old Israeli interested in breaching the digital divide. The site, as described by Worldcrunch.com, includes common Facebook features such as friending, posting photos and commenting, while infusing Orthodox traditions—sexes are separate, indecent photos are banned and coarse language is monitored. The name was formed by combining the term that describes a heightened level of Jewish dietary practicies ("glatt" kosher) with the iconic Facebook…
