Every few months or so, Facebook announces a new milestone figure regarding their user numbers. Most recently, Facebook announced that it now has more than 500 million users around the globe, and all signs point to continued growth (some predict that Facebook could hit 1 billion members within a year).
Although this is great news for Facebook, other recent news highlights a very concerning event in which user data for more than 100 million members was downloaded, packaged in a file, and made available for download to anyone who wants it. Now, before anyone jumps to conclusions, you must know that this user information was not a breach of security, but instead a mass-download of personal information that users had chosen - purposefully or ignorantly - to leave visible to the public.
Many of you are counting down the days until school starts because you are getting a little bored with all the free time you’ve had this summer. Others are counting the days left of summer because you don’t want it to end! Whichever you’re doing, you’re counting too much!
If you’re looking for something to do to pass the time, or if you want to make sure you continue to live every day left of summer to the fullest – don’t miss out on iQ Live – Summer Edition! We’ve been having so much fun checking in with students from around the country and chatting about what we’ve been up to, playing games for some cool prizes, watching viral videos and of course – hanging out with Mr. T (not the real Mr. T - our very own Mike Thatcher)!
iQ Live – Summer Edition is taking place again THIS FRIDAY, JULY 23 @ 4 p.m. Central/ 2 p.m. Pacific.
