A man named Justin John Bieber is creating quite the stir on Facebook for two reasons:

  1. His name.
  2. The fact that he goes off on Justin Bieber.
FB Profile

A 50-year old man, this Justin Bieber feels as attached to his name as Michael Bolton did on Office Space: he was here first, he thinks the other Justin Bieber is a "punk ass little bandit" and he has no intention of changing it!

We don't approve of some of Justin John's language or reference, but it's better to see a middle-aged man turning away "little girls" than trying to friend them, isn't it?

UPDATE: Apparently this Facebook profile is a fake and the picture is of French computer scientist Michael Xhaard.

Consider yourself on notice, Facebook: Google is coming for you.

The search engine giant has announced plans for its own social network, title "Google+ project." Sum it up for us, please, Google's Vice President of Product Management, Bradley Horowitz:

"In real life, we have walls and windows and I can speak to you knowing who's in the room, but in the online world, you get to a ‘Share' box and you share with the whole world."

Google vs. FB

Okay, that didn't make the concept much clearer.

Jason Valdez, an armed man in Salt Lake City, took a woman hostage and updated friends and family about it on Facebook during a 16-hour standoff.

He made six status updates, posted pictures of himself and the woman (“Got a cute Hostage’ huh,” he wrote), and added at least 12 new friends.

Valdez took the woman hostage Tuesday evening when police tried to serve him with a felony drug warrant after a missed court appearance.

FB Updates

Hey, you gotta pass the time somehow ...

“I’m currently in a standoff … kinda ugly, but ready for whatever,” Valdez first wrote on the social networking site. “I love u guyz and if I don’t make it out of here alive that I’m in a better place and u were all great friends.”

His friends and family responded with more than 100 messages, at least one warning Valdez about police activity outside. Authorities are discussing whether his friends should be charged with obstruction of justice.

As the SWAT team swarmed the room, Valdez shot himself in the chest.

He was in critical condition as of last night ... if that changes, we suspect he will let everyone know on his Wall ASAP, along with how bad the hospital food is.

On one hand, Soulja Boy makes a decent point in a new online rant:

How big of a loser must you be to become someone's friend on Facebook, solely to post hateful messages regarding that individual's work?

On the other hand... well, the rapper goes a bit far in his latest diatribe, using language that would make Tracy Morgan proud and turning the problem of Internet trolls into a race issue. This is what Soulja Boy posted over the weekend:

Soulja Boy Pic

"IM TIRED OF WHITE PEOPLE DOING US LIKE THIS MAN!! THEY TREAT US SO WRONG!! fuck THEM MAN ON GOD!! fu*k THEM FOR LIKING A BLACK MANS FACEBOOK JUST TO TALK shit!! fuck RACIST I HATE YOU

"Maybe I finally said the right shit to get these racist to unlike my page. Fans i'm sorry you had to read this. but we must take a stand. they WILL not treat us like this any longer. I dont give a fuck.

Is Mark Zuckerberg engaged to girlfriend Priscilla Chan? That's the rumor going around - a rumor traced to a comment by none other than Bill Gates.

The Microsoft founder may have just used the wrong word in reference to his fellow computer entrepreneur, but he definitely called her his "fiancee."

In an interview with the Daily Mail (UK), Gates discussed the philanthropic efforts of Zuckerberg, who recently reached out to Gates and his foundation.

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan

Like Gates, Zuckerberg has pledged to give away most of his fortune.

"I didn't say to Mark, 'Give me all your money!' He was predisposed to do it and he came to me seeking advice. His fiancée Priscilla thought about education and he gave money to Newark, New Jersey," Gates said.

The head of the Gates Foundation said, "We did a co-grant so that some of our people who had some expertise in that field could help him out."

It could have been nothing more than a slip of the tongue, saying fiancee instead of girlfriend, but Zuckerberg has been dating Chan since 2003.

The first photos of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, taken about five months after she was tragically shot in the head, have emerged on Facebook.

The images depict a a woman in recovery, smiling and with short, dark hair. They were taken by a professional photographer on May 17 at TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital, a day before Giffords under a cranioplasty.

The picture above was not altered or edited, according to her staff, who said it shows "Gabby has traveled a remarkable distance since Jan. 8."

“This was Mark and Gabby’s decision,” said spokesman CJ Karamargin of the pictures' release. “There is intense interest in the Congresswoman’s appearance and on the threshold of her going to outpatient treatment, we thought this was a good way to satisfy public curiosity.”

Giffords is expected to leave the hospital this month.

The man accused of opening fire on her and her constituents in Arizona has been deemed mentally incompetent.

Some people take Facebook very seriously.

We recently told you about T-Pain's "Like" tattoo, but even he can't hold a candle to YouTube user Suzyj87, who recently videoed the process of getting a "sleeve" style tattoo ... of the photos of her 152 Facebook friends.

Now that's serious loyalty ... or something.

If she gets 50 more friends, will she get 50 more photos tattooed? There's a finite surface area, after all. She explains this conundrum as such:

"Of course I gave it a lot of thought. These are not all my friends. Just the people I care most about," she says of the artistic Facebook mosaic.

"I got their permission and they were proud to be on it. It represents who I am right now and the time we live in. And of course I love the look."

We have to give Suzy87 that much. It does look sort of cool. At least as far as tattoos of your Facebook friends that cover your entire arms go.

Her sister may be the Duchess of Cambridge now, but Pippa Middleton also caught the attention of millions tuning in to the British royal wedding last Friday.

Thanks to her white, body-hugging Alexander McQueen gown, some even say Pippa stole the spotlight from her older sister. We wouldn't go that far, but ...

The fascination with Pippa Middleton, Kate's maid of honor, has even spawned a Facebook page: The unofficial "Pippa Middleton Arse Appreciation Society."

It's been "Liked" by nearly 200,000 people and counting.

  • Pippa Middleton at the Royal Wedding
  • Hot Pippa Middleton Pic

Pippa does look unreal in that dress. Just saying.

Not shockingly, the younger Middleton sister has quickly become one of the U.K.'s hottest bachelorettes, although she may not be that way for much longer.

She brought rumored beau Alex Loudon, a cricket player turned businessman, as her date to the wedding, and the two are reportedly getting very serious.

Regardless, tabloid interest in Pippa's personal life should only increase, thanks to Kate marrying Prince William - and because she's a great catch herself.

"At heart, Pippa is a nice, smart girl who likes to party and have fun," a source told the Daily Mail. Not a lot to dislike about that combination, is there?

Despite losing their appeal, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are STILL going after Mark Zuckerberg, saying he and Facebook ruthlessly defrauded them.

The Winkelevoss twins are not giving up on their claims against Zuckerberg and the social networking site, which they claim was there idea originally.

They point to two damning IMs as proof that Zuck f*%ked them.

Winklevii and Zuck

Zuckerberg and Facebook settled with the genetic freaks for $65 million, but they've been trying to undo the deal, on grounds of fraud, to obtain more.

The Winklevii want a federal appellate court to reexamine their settlement with Facebook, acknowledge that the IMs are proof of fraud and nullify it.

Tyler and Cameron claim Facebook intentionally withheld messages sent by Mark saying, "Yeah, I'm going to f**k them ... probably in the [ear]."

In another IM, Zuckerberg allegedly told a friend:

"But [the twins] made a mistake haha. They asked me to make it for them. So I'm like delaying it so it won't be ready until after the facebook comes out."

Maybe The Social Network was more accurate than we thought ...
