An ill-advised Facebook comment allegedly led to a 30-woman brawl involving baseball bats, a smashed glass candle crudely wielded as a weapon, and resulting in two serious injuries in Sacramento, Calif., this week.

Officer Michele Gigante of the Sacramento Police said a post on one man's Facebook page was the culprit. His wife allegedly wasn't fond of its salacious nature, which apparently instigated (somehow) a multi-woman showdown.

FB fight

Cops claim that Facebook played a role beyond the man flirting with another woman besides his wife. Some participants used FB to organize the fight.

The participants looked "angry and out of breath," according to one eyewitness, who adds that several individuals were hurt after the epic melee.

One imagines that things like this never used to happen. But of course they did. They just didn't benefit from the virtual megaphone and fine organizational possibilities offered to breathlessly angry mobs by Facebook's mere existence.

Thank you, Mark Zuckerberg. Thank you.

Another day, another revealing batch of Rihanna pics.

Posted by the 24-year-old singer herself, no less.

The star showed off pictures from her Hawaiian vacation via Facebook Monday, and in one image, she flings off her white bikini top while standing under a waterfall.

It's Rihanna topless. Further comment unnecessary.

The Battleship actress says she doesn't actively work out, but just has an active lifestyle, swimming, horseback riding, hiking and such whenever she can.

"I'm not excited about how skinny I am, so it wasn't a goal for me or anything," she says of her thin frame. "That was not something I even tried to do."

Anyone out there complaining? No? Okay. Other sexy images include Rih playing with her bikini on the beach and descending into a shark tank. Enjoy.

Facebook has just agreed to a staggering $1 billion acquisition of Instagram - the popular mobile photo editing and sharing site - according to reports.

Twitter exploded with people marveling at the astronomical sale price, joking about hipster filters, and comparing previous photo site acquisitions.

The big question on everyone's minds is why. For Facebook, the short answer is because they can, and it's all about staying current. Instagram is in.

Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom insisted that "Instagram is not going away."

Instagram lets users stylize photos, such as this one of Selena Gomez, on the go.

"We'll be working with Facebook to evolve Instagram and build the network," Systrom said. "We will continue to add new features to the product and find new ways to create a better mobile photos experience for users."

The app will remain in the App Store and on Google Play and users will still be able to share on social networks other than Facebook, he said.

Elsewhere, another 10-figure tech sale was in the works. Rumors surrounding AOL's desire to sell off its patent portfolio have floated for weeks.

Monday, those rumors turned into a very real $1.056B deal with Microsoft.

Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican George Allen are currently running a tight and contentious campaign for Virginia's open seat in the U.S. Senate.

They're both political heavyweights, but right on their collective tail is an insurgent, third-party candidate who's surging in grassroots support.

That candidate is Hank the Cat. Bow down, bitches!

Hank the Cat

The official site of the Hank Senate campaign claimed in a press release Friday that the 9-year-old Maine Coon (52 in human years) has pulled ahead of Kaine.

In Facebook fans, anyway.

Despite entering the race just two months ago, Hank’s Facebook page boasts 14,141 “likes” whereas Kaine, the state's former governor, has 13,913.

Kaine also hasn't converted to Timeline yet, BTW. Way to stay in touch with the people.

Campaign manager Matthew O'Leary said Hank initially ran to expose “the farce that is our political system,” until the movement took on a life of its own.

He may have shot up his daughter’s laptop to send a message, but Tommy Jordan doesn't regret it - and more importantly, he and Hannah Marie have made amends.

Nearly a month after posting his now-infamous video, he spoke on Today about his eight-minute "Facebook parenting" guide and their relationship since.

The video has 10 times more likes than dislikes on YouTube, and he has wide support in THG's poll (below). But Jordan admits he might not do it again.

“A lot of people took eight minutes of my life to judge me, and about 30 seconds of those where I read Hannah’s note to judge her,’’ he told Matt Lauer.

“I have a great daughter. She made a mistake. I made a mistake that day. I stand behind what I did, but the consequences were a lot larger than hers.’’

Asked if he has any regrets, he said, “Considering what’s come of it and the national and almost international conversation that it sparks, no I don’t.’’

But would he do it again? "It would be a tough decision to know what I know now," he paused, then admitted. "It’s brought a lot of stress on my family."

I’m sure I’d have to weigh, ‘Is the international story that seems to be talked about more important than my family’s peace of mind?' So that would be tough."

The latest rumor in the strange saga of Rihanna and Chris Brown comes to us from Ms. Karrueche Tran, his girlfriend, and an interesting remark she wrote on Facebook.

Chris and Karrueche seem on solid ground despite his musical (and purported, but not confirmed, sexual) collaborations with Rihanna. But is there tension brewing?

This weekend, Rihanna Tweeted the following picture with the caption "Ima make u my bitch." Some actually interpreted this as a veiled shot at Karrueche Tran:

  • Rihanna's Rice Cakes
  • Karrueche Pic

In response, or maybe just randomly, Karreuche took to Facebook and made a comment that sure seems like a commentary on Chris' relationship status.

That and the fact that she's got the upper hand. She wrote on Facebook:

"I'm Angelina, You're Jen. C'mon you see where Brad is at."

If that was a diss, it was a decent one. Nice use of celebrity gossip knowledge to make the point that Chris Brown is hers now and imply that he's got no interest in Rih.

What do you think of Karrueche Tran's FB post? Was it in response to Rihanna's rice cake diss? Was Rihanna's Tweet really just about eating rice cakes?

Tommy Jordan, a North Carolina dad, recently taught his teenage daughter the hard way to show some respect - and that nothing on the Internet is really private.

He pulled out a gun and pumped nine bullets into her laptop - on camera.

When her dad discovered a Facebook rant that she thought she had blocked from him, he decided to respond in a way that will certainly never be forgotten.

Jordan, of Albemarle, N.C., posted this video on YouTube, responding to his daughter Hannah's post, in which she complained about having to do chores:

"I'm not your damn slave," Tommy, who works in IT and discovered the post when adding software to her laptop to upgrade it, read from Hannah's post.

"We have a cleaning lady for a reason."

After continuing to read his 15-year-old's missive, he fired bullets into her computer from a .45 handgun. That's one way to get your point across.

Jordan also addresses Hannah on camera in the video, saying that she can clean up the house and get a new computer if she pays for one herself.

Tommy also noted that Hannah must pay him back for the bullets and software he just installed. Ouch. No laws were broken, and there will be no investigation.

Just the same, the father's actions have sparked controversy and discussion, with some finding it way out of line, and others praising his backbone.

"Maybe a few kids can take something away from this," he wrote on YouTube.

"If you're so disrespectful as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you're deserving of some tough love. Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love."

If you up and died, how would people respond online?

What final words would you wish you could've shared?

Thanks to this new Facebook application, you can plan it out. "If I Die" enables you to craft a video or a text message that will be published only after ... you know.

All you have to do is download the app, write or record a farewell, designate one or more "Facebook trustees" and bada-bing. You're prepared if a piano falls on your head.

Hey, death is always right around the corner. Get crackin':

Jon Bon Jovi may be wanted dead or alive ... but he's not the former.

He may sing about goin' down in a blaze of glory, but he has not yet.

We're here all day. Despite rumors that Bon Jovi is dead, we are happy to report that he has not been shot through the heart. He's still living ... and not even on a prayer.

Jon Bon Jovi Lives!!!!

As the rumors of Bon Jovi's death began circulating online last night, the rocker must've heard them, because he posted photo of himself in front of a Christmas tree.

Holding a sign that reads "Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey," with the current date and time, he gave a shout out to his home state while proving he's alive. Classic.

The rumor originated when some lame gossip site reproduced a 2009 L.A. Times story announcing the death of Michael Jackson and just put Jon Bon's name in there.

Bon Jovi's friend, David Bergman, posted the above pic on the band's Facebook page with the caption that Bon Jovi "is alive and well." Death hoax? Foiled, hilariously.

Kim Jong Il died for real though. That happened.
