Is Frances Bean Cobain engaged?

The 19-year-old daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain has been dating Isaiah Silva for more than a year. He's in an L.A.-based band, the Rambles.

The engagement rumors started after both quietly changed their Facebook relationship status to engaged a few weeks ago, according to the OC Weekly. Hooray!

A source confirms their happy news of Cobain's engagement to People, as well. However, they have since changed their statuses back, so ... that's something.

Another source tells Us the engagement is still on, though. So who knows.

According to the report, the couple both use fake names on Facebook – she goes by Frances Rachel Leigh Cook, while he uses Isaiah David Berkowitz-Cusack.

Their Facebook pages show comments that hint at an engagement.

"Getting to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend makes me the luckiest woman in the world," Frances Bean Cobain wrote at one point of Isaiah Silva.

Cobain, who was just 20 months old when she lost her dad, has had a whirlwind of an upbringing to say the least. Here's hoping she's happy, engaged or not.

Facebook is very, very sorry.

The company has issued an apology to Courtney Stodden and reinstated her access after it had denied it for "inappropriate sexual conduct," a fact that became public once her mother said Courtney is too sexy for Mark Zuckerberg's creation.

"This page was removed in error and has been restored," Facebook said in a statement to E! News. "We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."

Inconvenience?!? The situation gave Stodden's mom yet another chance to make headlines. She'll probably send Facebook a muffin basket.

"We're happy that it was finally addressed, as I'm sure many others have dealt with similar abuse and didn't know they could do anything about it," Keller says, once again comparing this incident to actual bullying: "Putting a stop to cyber bullying is something Courtney is very involved in. She's happy something was done!"

Given her massive fan base and given that she is seemingly everywhere, it's not too big of a shock that Lady Gaga would be the subject of a celebrity death hoax.

However, for the same reasons, it was easy to establish that this was not the case, unlike with someone who's a little more off the radar (say, Spencer Pratt).

An online scam claims Lady Gaga was found dead in a hotel room. Not the case, but at least the hoax-spreaders went for the traditional celebrity die-off situation.

Gaga Goes Gaga

Some enterprising cyber-criminals are, for some reason, spreading the following headline via Facebook: "BREAKING: Lady Gaga Found Dead in Hotel Room."

It links to a BBC News story and a description reading "This is the most awful day in US history." If you click the link, you end up on a fake BBC spam site.

We got out of there real quick, but the bottom line is that Facebook scammers are trying to pilfer you to "Like" stuff and earn a commission. Simply pathetic.

Mother Monster is alive and well, we assure you - the singer was seen cheering on her hometown New York Giants at stupidly-named MetLife Stadium Monday.

New York won, 28-16, as St. Louis may suck more than Facebook spammers.

Can you really ban students and teachers from being Facebook friends?

We'll soon find out in Missouri. According to Missouri Senate Bill 54, which goes into effect on August 28, any social networking - including, but not limited to, Facebook - between teachers and students is prohibited.

It’s all part of an effort to “more clearly define teacher-student boundaries.”

FB Lettering

However, KSPR reports that it’s only direct social media contact that’s prohibited by Missouri's new law; teachers are still allowed to create Facebook pages where all students have direct access to the teacher in a more public setting.

Inappropriate contact between students and teachers is the root of the bill.

Lady Gaga may be the highest-earning, top-selling and best-known woman in popular music today, but Rihanna has more "Likes" on Facebook.

This week, Rihanna accumulated enough Facebook fans to surpass Gaga and claim the throne as the platform's top ranking female celebrity.

According to their Facebook stats, as of Saturday, Rihanna had 40,699,853 likes, and Lady Gaga had 40,611,908, giving RiRi a slight lead.

Of course, Gaga has her by close to five million fans on Twitter, so Rihanna can't lay claim to being the queen of all social media just yet.

Shakira is the diva with the third most Facebook followers. Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Shakira hold the No. 5, 6, and 8 positions overall.

Three men make the top 10: Eminem (No. 3, 43,367,713 likes), Michael Jackson (No. 7, 38,069,882), and Justin Bieber (No. 10, 33,035,903).

Even a Gold medalist can be a Belieber.

Upon winning the Best Female Athlete at the ESPY Awards last night for the second consecutive year, skier Lindsey Vonn took to the stage, thanked ESPN, her husband and her fans... and then asked Justin Bieber if he'd take a photo with her for Facebook.

The singer obviously obliged, as you can see HERE. Check out the speech below.

The roller coaster ride that is Weston Cage's life continues.

Nic's son made a couple of big announcements Wednesday:

  1. His wife, Nikki Williams, is pregnant with his child!
  2. He's filing for divorce.

Weston Cage, who has only been married since April, went to his Facebook page to break the news, saying, "Made my choice. getting divorced."

Their joint domestic violence arrest over the weekend may have factored into his decision somewhat. As for the whole pregnancy thing ...

Weston believes the news only backs his claim that he never laid a hand on Nikki before the two were both arrested following the melee.

Cage wrote, "Never hit my wife. why would i start abusing after she was positive after taking a pregnant-c test." That's quite the reveal.

Weston then added a cryptic message: "Have fun killing my child Breyan Prescott." Hopefully he gets the help he needs, and quickly.

With the tease from Mark Zuckerberg that he would "launch something awesome" at 1 p.m. EST, Facebook users were introduced to a few new features today.

Chief among them is what Zuckerberg referred to as "video calling" during an announcement from Palo Alto. The chat system will combine with Skype to work as an application within Facebook; there won't be any separate download required.

FB Lettering

Instead, you can just click the button on a friend's profile page and - presto! - a video call is initiated.

Not exactly ground-breaking, we know. But Facebook must soon compete with Google+, which has already announced its own video chatting service.

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.
