Chrome extension Data Selfie analyzes your Facebook usage
Give it a whirl and see what companies can learn about you via the social network. Data Selfie stores everything locally and doesn’t share it with anyone (though obviously Facebook is tracking it).
When you install the Data Selfie Chrome Extension, it will run in the background as you use Facebook on your desktop. Data Selfie will record your active and passive activity. The extension will record: clicks on likes in your newsfeed, clicks on newsfeed links to external sites, duration spent on different posts and the specifics of those posts (authors, images and text) in your newsfeed, anything you type, and time spent on Facebook overall. The more you use Facebook the more data is recorded. You can look at the Data Selfie dashboard and get a sense of what Facebook could know about your personality.

Milo Yiannopoulos had a pretty rough Presidents Day
Milo had the worst Presidents’ Day.
Milo is known for "provocative" attacks against trans people, feminism and "P.C. culture". He's an utter dickwad who masks inciting anger behind a mask of free speech.
This week he's lost his Simon & Schuster book deal after video surfaced suggesting Milo was defending and advocating for sexual relationships between 13-year-olds and adults. Also on Monday, the Conservative Political Action Conference rescinded an invitation for Yiannopoulos to speak at its conference this week. Additionally, Breitbart staffers reportedly threatened to quit if Yiannopoulos weren't fired.
Sir David Attenborough to present Blue Planet sequel – BBC News
The sequel to 2001’s ocean series is due to be shown later this year on BBC One.
If Planet Earth II was the best thing that happened to you in 2016 then I have some good news… Sir David Attenborough will present the sequel to 2001's The Blue Planet.
The seven-part series, airing later this year, will highlight recent scientific discoveries and new filming techniques. Filming innovations include "tow cams" that can capture predatory fish and dolphins head-on, suction cams which attach to the back of whale sharks and orcas for a creature's-eye view, and a probe camera that can record miniature marine life.
Trump called the U.S. media the enemy of the American people this afternoon. Oh… but he deleted the tweet… only to replace it with a nearly identify tweet that only removed the work "SICK!"
I have no idea why it was OK without "SICK!" but appropriate without it but it is just more of his alarming anti-media rhetoric.
Trump's words recall similar sentiments from Nixon, but at least he only said them behind closed doors:
December 1972 tape: Nixon told Kissinger, “The press is the enemy, the establishment is the enemy, the professors are the enemy."
