The subscription feature is currently only available to a handful of groups. Admins can charge anywhere from $4.99 to $29.99 per month for access.

Monday, June 11th, 2018

Facebook is going to consolidate all of your moments into a single, convenient place that it calls Memories, both on desktop and mobile. This means that you can go back and reflect on all of the memories and such that you've shared with family and friends over the years.

If you use Facebook, then you're likely already familiar with the On This Day feature, which brings up posts, photos, or life events to help remind you of the good or funny times (though it can sometimes backfire).

Google and Facebook are already being accused of violating GDPR laws

Friday, May 25th, 2018

The new GDPR rules have barely been in effect for more than a few hours, but Google and Facebook are already being hit with a complaint for failing to comply with the regulation's requirements. According to privacy group noyb.eu, both companies are engaging in so-called "forced consent," which is the practice of bundling consent into an all-or-nothing package instead of the granular approach to consent required by the GDPR.

GDPR rules stipulate that companies may be fined up to the greater of €20 million or 4% of annual revenue, and that's precisely the amount the complaint is seeking.

That's no coincidence, of course: on Friday, May 25, a sweeping new legislation, which deals with data privacy and how companies handle an individual's personal data, will go into effect in the European Union. The regulation, called the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR for short, grants individuals a series of rights concerning their personal data, and stipulates a number of duties companies have regarding how that data is processed.
