Mark Zuckerberg testifies at Congress.

When Mark Zuckerberg came to Congress to testify before the Senate and House of Representatives, it seemed like all of America stopped to take note. It had been three years since Cambridge Analytica used stolen Facebook data, two years since Zuckerberg dismissed the idea that Facebook had swayed the election and just one year after the company admitted that tens of millions of people had been served fake ads during the 2016 presidential election. The future of Facebook and social media in general could be impacted by Zuckerberg's testimony.

Many of the people wanted answers to important questions, like whether Congress would decide to create regulations, protecting data and potentially making it more difficult for Facebook to serve targeted ads.

Smile settings

If you've ever created an avatar or character in a video game, you can't help but like this GIF, in which Mike Tokes added a ruler that regulates Zuckerberg's smile. It makes you think Zuckerberg might actually be a robot, and that everything around you might just be synthetic, and that we might all just be living in the Matrix, and (breathes heavily into a bag) ....

Maybe Myspace Tom is the real success story

Myspace might not have had the long-term success some envisioned in the early days of social media, but it's not all bad for Tom Anderson. At least he didn't have to spend two grinding days in front of Congress, testifying about whether his company should be more heavily regulated moving forward. So, in a way, maybe Myspace Tom is the real success story in all this.
