Facebook has been ripped several new ones lately over its apparent penchant for revealing too much of exhibitionists' information, destroying bad relationships, costing idiots their jobs, etc.

Apparently, Facebook is now sorry about all that, and will be drastically simplifying its privacy controls. That was the word today from Facebook vice president of product Chris Cox, who announced at TechCrunch Disrupt in New York City that the new settings would be rolled out tomorrow.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also begun flagellating himself publicly, and

has promised that Facebook is working on a "simpler way to control your

information."

Of course, that won't help this lady get her health benefits back.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
