Stupid, ridiculous, and yet, interesting technology.
You can now send pages to Facebook, Twitter, the iOS email app, and Google +. A very nice update, but I would still like a Reader-like feature, the way Safari does.
It has been more than three years since Ars first started covering Facebook’s inability to remove “deleted” photos from its servers, but this particular saga appears to be coming to an end. The company told Ars that its new photo storage systems are in place and are now deleting photos within a reasonable period of time, which we were able to independently confirm.
Then again, if the photo is not the kind of photo you would like to stay there forever, you shouldn’t put it there in the first place.
