Pandora gets sued, Facebook Upgrades (again), and Twitter makes some gas money

Good Morning Crime Fighters!

(side note: don’t know why I keep saying that, but we’re gonna roll with it)

I apologize for not keeping up with my posts. It’s been hectic the past couple weeks and it’s only gonna get more hectic until May with graduation only 3 weeks away. But a lot has happened in the world of Social Media; Lawsuits against Pandora, a new Facebook ‘broad category’ targeting tool, and the possibility of Twitter implementing advertisements soon.

Here are some links that I will hopefully discuss soon when time permits.
