Deputy AG Rosenstein calls on Big Tech to protect users

Deputy AG Rosenstein calls on Big Tech to protect usersDeputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says tech companies need to keep consumers safe, while also providing a way for police to break through their systems’ encryptions. Technology companies need to stop putting profits and growth over the safety and security of their customers. “Technology is advancing at a speed and volume that exceeds the capacity of most people to comprehend the accompanying risks, let alone to protect against them,” Rosenstein said in his speech.

Some Facebook users are seeing a rocket icon in their app. Here's what it does

Some Facebook users are seeing a rocket icon in their app. Here's what it doesIn recent weeks, some users have started noticing a rocket-shaped icon in their Facebook mobile app.  The icon, positioned right next to the main news feed icon, gives you a different type of news feed, one which displays popular posts from people and pages that you haven't befriended or liked.  SEE ALSO: Facebook's new emoji are finally available to everyone I've had the new feature on my Android phone for at least three weeks now, though it tends to disappear and reappear every now and then. (I’m based in Croatia, but there are also reports of users seeing the new icon in the UK.) The rocket feed offers a great deal of local content, so it's possible that it's showing posts that are popular near my geographical location. However, I'm also seeing some posts that are relevant to my interests, so it might not be completely disassociated from my likes/friends.  Most of the posts I'm seeing in the new feed are from pages (some of which I've liked), and some are from users that aren't my friends. Image: Stan Schroeder/Mashable The new feed seems to be remarkably similar to Instagram's Explore tab, which shows you posts that the company's algorithms have determined to be relevant to your interests. 
UPDATE: April 3, 2017, 2 p.m. CEST A reader (thanks, Petar) sent us a few screenshots of the new feature as seen on the iPhone, where it is slightly different. Here, the new feed (labeled "Explore") has more of a magazine vibe to it, with two news items laid out side by side.  The new Explore feed looks a little different on the iPhone. Image: Petar Zivkovic This isn't the first time Facebook is testing a different type of news feed on a (typically small) subset of its users. For example, in April 2016 we've seen a new style of news feed which shows stories clustered around certain topics. 
Mashable has contacted Facebook for more details on this new feature and will update the post when we hear back from them.  WATCH: Check out WhatsApp's new Statuses

Justin Trudeau is setting social media on fire. Again.

Twitter Users Skewer Donald Trump For Skipping The Signing Of Executive Orders

Donald Trump’s disappearing act from the Oval Office on Friday did not go unnoticed on Twitter.

After the president walked out without signing two executive orders on trade policies that he’d just promoted to the media, BuzzFeed editor Jesse McLaren reimagined the awkward incident as the closing credits from HBO’s political comedy “Veep.”

Other users, meanwhile, likened it to a scene from “The Office” and poked fun at the reaction of Vice President Mike Pence.

Twitter Users Roast FBI Over Its MS Paint-Style Holiday Tweet

The FBI’s “Happy Holidays” tweet brought plenty of seasonal cheer over the weekend, but maybe not in the way the agency intended.

Twitter users couldn’t resist poking fun at the law enforcement agency after it posted this MS-Paint-style snowman graphic Saturday alongside its festive message:

Dozens of tweeters piled in to claim that the bureau had committed a “graphic design crime.” One person even called for agents to “arrest themselves for this card.”

Some critics mockingly posted their own equally amateur-looking greetings pictures. Others used the post as an opportunity to attack the FBI over allegations that it had played a role in President-elect Donald Trump’s election win, which have resulted in a lawsuit against the agency.

Here are some of the most popular responses we’ve seen so far:

‘Hamilton’ Boos Prompts Twitter Users To #NameAPenceMusical

Twitter users are imagining what could be Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s favorite musicals, following his eventful evening watching “Hamilton.”

The Indiana governor was widely booed on entering the Richard Rogers Theater in New York City on Friday night, and the Broadway show’s cast addressed him with a powerful message as he later left.
