Nothing goes together like "fact checking" and "Tucker Carlson," right?

Facebook has a new fact-checking partner, Axios first reported Thursday: CheckYourFact.com, the fact-checking arm of The Daily Caller, a right-wing website founded by conspiracy theorist peddler Tucker Carlson.

CheckYourFact.com describes itself as "editorially independent" from The Daily Caller. Its funding comes from The Daily Caller's operating budget, ad revenue, and from a grant that's ultimately funded by conservative political groups, according to Media Matters, a watchdog organization of conservative media.  Read more...

Instagram might be changing up one of the most fundamental parts of its service: likes.

New screenshots suggest the company is testing a way to hide like counts in Instagram posts. Images uncovered by researcher Jane Manchun Wong reveal Instagram feed posts that no longer show exact like counts. Instead, you see that a post was liked by a few named handles "and others."

"We want your followers to focus on what you share, not how many likes your posts get," Instagram says in an in-app message explaining the change. "During this test, only the person who shared a post will see the total number of likes it gets." Read more...

Once you've binge-watched enough Netflix shows, you start to see a pattern in the characters you get invested in. You might even notice that certain types of romances have you hitting the "Next Episode" button faster than you can say "I ship it." 

Even if you don't actually read fanfiction in which romantic tropes are clearly defined and amped up to 11 (just check any of the tags on AO3.org or Fanfiction.net), there's at least one fictional dynamic that hits ya right in the feels, every time. 

Enter the latest meme going around Twitter, which has artists drawing visual depictions of their favorite ships. Would you like a scoop of some unspoken mutual pining? How about a helping of rivals who actually admire each other? Or, my personal favorite, a cup of punlord versus someone who pretends to hate their puns but secretly loves them?   Read more...

Good news, everyone: The homeless man whose pet rat was stolen has been reunited with his beloved fur baby!

Chris and Lucy are inseparable. The pair are often spotted around Sydney, Australia — while Chris chats with passerby, Lucy snacks on vegetables and naps. But on Apr. 6, Chris left Lucy on a milk crate while he used a nearby restroom. When he returned, Lucy was gone. 

A heartbreaking photo of a devastated Chris sitting on the street without Lucy was posted across social media. 

"My pet rat Lucy was stolen on Saturday," his sign read. "Lucy is black and white with a bite of brown." 

In a screenshot of an anonymous Facebook post posted to the subreddit r/trashy, a passerby said they were "genuinely distressed" to see Chris without Lucy.  Read more...

It's not every day when a tech company recommends you check out its rival's product. But Google is being forced to do just that in Europe.

To comply with an EU antitrust ruling, the tech giant will show Android users alternative browser and search engine apps on Google Play. The store will serve up two pop-ups: one for search apps, the other for browsers. For each category, users will see a list of the top five apps.

Google's blog post on the upcoming update includes an example of what the pop-ups will look like. The image shows Google search and Google Chrome at the top of each list, followed by rival products such as Mozilla's Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and DuckDuck Go. However, the actual app recommendations will be shown in random order, and will vary depending on the country, the company said. Read more...

After multiple years of marriage, you have to start making a special effort to keep the fire burning and show each other that you’re just as deeply in love as you were when you first met. What better way to do that than becoming an expert at thoughtful gift-giving for anniversaries, holidays, or just out-of-the-blue occasions. 

This can be easier said than done, though, because it requires you to know your spouse on another level — and that requires you to do your research. 

When it comes to shopping specifically for your wife, you have to take into consideration the type of woman she is. What are her hobbies? What gets her excited? What are her passions?  Read more...

Welp, it looks like millions of Instagram accounts were left out in the open for Facebook employees to see. 

A full month after Facebook admitted it mistakenly stored hundreds of million of passwords in plaintext where employees could see them, the company quietly added a significant update: that millions of Instagram passwords were also affected.

"Since this post was published, we discovered additional logs of Instagram passwords being stored in a readable format," Facebook wrote. "We now estimate that this issue impacted millions of Instagram users. We will be notifying these users as we did the others. Our investigation has determined that these stored passwords were not internally abused or improperly accessed." Read more...

All of the advancements in TV technology are about one goal — total immersion. Gamers always look for the best gaming TVs to help them feel like they're in the middle of an actual battle. Or maybe you're just obsessed with Beyoncé's new Netflix documentary and you want to experience Queen Bey in all her regal glory. 

If immersion is what you desire, then you need to embrace this Samsung 4K TV deal that's proud of its curves.

Check out the latest TV trend with a sale on the Samsung 65-inch curved 4K TV for just $679.99 at Walmart. That equals a $720 discount or over half off the original price. If you have a little less space to work with, the 55-inch version is available for just $527.99, although the savings are not as eye-popping as the larger model. Read more...

Spring time is always the best time for deals on video games. For instance, you can get Overwatch: Legendary Edition for just $17.99 or Assassin's Creed Odyssey for $19.99. But gaming is always best with a friend by your side, so it might be time to pick up an extra controller. 

Thankfully, Amazon is having a fire sale on the popular Xbox One controller

You can get a white Xbox One wireless controller for just $36.94 at Amazon. That's $23 cheaper than the original price, and most retailers such as Best Buy only have it as low as $49.99. Keep in mind that this deal only applies to the white model, but you can get a black controller for $43 if that better fits your gaming aesthetics. You will also need to add the controller to your shopping cart to see the discount first. Read more...

Donald Trump may be a Game of Thrones fan, but the feeling isn't necessarily mutual.

On Thursday, after the president tweeted yet another bizarre reference to the HBO show ahead of the Mueller report drop, the network requested he stop using the show for his own personal agenda.

An HBO rep told Mashable, "Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes."

President Donald Trump’s official Facebook page shared photos of an event organized by Russian trolls, according to a redacted version of special counsel Robert Muieller’s report that was released on Thursday.

Mueller’s report on the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election shows that an Internet Research Agency-controlled Facebook account boasted that Donald Trump’s official Facebook page shared photos from an event it organized.

“Mr. Trump posted about our event in Miami!” wrote the IRA-run account in a private message to a U.S. Tea Party activist. “This is great!" Read more...

There is nothing more tender than feeding a bird directly from your own hand.

Every once in a while, nature blesses you with the opportunity. Take a look at this man, Brent, who approached a hungry hummingbird last month in a blooming backyard in San Jose, California, and fed it directly from his hand.

This is peak kindness, everyone. The closing smile is the best part. Read more...

Espionage it for the 'gram!

During an address at Auburn University in Alabama, CIA Director Gina Haspel unveiled some de-classified information about the CIA's next big move: it's launching an Instagram page.

Haspel clued the audience into the agency's decision while talking about the social media savvy of new recruits, as well as transparency and the challenges of an agency devoted to secrets communicating its work to the public.

"Just to talk a moment about transparency, of course CIA does have a Twitter account," Haspel said. "Our office of public affairs is getting ready to launch our Instagram account." Read more...

We are a generation obsessed with intruder movies and crime shows. The shitty Criminal Minds spinoffs and remakes of The Strangers are the lions and we are the sheep.

But the infatuation with fiction break-ins isn't so fun when you're home alone. 

A home security system from Simplisafe can help you sleep better, with entry and motion sensors, glassbreak detection, and video security all working to protect your home. Through April 23, you can grab one for 15% off and get a free security camera. That's up to $171 in savings.

If nothing else, maybe you can finally catch the person stealing your Amazon packages. Read more...

The air is getting warmer and the daylight is sticking around longer. We can taste the sweet signs of summer quickly approaching. You might be ready to get outside and capture the newly bloomed trees on a drone or watch nature in a more analog way through binoculars. No matter your summer hobby, your home could probably use a couple of upgrades for the season.

Right now Walmart is offering up to 35% off outdoor items such as grills, patio furniture, pools, home improvement tools, and more.

Here's a sample of what's included in the sale:

Weber Spirit II E-310 propane gas grill — Save $50

Weber is one of the top names in grilling, so when you can score a deal, we suggest you jump on it. This model has a total cooking area of 529 square inches and three stainless steel burners — it's big enough to cook an entire meal on its porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates. The grill also has two side tables, one of which folds down, and six hooks for cooking tools. The Weber Spirit II E-310 is listed for $499, but during this sale you can get the grill for $449. Check out the other grills on sale here. Read more...

Cable who? Streaming services are the move to get live channels for cheap, but there's one problem: When you're on a budget, $45/month still isn't very reasonable.

Sling TV is here to say you're not doomed to rewatch whatever's on Netflix for the rest of your life. Usually $20/month, it's one of the best streaming services out there — and now it's even cheaper. For a limited time, Sling is offering 40% off three-month subscriptions, making each month just $15. That's three months of Sling for the price of a single month of FuboTV or Hulu with Live TV.

(This deal was around at the beginning of March, and now it's back. Take advantage this time.) Read more...

Robert Mueller's highly anticipated report is finally public, but it's littered with redactions from Attorney General William Barr that are unexpectedly labeled, "Harm to Ongoing Matter."

People anticipated there could be some heavy redactions, but after the lengthy report was published, it became apparent that dozens of lines, and even entire pages, were blacked out with the words "Harm to Ongoing Matter" or HOM for short.

After scrolling through the report and seeing the phrase used over and over again, people couldn't resist calling out the overuse, and Twitter turned into a trove of "HOM" jokes. Read more...

Public displays of Nazi imagery are illegal in Germany; yet, that hasn’t stopped far-right  ideologists from spreading swastikas and other Nazi propaganda on WhatsApp.

A new report from BuzzFeed News shows that WhatsApp users in Germany are successfully spreading Nazi imagery on the app. Even worse, WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, isn’t taking any action to stop it.

According to the report, BuzzFeed looked at nearly a dozen WhatsApp groups, some with names such as "Ku Klux Klan International,” and found Nazi slogans, antisemitic imagery, and propaganda “glorifying” Adolf Hitler. The groups also contained violent rhetoric aimed at immigrants and leftists.  Read more...
