Until now, it hasn't been easy to choose exactly what you see in your News Feed. Maybe you don't want to see every time your brother plays a game on Facebook, for example. Or maybe you'd like to see more stories from your best friends, and fewer from your coworkers.
Ho, hum. Another actress gets "hacked," and nude photos "leaked." I don't buy it.
In Hollywood, there's no such thing as bad publicity, especially when there's nudity involved. Naked pictures and videos have given incredible boosts to the careers of Paris Hilton, Vanessa Hudgens, Rihanna, etc. They always act shocked that such pictures got out there, and yet somehow famous people who need publicity keep taking pictures of themselves and carrying them around on cell phones that can easily be lost, stolen or hacked.
You'll notice that the pictures are always flattering, rarely too revealing and almost never embarrassing.
They get everyone on the Internet talking about the subject matter. They get all the gossip rags talking.
I think these things are almost always deliberately staged, and careful orchestrated. Especially in this case. You'll notice that the body parts carefully revealed are the same body parts carefully revealed on the cover of Vanity Fair and in a few movies.
It seems to me that a huge number of actresses take such photos and place them in hackable locations knowing that the resulting publicity will be a huge career boost.
What do you think?

The ELECTRIFY’s premium 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and auto photo-enhancing software will allow customers to leave their camera at home and still capture incredible photos and videos. The device also features a front-facing camera for video chat on the go. Customers can take and store tons of photos and videos with 16GB of memory on-board that can be expanded to 48GB with a 32GB memory card purchase.
With Motorola’s exclusive webtop application, customers can expand ELECTRIFY’s power to include a larger screen and full keyboard for amazing functionality and productivity. Plug ELECTRIFY into the Motorola HD Station* and connect to an HD monitor to launch a full Firefox 4.0 browser, simultaneously surf the web, stream music, and run useful apps. Customers will have instant access to personal and corporate e-mails and will be able to download photos and videos in a flash on U.S. Cellular’s high-speed nationwide network, which has the highest call quality and network satisfaction of any national carrier.

Points can be used for new phones faster, additional lines, devices, accessories and ringtones. Several of U.S. Cellular’s value-packed national plans are a perfect fit for smartphone customers. The $79.99 Primary Plus Plan is the best value in wireless and offers 5GB of data with unlimited text, picture and video messaging. The plan also comes with 450 voice minutes, free incoming calls, free nights and weekends and free mobile-to-mobile calls. A family of four who switches to U.S. Cellular can save more than $1,000 a year with the company’s National Premium Plus family plan.
