For those interested in the constant fluctuation of billion dollar marketing products, this one will definitely take your fancy. Business tycoons have now branched an incredible stake in Facebook for a minority share. For those not so marketing-minded… Facebook is now worth £32Billion dollars.

FB

 
The ever-growing social network site is now becoming so big that everyone wants a share. Thanks to a cash injection from Goldman Sachs and Digital Sky Technologies for a minority share, the massive online company is now worth £32Billion dollars. After the cash jump, numbers have boosted and it is now confirmed that Facebook is worth double that of Yahoo and roughly the same value as Cadbury owners, Kraft Foods
 
However the social giant is still a long way behind search engine Google, who are estimated at approximately £122Billion. Facebook are catching up quickly though, and I’m sure will be on par with them in the near future. They have already managed to steal most website visits, overtaking Google. It is estimated that Facebook attracted a massive 500million more views than last month alone – showing that Facebook is on the up and not suffering from the draught in cash.
 
The value of Facebook has increased drastically over the passed 5 years, which proceeds to show that more good fortune is to come. With over half a billion users wordwide, Facebook is now a household name, and a sought-after profit maker for those wealthy enough to invest. Microsoft penned a 1.6 percent stake in the giant, which cost £155million – there is no end to the rise in profits!
 

A silly question… do you have Facebook? If so, are you hooked to it?

Best of Both Worlds?0

It would seem that Miley Cyrus, or Hannah Montana, the former Disney golden girl isn’t haven’t such a great time of it lately.

In a resent poll 13% of Americans have voted they wanted to hear and see less of the teenage pop star come actress in 2011. This has come on the back on the bong scandal, which hasn’t seemed to have affected Miley very much as one of her friends was quoted saying “she doesn’t care she has just got on with filming her new film and is moving on with her life.” The aforementioned bong scandal was when a video of Miley smoking from a bong was released. 

Her latest album was less than a success with her single “can’t be tamed” giving her a slag tag with much of the teen age audience which once admired her in Disney’s Hannah Montana the series and the movie. Since she has left them her reputation has gone down as she tired to break free from the image of the “innocent disney girl” but has she gone too far in the opposite direction? 

When you’re a role model to so many young girls, and boys, across the globe you can’t be seen doing “normal teenage things” (in the loosest sence of the phrase) like smoking from a bong. You have to step up and take the responsibility and her rescnt decline in popularity is a reflection on that.

What do you think on this? are you a fan of Miley, leave us a comment!

Is David Beckham heading back to the Premier League?0
By - Posted at 9:06 pm

Many years have passed since David Beckham first came to our attention. Everyone knows him as the good-looking, pure British type that just loves his football, and he is just that. His passion for the sport hasn’t died down, and when other players at his age begin their decisions to retire, David Beckham continue on, without an end in sight.David Beckham

At 35-years-old, Beckham continues to move forward, looking for new challenges. Ever since he started playing football, he was said to be hooked. Beginning his career at a local football club, Brimsdown Rovers, he went on to become player of the year for the club in 1990. It wasn’t long after that, that he moved onto bigger and better things. Most notably his stint at Manchester United, which was a life changing position, and one that gave him spotlight all over the country.

Due to some controversy issues with manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, he left the club in 2003 and joined Spanish giants, Real Madrid. Since then, he has spent his life abroad, and finally settling in the USA, where he now plays for L.A Galaxy. Now with their season at an end, Beckham has spoken of his wish to come and play football back in the UK. He has initially said he would never play for another Premier League team, besides Manchester United, however that rule has seemingly diminished.

With Tottenham struggling to find a permanent man on the right, Harry Redknapp has conscripted his staff to get in touch with L.A Galaxy to discuss him coming to play for them. Redknapp insists that it is not a rush-buy, but that he feels David Beckham could offer a lot to the club, especially in the role of being influential to younger players.

Do you think L.A Galaxy will release one of their star men? Let us know by leaving a comment!

The Great Gatsby – Review0
By - Posted at 9:06 pm

Image of The Great Gatsby front cover

Well today I’m feeling rather tired and lousy because I stayed up until 2am last night finishing a book; The Great Gatsby written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. To be brutally honest, I can’t say for sure whether I thought it was a good book or not. I mean, I had to read it for AS English Literature, but was it my cup of tea?

 
From a literary perspective, it was amazing. The way Fitzgerald can shape his words to put such clear, vivid pictures in your head is miraculous but I do suppose naturally, who else could do a better job than him?
 
He was around in the roaring 20’s, which was ironically partly responsible for the Great Depression (a reference to Grapes of Wrath!), so it was most interesting to get a bit of history in there too. I won’t spoil the book, but the description of death in this book is simply the best I’ve seen; euphemism at it’s greatest. Poor thing.
 
However, it did leave me feeling rather cheated, disheartened and quite angry. I suppose I’m a sucker for it, but why couldn’t it by a happy ending like the Cinderella story or our beloved Three Little Pigs? Why couldn’t Nick wake up and go West with Jordan? Why didn’t Gatsby stop messing around and get off with Daisy? Why was Tom such a berk?
 
I must admit, after reading both Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernières in the past few months, I’ve become rather accustomed to the darker, more depressing side of literature! To think, I complain to my mother that she reads depressing books about love, but damn I’m becoming a clone!
 
Although coming back to reality, all this did make me wonder. By now we’ve seen it in many books, from those on abuse and those on love; it turns out that all this anger, dispute and pain is exactly what makes good literature.. and an even better author. It’s well worth a read. Go buy it. Now.
 
Has anyone else read it? What did you think? Let me know in the comments! smile.gif

Lady Gaga Announces 'Born This Way' Details0
By - Posted at 9:06 pm

Singer and pop icon Lady Gaga has revealed via Twitter upcoming details on her upcoming second studio album entitled ‘Born This Way‘.Lady Gaga - Born This Way

In a much hyped announcement made at midnight on New Years Eve, the star from New York announced the release date of the album, and the date of the première of the first single, along with a brand new photo, shot by artist Nick Knight.

The song will make its debut on February 13th 2011, which is the same night as the 53rd Grammy Awards, leading to speculation that Gaga will perform the song at the ceremony, an event which will definitely be exciting for fans. The album is also now scheduled for a release date of May 23rd 2011, which leaves quite a large gap between the lead single and album, time which will mostly be taken up by Gaga rounding up her huge Monster Ball Tour in North America.

Also on her midnight announcement, Gaga released an photo of her taken by Nick Knight, who she has previously worked with on videos for her Monster Ball tour. The image shows Gaga from behind, wearing nothing but a jacket with the words ‘Born This Way‘, and a picture of a unicorn. You can see the picture on the right. The full photo also exposes Gaga’s bum bum in all of its glory, which is too naughty for this site! Click here to see the full image – warning, the image contains Lady Gaga’s bottom…

Gaga has suffered a slight backlash from a few of her fans, who are complaining that they have been waiting too long for the album, and that May is too long to wait. Click read more for my opinion on this!

Personally, I think people should give her a break! This woman is constantly working, and she’s going to come straight off tour to promoting the album, and I for one cannot wait for ‘Born This Way’
