Justin Bieber has become the first person in history to get 2 billion views on YouTube according to social media monitoring company Famecount.
It seems only fair that Bieber should be the one to break this record, since his career may never have been possible without YouTube. According to a Billboard profile, the Canadian teen began posting videos of himself singing cover songs at age 12. The videos were discovered by a talent scout, Bieber was signed to Usher’s record label, and four years later he’s so famous that a lock from his formerly floppy hair sold for over $40,000 on eBay earlier this year.
YouTube has long relied on user-generated content, like that of the young Bieber, but that may be changing. On Friday, Google’s video site announced that they would be adding 100 new video channels with original content paid for by YouTube. Celebrities who are already signed on to make videos include Madonna, Amy Poehler, Shaquille O’Neal and Deepak Chopra.

A hoax is spreading like wildfire on Facebook, claiming that hackers are posting pornographic movies on users’ walls which are invisible to the owners of the wall but are visible to friends and family.
You can imagine how that would be pretty embarrassing if it were true. Fortunately, it’s nonsense.
Here’s what a typical message looks like, spread by a Facebook user who thinks they are warning their friends – but really perpetuating the hoax.
ATTENTION FRIENDS! HACKERS ARE DOING DAMAGE AGAIN ON FACEBOOK! PORNOGRAPHIC MOVIES ARE BEING POSTED ON OUR BEHALF ON THE WALLS OF OUR PROFILES! WE DO NOT SEE THEM, BUT OTHER PEOPLE DO, AS IF IT WERE OUR PUBLICATION! SOMETIME EVEN OUR SUPPOSED Comments APPEARS. IF YOU SEE SUCH A THING IN MY HOMEPAGE, ALERT ME AND DO NOT OPEN IT BECAUSE IT IS A VIRUS! ...COPY AND RE POST THIS MESSAGE

This weekend we saw another spate of Facebook messages claiming to link to a BBC News report of the death of Lady Gaga.
Of course, the claims are untrue – and Lady Gaga is still alive.
But that isn’t stopping Facebook scammers from creating money-making websites that claim that the eccentric pop star has been found dead in her hotel room, and tricking Facebook users into sharing the links.

Mila Kunis, the star of movies such as “Black Swan” and “Friends with benefits“, is the latest celebrity to be making the headlines over allegations that hackers broke into her mobile phone and stole nude photos.
In the wake of the story about nude photos of Scarlett Johansson, several gossip websites have reported that they were contacted by people offering to sell them pictures stolen from Mila Kunis.
In Kunis’s case, the images are said to have been taken from her mobile phone, and apparently show her “Friends with benefits” co-star Justin Timberlake lying on a bed topless, wearing some pink underwear on his head, and an image of Mila Kunis in the bath.

The FBI are once again investigating reports that nude photos of a famous celebrity have been leaked onto the web.
Twitter was ablaze earlier today with messages claiming to link to naked pictures of film actress Scarlett Johansson, which were allegedly stolen from her iPhone by a hacker earlier this year.
The photographs may or may not be of Scarlett Johansson, but I would suggest that every hot-blooded male exercises some restraint as it’s extremely possible that cybercriminals might exploit the interest to post dangerous links on the web designed to infect computers or steal information.
Of course, Scarlett Johansson isn’t the first celebrity to have fallen victim to a nude photo hacker.
Nude photos and videos of Vanessa Hudgens, the star of “High School Musical“, surfaced on the net earlier this year, after it was claimed the actress’s Gmail account was hacked.
