Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Facebook is Lying but Nobody is Caring wasn't surprising but still made me sigh. (via Vika) If you want to block third-party social media sites from tracking you and use Firefox, consider trying Share Me Not.

On a related note, Alexis Madrigal writes What You Shouldn't Post on Your Facebook Page If You Want a Job at The Atlantic. I try to be conscious of what I put out there, but always appreciate a reminder. (via glad she and her buzz are back!)

Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address on YouTube (via Amber). May he rest in peace.
