Once upon a time, there was a small Canadian-based telecommunication company that mesmerized the entire world, growing and innovating at an unprecedented pace. The Prince Charming-like...

Facebook and the advent of the smartphone have completely changed the way we communicate with friends.

Party invites, and in extreme cases, even regular hangouts with friends are organized... through Facebook events. “Remembering” birthdays has never been easier thanks to Facebook’s reminders. We now know exactly what everyone is up to, whether they are close friends or that p...
