White House welcomes Facebook move to block private gun sales | Reuters

WASHINGTON The Obama administration on Monday welcomed Facebook Inc's move last week to prohibit users from using its services to coordinate person-to-person private sales of firearms. "Obviously, we welcome steps from private entities like Facebook," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at a press briefing, following Facebook's announcement on Friday. Earnest would not comment on whether anyone in the administration had sought such a decision by Facebook, but he said some companies are interested in preventing individuals from circumventing background checks via Internet sales. #social media #facebook #United States #Crime #Gun control

Plaintiffs' lawyers wary of taking on Flint water scandal | Reuters

The water scandal in Flint, Michigan has many of the ingredients for a mass, class-action lawsuit: danger signs that may have been ignored, many thousands of potential victims, the possibility of lifelong health problems, and the alleged systemic failure of people in charge. Even consumer activist Erin Brockovich, the main subject of a 2000 movie named after her, has drawn attention to Flint's plight on her Facebook page and in public appearances. But big-name, national plaintiffs' firms have yet to jump into the fray in Flint, which has a population of about 100,000. #social media #United States #Europe #markets #Entertainment #publishing #Pollution
