    (CNN)That awkward moment when you agree with Joe Rogan and Mark Zuckerberg that you might be annoying the love of your life? Dean ObeidallahThat's what happened to me when comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan had a three-hour interview with Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the latest episode of his podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience." No, Rogan and Zuckerberg didn't mention me or my fiancée by name. But they did complain that their wives interrupt them when they are working from home. Rogan broached the issue by mentioning "a big pushback now about people going to the office, rather than working from home." A lot of companies have been tightening their policies about working from home, including Apple, which made headlines recently when its employees signed a petition opposing a new plan requiring them to return to the office three days a week. In response, Zuckerberg noted how "our company's actually pretty forward-leaning on remote work," explaining that there are some types of work that "you can do pretty well from a lot of different places." Zuckerberg expressed...
    (CNN)In a rare and lengthy interview, Mark Zuckerberg spoke with controversial comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan about Meta's plans to release a new virtual-reality headset, his newfound love of jiu-jitsu and his company's decision to limit the reach of an article about Hunter Biden that came out in the final weeks leading up to the 2020 election.In the three-hour chat with "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast, Zuckerberg detailed his company's plans to release a new virtual-reality headset in October. Zuckerberg said the forthcoming headset will have "a few big features," including eye- and face-tracking so that people's VR avatars can accurately mimic their facial expressions and users can feel as if their avatar is looking directly at another person's avatar in VR social apps. The company's most recent VR headset, Quest 2, was released in October 2020. The release of the interview with Rogan comes a week after Zuckerberg was widely criticized online for the simplicity of his avatar in Horizon Worlds, which is Meta's flagship social VR app. (Zuckerberg later admitted the image he shared was "pretty basic.")...

    New York (CNN)Mark Zuckerberg, in response to a torrent of critical memes mocking the graphics of Meta's newest project, has heard his critics -- and changed his selfie.Zuckerberg debuted Horizon Worlds, a virtual reality social app, in France and Spain earlier this week, sharing a somewhat flat, goofy digital avatar in front of an animated Eiffel Tower and la Sagrada Família. Facebook parent posts first revenue decline as a public companyThe internet immediately jumped in, mocking what many users viewed as (hopefully) preliminary graphics for a venture that Meta has spent at least $10 billion in the last year. New York Times tech columnist Kevin Roose compared the graphics to "worse than a 2008 Wii game" on Twitter. Slate used the term "buttcheeks." Twitter was less kind: "eye-gougingly ugly" and "an international laughing stock" popping up. Many compared it to early 90's graphics and pointed out how lifeless and childish the Zuckerberg selfie looked. It quickly won the designation "dead eyes."

    Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks at Georgetown University in Washington on Oct. 17, 2019.Andrew Caballero-Reynolds | AFP | Getty Images Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on the company's second-quarter earnings call Wednesday that the economy seems to be in a downturn that will hurt digital advertising, so the Facebook parent company must do more with less. The comments came after Meta, which runs advertising-dependent social networks Facebook and Instagram, disclosed second-quarter earnings and revenue that came in below analysts' estimates. Social media rivals Snap and Twitter reported lower-than-expected quarterly results last week. "Engagement trends on Facebook have generally been stronger than we anticipated and strong Reels growth is continuing to drive engagement across Facebook and Instagram," Zuckerberg said on a conference call with analysts. "That said, we seem to have entered an economic downturn that will have a broad impact on the digital advertising business. It's always hard to predict how deep or how long these cycles will be, but I'd say that the situation seems worse than it did a quarter ago." Earlier on Wednesday the U.S....

    Meta Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg announced on Wednesday that she will be leaving the Facebook parent company after 14 years. In a long statement on her Facebook page, Sandberg expressed appreciation for Meta co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg bringing her on board and entrusting her to run Facebook. She wrote: When I was considering joining Facebook, my late husband, Dave, counseled me not to jump in and immediately try to resolve every substantive issue with Mark, as we would face so many over time. Instead, I should set up the right process with him. So, on the way in, I asked Mark for three things – that we would sit next to each other, that he would meet with me one-on-one every week, and that in those meetings he would give me honest feedback when he thought I messed something up. Mark said yes to all three but added that the feedback would have to be mutual. To this day, he has kept those promises. We still sit together (OK, not through COVID), meet one-on-one every week, and...

    Facebook parent company Meta's top executives are set to snub their firm's return to the office and instead work remotely from an array of very exotic locales.   Founder Mark Zuckerberg will spend half his year in Hawaii, with other executives enjoying remote work from Cape Cod, New York, Israel, Madrid, NYC and the UK.   Meta is set to welcome some of its 60,000 staff to return to its Menlo Park HQ in California from March 28, with the same rule applied to its other US offices. But a mandatory return is only expected of staff who work on hardware devices, or the company's data infrastructure. Others across all levels of the firm can work remotely for some, or all, of the time, and only return to the luxurious HQ if they so desire. Among those taking full advantage is Zuckerberg.    He will split his year evenly between his $53 million compound in Hawaii and $37 million five-house estate in Palo Alto, the Wall Street Journal reported.   'The past few years have brought new possibilities around the ways we connect and...

    Facebook (now Meta) founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has added yet more land to his already-vast holdings of real estate on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.

    Tech giant Facebook has rebranded itself with a new name, calling itself “Meta,” in a move that shows the company’s new focus on virtual reality. The Internet is having a field day picking on the odd name and Mark Zuckerberg’s even odder announcement video. Reuters reports that tech giant Facebook has rebranded as “Meta,” indicating the company’s newfound focus on building a virtual reality “metaverse.” The metaverse will be a shared virtual environment that Facebook believes could be the new primary form of online interaction, allowing users to socialize, work, and play in a limitless virtual environment. GLENN CHAPMAN/AFP/Getty Images The term metaverse comes from the popular sci-fi novel Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, published in 1992. The term refers to the idea of a shared virtual world which can be easily accessed by people from different devices. Mark Zuckerberg commented during the Facebook Connect keynote: “Right now, our brand is so tightly linked to one product that it can’t possibly represent everything that we’re doing today, let alone in the future.” Zuckerberg discussed his plans for the metaverse in July, stating:...
    Mark Zuckerberg's wife Priscilla Chan has revealed how her two daughters, aged five and four, are already learning to code with their tech-whizz father. The American philanthropist and a former paediatrician, 36, also admitted that she thought her Facebook-founder husband was a 'bit of a rebel' when they first met at Harvard 18 years ago.

    Former President Donald Trump accused Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg of 'illegal' election interference by donating more than $400 million for local election offices after a new study found they boosted Democratic turnout in Texas.  Trump has repeatedly said the social media giant is guilty of censorship after it banned it from the platform after the Jan. 6 attack on Congress.  Now he is targeting Zuckerberg's donations of about $419.5 million to a pair of nonprofits — the Center for Technology and Civic Life and the Center for Election Innovation and Research — to support local election offices as they tried to cope with increased mail-in voting during the COVID-19 pandemic. 'What he did, in my opinion, was illegal,' Trump told Bill O'Reilly in an interview broadcast on Monday interview on The First TV. 'He's going to get away with it,' O'Reilly said, according to the New York Post. Trump replied: 'Well, you don't know if he's going to get away with it. OK.'  At the time Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan said their money would be used 'to...
    Republican lawmakers were left outraged on Thursday after a bombshell report claimed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife gave nearly $420million to nonprofits that aided in the administration and infrastructure of the 2020 election, and heavily favored Democrat counties.   North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop accused the tech billionaire of putting 'his thumb on the scale' to give Democrats an edge in last year's races. 'Our elections are not for sale, but Mark Zuckerberg apparently believes otherwise as he did all he could to put a thumb on the scale for Democrats in 2020,' Bishop told DailyMail.com. 'It’s clear that no one meddled more in the last election than Zuckerberg and the Big Tech elites.' Kentucky Senator Rand Paul on Wednesday ripped Zuckerberg for trying to 'purchase' Wisconsin, a critical battleground state that was reportedly targeted by one of the Zuckerberg-funded groups, for Biden.  'Are our elections for sale?

    The far-left Netroots Nation progressive group has paired with Mark Zuckerberg’s corporate investors to rally progressives in favor of wage-cutting, rent-inflating, job-shifting migration and amnesty policies. The pro-migration cooperation was displayed on October 7 when the group allocated time during its virtual annual conference to let one of Zuckerberg’s lobbyists tout amnesty with far-left Rep. Joe Neguse (D-CO). “It’s a commitment that I feel like binds your work and my work together, that we are committed to seeing relief for families, for immigrant communities who have suffered for far too long without any real solution,” said Marissa Molina, the state director for FWD.us, an advocacy group for Zuckerberg and other West Coast investors. In response, Neguse lamented the growing unpopularity of the pro-migration goals shared by Zuckerberg’s group and some progressives: There was a time not that long ago 15 years ago, 10 years ago, where there was general consensus about the principles that would undergird a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the United States Congress … What we’re really in need of is political will. And that’s it. I...
    Testifying in front of Congress on Tuesday, Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen blamed the social network’s co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg for the negative effects the social media site has had on people in that “the buck stops with him.” During a hearing in the Senate Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, and Data Security, Chairman Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) remarked, “Last Thursday, my colleagues and I asked Ms. [Antigone] Davis, who was representing Facebook, about how the decision we had made whether to pause permanently Instagram for kids and she said ‘there’s no one person who makes a decision like that. We think about it that collaboratively.’ It’s as though she couldn’t mention Mark Zuckerberg’s name.” Blumenthal proceeded to ask Haugen, “Isn’t he the one that will be making this decision, from your experience in the company?” Haugen replied that Zuckerberg is powerful in the Big Tech industry, let alone at Facebook. “Mark holds a very unique role in the tech industry in that he holds over 55 percent of all the voting shares for Facebook. There are no similarly powerful companies that are as unilaterally controlled,” she said. “And in the end, the buck stops with Mark. There...
                        A top official within the Michigan Republican Party confirmed to The Michigan Star that the House Oversight Committee chaired by State Rep. Steven Johnson (R-72) is on the verge of holding a hearing on the role of a Detroit-based nonprofit in the 2020 election. The Star broke the story on August 5 of how the Michigan Center for Election Law and Administration (MCELA) received a $12 million grant to support its purported purpose of “nonpartisan voter education” and then turned all but a sliver of the money over to two Democratic political consulting firms for a get-out-the-vote campaign.  Up until 2020, the “nonpartisan” nonprofit was led by Jocelyn Benson, the highly partisan Democratic secretary of state of Michigan. It is unclear exactly when Benson left that position, but it was not until September 2020 that her name no longer appears as an officer of the committee in the annual report. Coincidentally, that is the same month when the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), a nonprofit funded by Facebook founder...
    Facebook is in talkes to form an independent election commission comprised of experts to help it decide how to run political adverts and stamp out fake news ahead of the 2022 midterms.   The proposed commission would help Facebook navigate the qualms of today's political ads and what to do about election-related misinformation, after years of the social media giant facing scrutiny over its handling of such matters, The New York Times reported.  Facebook is expected to officially announce the commission this fall in preparation for the 2022 U.S. midterm elections, but sources said the plan was still in its infancy and could fall apart before then.  Facebook did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's request for comment.  The social media giant is reportedly looking to implement an election commission to help advice the handling of political ads and election-related fake news Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has had to repeatedly testify at Capitol Hill over his company's decision making process.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the social media giant has removed 18 million posts containing misinformation about COVID-19, but would not say how many times the posts had been viewed or shared. "If we see harmful misinformation on the platform, then we take it down. It's against our policy," Zuckerberg told "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King in an exclusive interview. "But do we catch everything? Of course, there are mistakes that we make or areas where we need to improve. But that's the best number that we have in terms of what we've seen and what our systems have been able to detect," he said.

Is it less than 18 million?" King asked. She noted that...
    What’s new about Marc Zuckerberg is that he wants you to wear his social network in your glasses. The product he has in his hand is some new smart glasses that would come from the hand of a collaboration with Ray-Ban. Mark Zuckerberg made an interesting announcement earlier today. The creator of the most famous social network in the world, even so much so that it has a film that tells of the birth of this platform and all the details of its origins, believes that the future of Facebook is to create smart glasses. Yes, what Marck Zuckerberg has said is that they have glasses on their release schedule. These glasses would also arrive thanks to the collaboration with a large company. The chosen company is Ray-Ban, more than known for its models and its journey. The interesting thing about these glasses is that they would be intelligent and would have their own functions. In fact, they would be compatible with augmented reality. Mark Zuckerberg has commented that this characteristic is of vital importance to create his “metaverse”. Mark...
    Mark Zuckerberg believes the coronavirus pandemic has created a new opportunity for Facebook to grow. His plan involves incentivizing churchgoers — who have become familiar with virtual services over the past year due to lockdowns — to permanently move their religious worship online. The company is intensifying its formal partnerships with faith groups across the United States and shaping the future of churchgoing as it entices users to connect with God on Facebook, rather than at a place of worship, according to a report by the New York Times. For example, Facebook developers had reportedly met weekly with the Hillsong Church in Atlanta, Georgia, to explore what the church would look like if it were on Facebook instead, as well as what apps they might create for financial giving, video capability, and livestreaming. “Together, we are discovering what the future of the church could be on Facebook,” said Sam Collier, Hillsong’s pastor. In June, the church issued a news release saying it was “partnering with Facebook,” and then began streaming its services exclusively on the social media platform. Facebook now seeks to “become...
    Mark Zuckerberg and his deputy Sheryl Sandberg have 'drifted apart' following disagreements about his handling of Trump, according to a new book - with the staunch Democrat left 'burning with humiliation' at having to defend some of Facebook's policies. Sandberg, 51, is said to have taken exception to Zuckerberg's wooing of the former president, which included showing him internal data revealing he had the most Facebook engagements of any politician and refusing to take down a fake video of Nancy Pelosi slurring her words. The 37-year-old CEO was determined to prove Facebook was not biased against conservatives, leaving his staunch Democrat deputy increasingly isolated, while Zuckerberg has also become 'critical of her handling of public relations', the new book claims. Sandberg, 51, is said to have taken exception to Zuckerberg's wooing of the former president. The pair are pictured at a tech summit Thursday in Sun Valley, Idaho  Cecilia Kang and Sheera Frankel, authors An Ugly Truth: Inside Facebook's Battle for Domination, spoke to dozens of former and current Facebook staff who said that the appearance of Zuckerberg and...
    Mark Zuckerberg had himself a day Sunday celebrating the 4th of July. The “Facebook” founder shared a video of himself riding a motorized surfboard to John Denver’s hit song “Country Roads” and he was waving around the American flag. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Watch the epic video below. This might be the coolest thing that Zuckerberg has ever done. Whenever you find yourself carrying the American flag on a motorized surfboard, you know that you’ve done something right. That’s what America and the 4th of July are all about. In terms of what represents the USA, good luck finding a better song than “Country Roads.” The classic song from John Denver is a top five all-time song, and it was the perfect selection for Zuckerberg’s video. We need as many videos of famous people celebrating the 4th of July as possible. Every single one is a reminder that some people still love this country. It’s a day to celebrate our greatness, and we shouldn’t take it for granted. I’m proud...
    Screenshot via Instagram. When you’re a billionaire, your holidays can be a little…different. That was the case for Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who apparently celebrated the Fourth of July by riding around a lake on an electric hydrofoil surfboard while carrying an American flag — and he posted the video on Instagram with John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” as the soundtrack. Watch for yourself below:   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Mark Zuckerberg (@zuck) The reaction on Twitter went from incredulous (this reporter doubted its authenticity until seeing the video on Zuckerberg’s verified account on Instagram, which is also owned by Facebook) to amusement, plus the expected round of jokes at the CEO’s expense.

    On Wednesday’s “Fox Business Tonight,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg should testify before Congress on Facebook’s correspondence with White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci on Facebook’s handling of posts on coronavirus. Blackburn said, “When you look at the suppression of information and the thwarting of Secretary Pompeo, we’ll pick that up at Judiciary Committee. Then you have Commerce Committee that oversees big tech. And when you find out and see this email trail between Dr. Fauci and his team and Mark Zuckerberg and his team where they’re really running a PR strategy and cherry-picking data and stats to build a narrative that they want to say. Dr. Fauci was covering himself and protecting himself, not the American people. That needs to be investigated. What happened with his agency and the Wuhan lab, that needs to be investigated. Of course, if there was a lab leak why the investigation from the State Department was thwarted. So you’ve got a myriad of oversight committees that need to be involved in figuring out. That is the course...
    Mark Zuckerberg is drawing jeers on social media after posting a slow-motion video of himself throwing spears while wearing ear protectors. The Facebook founder shared the clip on Monday with the caption: 'I have a very particular set of skills,' drawing his inspiration from the film Taken.  Critics were quick to mock the unusual display and seized on Zuckerberg's ear protectors - which seemed to be an unnecessary accessory for the activity that doesn't emit much sound.  That clip followed another eyebrow-raising video in which Zuckerberg fired a crossbow at a line of bowling pins.    It's not clear where the videos were filmed, though Zuckerberg has property in both Palo Alto, California, as well as Hawaii, where he has been photographed multiple times since the onset of the pandemic.  Mark Zuckerberg posted a bizarre video over the weekend of himself throwing spears while wearing ear protectors The Facebook CEO also posted a video of himself with a bow and arrow, shooting at pins Zuckerberg prefaced the videos by writing: 'A trail I wanted to hike is out of...
    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted videos of himself on Monday throwing spears at wooden targets, and shooting a bow and arrow at bowling pins.

    Former President Donald Trump labeled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as a “dangerous” person, while railing against the social media company’s minimum two-year-long ban on him. In a Monday morning interview with Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney, Trump said he has been using press releases in lieu of posting on social media due to his bans. He then pushed back against the bans, saying “it’s got to be stopped because our country is in danger.” Trump went on to say Zuckerberg used to visit him at the White House and congratulate him for being “number one on Facebook.” “You know, Zuckerberg would come to the White House to have dinner with me, couldn’t have been nicer,” Trump said. “‘Sir, you’re number one, congratulations, number one on Facebook.’ All of this crap. He would bring his wife.” He added, “They have to be stopped and they will be stopped eventually they are going to be stopped.” Twitter suspended Trump permanently following tweets that violated their Glorification of Violence policy in the lead up to the Jan. 6 insurrection. “These two Tweets must...
    FORMER President Donald Trump slammed Facebook for maintaining its ban on his social media accounts, calling the move "insulting" to him and those who voted for him. The scathing comments came after Facebook's independent oversight committee upheld Trump's suspension from the platform until at least January 7, 2023. 6Trump snubbed Zuckerberg, who supposedly used to request dinners at the White HouseCredit: AFP 6Facebook upheld its suspension on Trump's social media accountsCredit: AFP 6Trump's statement hinted at a future presidential runCredit: Donald Trump In a statement, Trump added snidely that CEO Mark Zuckerberg used to request dinners at the White House.

    Andrew Caballero-Reynolds/Getty Images The latest statement from former President Donald Trump starts with him talking about the “next time” he’s in the White House. Trump posted a second statement railing against Facebook keeping his suspension in place, and he said, “Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will be all business!” Have been hesitant to tweet many statements since he left office, but making an exception for this one following his two-year suspension: "Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife.

    Facebook spent $24 million in 2020 keeping its billionaire CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his family secure at home and when travelling. Pictured: Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan Facebook spent $24 million on keeping its billionaire CEO Mark Zuckerberg secure at home and when travelling in 2020, according to a financial filing from the tech giant. The huge cost comes due to 'identified specific threats' faced by the company's co-founder, necessary due to his 'unique position' as 'one of the most recognised executives in the world,' according to the proxy statement filed on Friday. Facebook spent $3 million more on protecting Mr Zuckerberg than in 2019, with the increase in costs blamed on the pandemic, the 2020 US elections, and the rising cost of personal bodyguards. The filing shows that in 2020, the company spent more than $13.4 million on personal security for its 36-year-old CEO 'at his residences and during personal travel pursuant to Mr. Zuckerberg's overall security program.' He also received a pre-tax allowance from the tech giant of $10 million for his family's private security, taking the total security spend...
    The CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, is said to have personally overseen changes on the social media platform's content policy that would allow the site to 'go easy' on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and the website run by him, InfoWars. InfoWars is an American far-right conspiracy theory and fake news website owned Jones who was ultimately banned by Facebook in 2019 but before his removal, the changes ordered by Zuckerberg ultimately made it easier for Jones and other far-right hate groups to escape scrutiny on the site. The social network was also used by such groups to recruit and indoctrinate users in the run up to the January 6 insurrection attempt at the Capitol last month. Facebook was about to ban conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, pictured, and links from his Infowars website in April 2019 but his ban took more than a month to come into place Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg did not consider Jones to be a hate figure and so overruled his own internal experts Rioters coordinated their attack on the Capitol in January on...
    Tim Cook has said targeted Facebook advertising is 'manipulating' people amid his ongoing battle with Mark Zuckerberg over privacy - and profit. The Apple CEO was forced to defend an update to the iPhone that will make it more difficult for companies to run personalized commercials on people's phones and iPads. When probed on the move Cook told GQ 'we don't' get to decide what happens to people's data. Instead he wants to 'supply the tools' so people can make their own decisions. He added: 'I don't want to decide, to be clear. Because I think that you and I may make a different choice. And what we want to do is supply people the tools so that they can make the decision themselves.  'That's opposed to the environment right now, where companies are deciding.' Cook also described Apple's new 'privacy nutrition labels' which will detail app’s privacy practices and what they do with user's data.  He added: 'With the privacy nutrition label, we're just trying to give the user more facts so they can make an educated decision of whether they want to download this app...
    Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrives for testimony before the House Financial Services Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill October 23, 2019 in Washington, DC.Win McNamee | Getty Images LONDON — Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg threatened to pull investment in the U.K. in a private meeting two years ago with Matt Hancock, who was then the U.K. government's secretary for digital, culture, media and sport. Minutes from the meeting obtained by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and described online on Tuesday provide a summary of the encounter, which occurred at the VivaTech technology conference in Paris in May 2018. The minutes — published after a two-year freedom of information (FOI) battle — record Zuckerberg speaking "of an anti-tech U.K. government and said he jokes about adding the U.K. as the only country in the world he will not visit." A second country was redacted from the minutes. In response, a spokesman for the social media giant told CNBC: "The U.K. is our largest engineering hub outside of the U.S. and just this year we...
    Pandemic got you down? Facing the prospect of a long, dark winter? Don’t worry, Mark Zuckerberg’s still out there surfing. The Facebook founder, whose personal net worth increased by 46% during the coronavirus pandemic, hit the waves in Hawaii over the weekend. The 36-year-old appeared to be on the same $12,000 eFoil remote-controlled surfboard he was spotted using over the summer. Zuck at least has learned from the last time he was snapped out on the waves — when his slathered-on sunscreen drew comparisons to the Joker, Queen Elizabeth I, and Data from “Star Trek” — and appeared to lay off the white stuff this time.Mark Zuckerberg wearing a heavy layer of sunscreen over the summer.MEGA ShareFacebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin ReddIt Victoria-Gosling RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR UncategorizedStunning ‘river of fog’ ripples through mountains UncategorizedMario Lopez is sexy Colonel Sanders in KFC and Lifetime movie UncategorizedRadiologist says city forced him out over work-from-homeTop ArticlesCharlie Blythe: TikTok User’s Rich Parents Behavior Goes Viral December 4, 2020Cam Newton’s Pre-Game Outfit Has Social Media Buzzing November 29, 2020Chris Kruse Now: Where Is...
