Weird Wide Web: the week in online oddities

The internet’s best offerings in social media, tech, science and weird news.

WELCOME TO THE Weird Wide Web – where we take a look at some of the internet’s best offerings in social media, tech, science and weird news.

Photo Sync

Facebook probably has a lot of your photos already – but it wants more, which is why it is introducing Photo Sync. The new service will automatically upload every single photograph you take with your phone to a private album, and then allow you to choose whether or not you want to make images public.

Convenient or invasive?

Would you like to use your Facebook and Twitter accounts as your postal address? Well now you can: SoPost turns your social IDs into a postal address so family, friends or companies can send things straight to your account without any details of your home address being shared.

Do you want to add custom overlays to you photos?

This could be you…


I’m just like you

After searching Facebook for people with the same name as him, Reddit user CasinoRoy decided to send them friend requests… but only after dressing up like them and replicating their profile picture first.

A better use for Facebook has never been envisioned.
