"On This Day" allows Facebook users to enter their own social media time capsule, a museum that pulls up statuses and photos from years gone by. You know, the super important things like asinine updates about traffic or that episode of "Scandal" you were super pumped about, or all the old pictures of your Ex that you never bothered to scrub from the internet entirely.

The feature is private and allows you to share the retro material only at your will, so you're free to crack open a bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 and cry about the state of your current life in absolute privacy. Be warned though: Expect every terrible baby pic you saw three years ago come back like the Ghost of Boring Parents Past.

Transgender writer and activist Janet Mock recently went on the air with resident poopstain extraordinaire Pierce Morgan. After Morgan delivered a string of backhanded compliments and proved that he knew virtually nothing about the Trans community (while simultaneously cutting her off at every point), Mock took to social media to give him the what for.

Facebook is infiltrating your office with the release of a new iOS and Android app called "Work," which will initially only available to a limited number of companies participating the pilot.

The new app isn't exactly the Facebook you are used to. It's an internal social network designed as a communication tool for companies to collaborate on projects without using email.

In other words, it's not for watching cat videos, it's for doing your job.

The new app uses the same interface as the standard Facebook app, but the information is private within your company, and you can create individual groups for specific projects.

Users can create a separate login or link their personal accounts to the professional accounts, but the information posted for work stays in the Work account.

There are no ads and it's free at the moment, but Facebook will most likely charge a subscription fee at some point, according to WSJ.

Above there you'll see the perfect "OH S*" face from a local news anchor, and here's what the comedy twittersphere had to say about it:
