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.

Last Friday, Wisconsin news anchor Jennifer Livingston received an email from a viewer attacking her weight.

This morning, she responded to him on the air:

To the person who wrote me that letter — do you think I don't know that? That your cruel words are pointing out something that I don't see?...

Livingston went on to point out that October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and that she hopes the incident will raise awareness of bullying behavior, which is "passed down from people like the man who wrote me that email."

If you are at home and talking about the fat news lady, guess what? Your children are probably going to go to school and call someone fat.

Impressive.
