Brooklyn-based street artist/hacker KATSU has created a portrait of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg using his own feces.

It is described as a rendering of a tech giant who is “in control of more information than the government created from the compromising bio-matter of the artist.”

KATSU, who is known around the city for his signature skull tag and work with a fire extinguisher, has mocked Zuckerberg before in a series of wheat pastes depicting him with a black eye.

This latest piece is part of his first solo show called “Remember the Future,” featuring a variety of works that intersect art and technology.

The others are not quite as bizarre as the poop painting but strange in their own ways as you can see in the link below.

The exhibit runs through Feb 22 at The Hole.

Facebook is preparing a dislike button

You know you hate just about most of the things that you see on Facebook. The baby pictures, the couples in gooey love, the political nonsense, the insanely inaccurate information, the list goes on forever and grows every day.

Well, rejoice, you cynical a**holes.

Mark Zuckerberg confirmed during a Facebook headquarters Q&A Sept. 15.

According to Re/code:

"I think people have asked about the dislike button for many years. Today is a special day because today is the day I can say we're working on it and shipping it," Zuckerberg said.

He told the audience that the company realized people want to express emotions other than positivity, especially around posts about sensitive subjects like the Syrian refugee crisis.

He didn't give further information as to what the "Dislike" button might look like. We could look to the new "reactions" product from workplace chatting app Slack as a possibility. Slack's reactions allow people to comment with a full range of emojis on others' posts, which leads to everything from check marks to laughter and food images to animated hands clapping.



We won't put all of our eggs in this thumbs down basket just yet. This is in direct opposition to what Zuckerberg said just nine months ago when he said there were no plans to introduce such a thing.

But if you'd like to take today's news as the truth, then strap on your dancin' hooves and get hatin'.

Facebook Phone, we hardly knew ye. After being on the market in the United States for just 31 days, AT&T is pulling the plug on the first smartphone to feature Facebook's Android UI overlay of apps known as Facebook Home. Among the litany of problems Home had, there was:

  • The Cover Feed. When you log into the phone's homescreen, you're already signed into Facebook, and you already have notifications popping up on the main page. Congratulations! You get to see all the useless crap your sort-of acquaintances post whether you like it or not! Huzzah!

  • Those crappy ads you see on the right side of your news feed. Did we mention those would also be plastered onto the homescreen? So instead of seeing all your favorite apps, you'd see a big fat ad for ChristianMingle. Sweet!

  • No privacy controls. You'd think a company with a privacy track record as piss-poor as Facebook's would make assuaging fears of privacy invasion a top priority with their phone release. Nope. Not a word from Zuckerberg & Co. on app permissions, possible geolocation, data logging, browsing habits, etc. For all intents and purposes, you could be carrying around a court-mandated ankle bracelet in your pocket, and you wouldn't even know it.

Better luck next time, Zuck... y'know, if there even is a next time...
