Squarespace users this afternoon will get a set of tools that will enable them to more easily publish their content to Pinterest and gather data about the traffic those pins are driving to their site.

Squarespace is often used to quickly get a site up and running, and that’s of particular interest to businesses that need an online presence but may not have someone technically savvy enough to build a richer website.
Marauder's Map, a Chrome extension that showed your Facebook friends' exact physical whereabouts, was officially axed on Thursday.
Harvard computer science major Aran Khanna, an incoming Facebook intern, announced he had created Marauder's Map in a Medium post earlier this week.

Well, I’ve been happy to find that it’s possible to follow your passions into a career, no matter what those passions may be. With social media, you now have a platform to do what you love—and to make a career out of it.
