The year is wrapping up and 2013 is closing in! So far, 2012 has been unbearably exciting with Obama claiming his turf, Gangnam Style, well, everything, classy events in London (totes not fair they got Queen Eliz’s Jubilee and the Olympics!), talk of the end of the world, and Lindsay Lohan getting arrested again.. and again.. and again.

But seriously, who has time for worrying about that stuff when you can watch yourself enjoying the highlights of 2012? Aka your New Year’s Eve kiss, that epic bday party you don’t remember, crazy vacays, or just hanging out with friends on an idol Tuesday. There’s an app for that and it’s called Animoto. Simply, connect your Facebook to the app (so it can collect your pics) and then Animoto takes over: a dash of music, a pinch of love, a few words of inspiration, and out pops your “Best of 2012”!

Easy, right? Make your Year In Review here.

There have been tons of reports over the last few days that the Facebook bug posting your old personal messages on your wall is a hoax. However, this morning Kristen and Liz from coolmomtech.com found some of their private messages from 2010 posted for everyone to see.

They were unable to cross check the public posts in the private message box, but they think the posts were not actually set to public. Until everything is confirmed we are playing it safe and following the tips to find out if Facebook has made our personal messages private (rude!) and hiding them… quickly! Here’s how:

1. Go to your Timeline

2. Click 2010 (and then earlier) from the right side

3. Look at “Friends 2010: # friends posted on Your Name’s timeline”

4. Hover or click the pencil (depending on your computer)

5. Select Hide From Timeline

(Repeat for previous years)

Every single private message sent is not being seen, but there were definitely a few mixed in with the public wall posts. Even though people really have to search for them, you don’t want your private messages made public at all… I don’t even want to see most of my own from before 2010! It’s probably embarrassing. Hopefully they will fix the bug and fix it fast!

In short, yes.

As the folks over at Mashable so eloquently put it, you can’t protect your privacy rights with a status update. You may tech savvy, but the legal system isn’t.

So please don’t bother your friends with that ridiculously long post. It’s a complete waste.

We are all for Facebook bringing us closer and knocking down walls, but there are just some things that fall into the gray area with regard to their Facebook appropriate-ness. You and a hookah that could be used for tobacco, but probably isn’t? Maybe. A picture of your beach vacation that may or may not have started the day you called in sick. Risky.

The following, however, should never, ever be posted on Facebook. We actually have a call scheduled with MZ (Mark Zuckerberg, that is) to make these immediate grounds for explusion…

1. Your HIV test results. Yes, it’s wonderful news that you don’t have HIV. But Facebook is simply not the place to share this news. It is also most certainly not the place to post the actual test results with all your personal info.

2. Someone else’s news. I’m sure you’re excited about your sister’s pregnancy, but if she hasn’t posted her mom-to-be status, neither should you. One of your 900 friends might be someone she actually wants to tell in person.

3. Drinking if you’re under 21. Maybe you’re 20, maybe your parents wouldn’t care, and the cops probably aren’t trolling for underage arrests online. But it is illegal, and college admissions people and potential employers do check.

4. Naked pictures. You’d think this wouldn’t be something that needs to be said in 2011, but even though Facebook weeds out nudity, save them the trouble and keep your own in a drawer. And while we’re on the subject, before you post naked baby pictures, think of how much your baby will appreciate you holding back when he/she is twelve.

5. Threats. They’ll come back to haunt you when your boss has a mysterious accident…

6. Overt flirting with someone other than your significant other. At best it can lead to a stupid fight, and at worst you can become part of the statistic that 1 in 5 divorces are caused by Facebook.

7. Personal information. This includes, but is not limited to, your cell phone number, birthday and address. Facebook stalking is one thing, actual stalking is another. Don’t make it any easier.

8. Your relationship drama. Yes, your husband may very well be a cheating bastard, but if you decide to take him back, don’t expect all your FB friends to magically forget how heartbroken you were and forgive him, too.

Facebook is totally addictive. If there’s a computer nearby, you’re on Facebook. Standing in line? Yup, that’s why there are Facebook apps. Considering just how often everyone updates their status, you probably don’t even realize the hours you spend “liking” and commenting. But chances are, it’s excessive. And you might even need help.

Here are 5 signs you need to step slowly away from the FB…

1. You can’t remember your friends face, but you could spot his/her dog and/or baby on a crowded street in a heartbeat.

2.You hear the Facebook chat noises everywhere; they haunt your dreams.

3. You express your thoughts by screaming “Like” at the speaker.

4.In the face of shaking an enemies hand, you run away yelling “friend request denied!” over your shoulder.

5.You clicked on this article out of genuine concern.
