Gunfire erupted as police stormed a chocolate shop where a self-professed sheik was holding hostages in Sydney early Tuesday.

An intelligence source named the gunman as Man Haron Monis, who is also known as Sheikh Haron. He appeared to be making demands to negotiators through Facebook, YouTube and local news media.

Monis has been convicted of penning offensive letters to the families of Australian soldiers slain during the war in Afghanistan. A black flag used by Islamist groups in the Middle East had been shown in the window of the Lindt cafe.

E-coyotes: The Central American people smugglers who ‘Like’ Facebook

When Alan Villeda began smuggling people from Honduras to the United States in 1998, he could only communicate with customers via patchy phone calls. These days, he is a word-of-mouth success and new clients seek him out on Facebook.

Social media like Facebook and Skype are changing, and in some cases accelerating, the decades-old northward migration of Central Americans, U.S. and Honduran officials said, by providing crowd-sourced information on the risks and rewards of making the journey.

Images and testimonials posted by migrants who have made it to the United States help keep uprooted families closer together and drive business for e-commerce “coyotes” like Villeda, who is based in the city of La Ceiba on Honduras’ Caribbean coast.

Facebook remains the most popular social media platform among marketers, but less than half agree that it’s actually effective, according to Social Media Examiner’s 2014 Social Media Marketing Industry Report.

Nearly 100% of professionals polled reported using the network in business-to-consumer marketing while 89% said they used it to communicate with other businesses. Despite these astronomical numbers, 57% of the marketers either don’t think their Facebook posts make a difference or aren’t sure.

Twitter came in as the second most popular site — 83% of marketers reported using the microblogging service — while LinkedIn took third. Only 28% take advantage of Instagram while a mere 1% have incorporated Snapchat into their work. The top six platforms have stayed relatively steady since 2012.

It appears that the billion-user club is about to get a new member.

Facebook announced the acquisition of messaging app WhatsApp on Wednesday, a deal worth up to $19 billion in cash and stock that puts serious muscle behind Facebook’s international reach.

In a call with investors to outline the acquisition, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum hinted multiple times that they expect WhatsApp to become a billion-user platform, a milestone that Facebook eclipsed less than 18 months ago.

Ever since I was little, I’m always fascinated with the images printed on the pages of travel magazines. Until today, those images still lingers in my memory. I started traveling to fulfill my dream, and that dream is to turn those images into reality, to experience how it feels like to be in a place where I have imagined myself to be. Now, I’m living the dream!
