BY CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy. It’s a crowded market that relies on one bit of consumer wisdom: everyone loves a good deal. Now - Facebook’s getting in on the action. KCPQ: “The social networking site is adding a new feature that lets users share their shopping experiences with each other and save money. It's called 'Facebook Deals.' USA Today says the deals will appear on a users’ news feed through ads on a dashboard to the left. From there, you can buy the deal with a credit card, share it or 'like’ it.” The service actually launched in Europe about three months ago. By most accounts - Facebook Deals is going after one rival in particular: Groupon Commercial: “Save the money. Unlock great deals in your town. Groupon****.” Groupon killer? That’s the word in the blogosphere. ReadWriteWeb’s Marshall Kirkpatrick is already writing the obit. “At least in Europe, Facebook Deals offered deals for free. Free! The giant social network could scale like crazy doing that... It's a Walmart-style move, but Groupon isn't as lovable as the Mom 'n' Pop corner store.” Groupon reaches deal-seekers through a daily email -- Facebook Deals will show up in a users’ newsfeed. KTVU’s Jade Hernandez explains Facebook’s leg up on the competition. “Groupon counts on users to spread the word of a good deal through social media. But Facebook opens this up by using social networking platform. And by partnering with open table and gilt city, both of which specialize in different things, restaurant and high end deals with high end designers, the news is making some people excited about what a rivalry could mean for the consumer.” What it means for the consumer -- suggests All Facebook’s Jackie Cohen -- is market saturation. She asks- how long can the business of daily deals hold up? “So far, statistics have shown that businesses tend to do only one group buying offer to get customers and then never return to these services. That would suggest that this whole market has a very limited shelf life.” But the real headliner -- according to Forbes -- is users can spend Facebook Credits on the deals. Can you say game changer? “Until now people had only been able to use Credits to buy virtual goods for games, as well as for some digital products such as movies. Now people can purchase a voucher to buy a physical product for the first time ... which could move Facebook even further as an e-commerce platform.” That’s all TECHNICALLY true -- though Facebook PR reps contacted ReadWriteWeb to clarify -- users can’t buy “physical goods” with credits -- but rather vouchers redeemable at events. In the end though -- for all the “Groupon killer” talk -- Business Insider’s Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry calls himself a “Groupon bull.” “...actually, building a huge sales and service infrastructure is very hard ... similar to how anyone can start selling stuff online, but becoming Amazon is very hard. … [Facebook Deals’ key to success is] establishing that group buying is really a ‘feature’ that most media sites can replicate and not a ‘company.’” Facebook Deals won’t be offered on mobile apps. It’s making its U.S. debut in only five cities: Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, San Diego and San Francisco.

BY CHRISTINE SLUSSER You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy. “We can track you!” That message is going to be the new sticker bling for all of Verizon’s smartphones. ABC-affiliate WXYZ explains. “Verizon wireless is planning to add warning stickers on its cell phones. The move comes after Apple admitted its iPhones record and store users' locations.” A writer for Forbes hints that the stickers are Verizon’s way of responding to Congressional pressure about cell phone privacy. “On the Hill right now, privacy is the pretty, young thing that many a politician wants to make a move on. It seems that not a day goes by without a congressman calling a hearing, dashing off an angry letter, or introducing a bill about protecting Americans’ privacy.” Apple denies there’s a privacy problem with its iPhone, but all the trouble began when news broke it was possible to map users’ locations. A writer for MobileCrunch says the news got Verizon’s attention because the company doesn’t want its pocketbook drained. (Info: SeattlePI/AP) “Whatever’s being done with the data, it’s likely to creep folks out. And when folks get creeped out, the lawsuits start pouring in.” Verizon’s phone stickers won’t tell you exactly how to turn off the tracking -- and Detroit’s WDIV anchor even goes as far as to make a reference to George Orwell’s “1984”. “To limit access to location information refer to the user guide. So if you want the turn off big brother, refer to the guide.” AT&T admitted it keeps users’ information for up to five years, and Verizon fessed up to a whopping seven.

BY STEPHANIE STOUFFER ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says Facebook is in cahoots with the US government, working as a spy. Is the pot calling the kettle black? “Facebook in particular is the most appalling spying machine that has ever been invented ... Everyone should understand that when they add their friends to Facebook, they are doing free work for United States intelligence agencies in building this database for them.” (RT) The Onion News Network satirically reported the same thing a month ago -- Mark Zuckerberg is secretly -- or not so secretly -- working for the government. “According to Department of Homeland Security reports Facebook has replaced almost every other CIA information gathering program since it was launched in 2004.” All jokes aside, a writer for ZDNet says even though Assange might not have cables or documents to back up his story, the guy might be on to something. “We already know that the USA PATRIOT Act can be used, without necessarily the need of a court order or search warrant, to access the data held by a U.S. company... However, this can also apply to non-US datacenters and offices which are wholly owned and operated by U.S. organisations … though I don’t necessarily agree nor can confirm all of his suspicions, there is sufficient evidence to at least support many of his claims.” In his RT interview, Assange also said Facebook succumbs to government pressure too easily when the government wants information. But a spokesperson for Facebook tells Forbes, that ain’t so. “‘We don’t respond to pressure, we respond to compulsory legal process … we fight every time we believe the legal process is insufficient. The legal standards for compelling a company to turn over data are determined by the laws of the country, and we respect that standard.'” And a Daily Tech writer doesn’t buy Assange’s story. He says Assange is just vying for even more spotlight. “...he's relishing the attention and opportunity to air his thoughts on technology and what he perceives as a vast international conspiracy, headed by the United States … He doesn't waste much time making his thoughts known on the world's largest social network and most used website…” Assange has not revealed any evidence to support his Facebook-US intelligence theory.

BY TARA GRIMES ANCHOR ALISON ARCHER You're watching multisource tech video news analysis from Newsy. A Wyoming woman says she often sat in front of her computer with hardly anything on. The problem? She recently learned someone was watching... KDKA ANCHOR: “A couple from Wyoming is suing a local rental company claiming that it used a laptop they rented to spy on them. The couple claims that Aaron’s rental equips its computers with a device that lets the company take webcam photos of its customers and monitor their keystrokes and screenshots. The couple found out they were being monitored when a company manager went to their home with a webcam picture to repossess the computer.” The news is causing some media outlets to focus on the larger question – how many companies are doing this and how will someone know if it’s happening? The Inquirer notes a similar situation last year when a Philadelphia school was forced to pay up after it spied on students with webcams. “Unless a user has built their computer themselves, this brings up the question of whether they can be really be certain that someone hasn't rigged it to spy on them.” But is what the rental store did criminal? Like many media outlets, a Forbes blogger explains it might not have been completely in the wrong. “Privacy experts say that the rental company has the right to install technology to shut a computer down from afar and ensure its return in the event of non-payment, but that doing so without informing customers is probably going to get the company into trouble.” Some news outlets are curious to know what the courts will decide companies must reveal to their customers before renting out computers. A writer for CNET asks... “What, for example, should cell phone companies reveal in advance about their tracking habits? It seems that this is another example in which the progress of technology might have moved a little faster than the progress of the law.” According to the Associated Press, the case could become a class action suit. This could help reveal whether Aaron’s had spied on other families. In a press release, Aaron’s says the lawsuit is “without merit” -- and says it did NOT approve the tracking software its corporate stores were using.

BY ANDREW HOWARD ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource entertainment news analysis from Newsy Splitting up. After more 25 years of marriage -- Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced their separation. E! News Now MELANA SCANTLIN: “In a joint statement, the power couple have announced they are splitting. ‘After a great deal of thought, reflection, discussion, and prayer, we came to this decision together. At this time we are living a part as we work on the future of our relationship’. Maria reportedly moved out of the couple’s So Cal mansion a few weeks ago.” For some - the news comes as a complete shock. Gossip blogger Perez Hilton writes... “We did not see that one coming!” And a writer for OK! Weekly shares disbelief... “When it comes to celebrity marriages, surpassing five or even 10 years is a milestone but 25? Fughettaboutit.” Though the couple’s announcement blindsided some - The Today Show says Maria has been dropping hints for the past few months... ANCHOR: “The couple has reportedly been separated for weeks. Video of Shriver showed her again without her wedding ring. And two months ago on YouTube she posted a video talking openly about transitions.” MARIA SHRIVER: “It is so stressful to not know what you are doing next. How did you find your transition? Personal, professional, emotional, spiritual, financial. How did you get through it?” And according to TMZ -- Shriver might have been considering divorce for as long as two years. “Maria Shriver has been deciding whether to DIVORCE Arnold Schwarzenegger since 2009 ... but sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, she's been ‘extremely conflicted.’ … Our source tells us Maria is fed up with Arnold's infidelities ... coupled with the fact he's been ‘impossible’ to live with.” Whether you saw this split coming - a blogger for Forbes says the overall reaction online from the public is one of support for the couple... “Reactions on Twitter this morning echo surprise and sadness. On Facebook, a flood of fans offered their blessings and good wishes. Unlike most marriages in the limelight, many believed theirs had been sturdier.” As of now - the two have not revealed plans for divorce - so will Ahnold be back or is this the end of days for the two?

BY LINDSEY WOLF ANCHOR CHANCE SEALES You're watching multisource entertainment news analysis from Newsy. Lady Gaga is the proud owner of some new property - in cyberspace. The eccentric pop star and Farmville creator Zynga have teamed up to bring you Gagaville. HLN’s Robin Meade has the details. “Lady Gaga is getting her own farm in the Facebook game Farmville. No cows or pigs. In Gagaville, you’re gonna see magical unicorns and sheep on motorcycles - because that’s rock and roll! Gaga’s farm is to promote her upcoming album ‘Born this Way.’ Players who visit Gagaville next week can hear the tracks and win prizes.” Users can play Gagaville from May 17th to 26th. During the first two days, fans who complete certain tasks will be able to hear unreleased songs. After that, they will begin releasing non-exclusive tracks to anyone on Gagaville and allow her Little Monsters to win virtual prizes. Reactions to the new game are varied, but some are saying this proves the reigning Queen of Pop is also a marketing genius. All Facebook says Gagaville takes her strategy to a whole new level. “Even before the announcement of this rather elaborate promotion with Zynga, Lady Gaga has struck us as having one of the savviest social media strategies of any musical artist — GagaVille simply pushes all of this to new heights.” And Forbes says this won’t be the last time we’ll see brands take advantage of social games. “...the choice of Zynga is telling: it is a nod to the game-maker’s entrenchment in social media, of course – but also indicates how potent a factor virtual goods have become to real world brands.” But not everyone is pleased. A blogger for San Francisco Weekly thinks the Fame Monster already has enough fame and puts her in check be calling her by the name she was born with. “You will have to compete to pretend to farm [crap] on your computer to hear these songs. The entire embarrassing ordeal will last from May 17 to May 19 ... But really: Why, Stefani, why? Aren't you, like, famous enough?” The logic is that, since Gaga fans like Farmville, they’ll now want Gagaville. So, is this the start of a new trend? A Minneapolis Star-Tribune entertainment blog brainstorms future possibilities. “They’re also fans of chicken soup when they have a cold, too, so you might expect to see a special line of Campbell’s soup with tiny noodles in the form of her facial or shoulder prostheses.” But wait, there’s more! MTV explains the deal with Zynga also includes “Words with Gaga,” a Scrabble-like game happening within “Words with Friends,” that will debut at the same time. “The game will feature a Gaga-themed word of the day, which you'll be able to utilize during your matches. Doing so enters ‘Word With Friends’ players into a contest to win autographed copies of ‘Born This Way.’” “Born This Way” officially debuts on May 23.

BY MAURICE SCARBOROUGH You're watching multisource tech video news analysis from Newsy. It’s spy games for the Internet age. Facebook has been caught pants down after news surfaced it hired a PR firm to launch a secret smear campaign against rival Google. As a writer for Gizmodo puts it... “What to do when you're not quite the most popular girl but so desperately want to be prom queen? Start trashing Ms. Perfectpants behind her back! Normal enough for high school. Kind of pathetic if you're Facebook.” According to various reports PR firm Burson-Marsteller had been encouraging media outlets to look into Google’s privacy practices on behalf of an unknown employer. But as a writer for Forbes explains-- the plan eventually backfired. “...(a well-known Google critic) announced via Twitter that a public relations firm wanted him to slap his name on an anti-Google op-ed that they had ghost-written … A week later, USA Today revealed that it had received a similar pitch...” The Daily Beast finally managed to uncover the identity of the mystery employer - who some thought was Apple or Microsoft. When the smoke eventually cleared-- all signs pointed to Facebook. “The mess, seemingly worthy of a Nixon reelection campaign, is embarrassing for Facebook, which has struggled at times to brand itself as trustworthy. But even more so for Burson-Marsteller, a huge PR firm that has represented lots of blue-chip corporate clients in its 58-year history.” According to one analyst on CNN, these whisper campaigns happen all the time, but companies usually aren’t caught. So what prompted Facebook to launch this sneak attack? “You know it’s all about social networking, advertising and competition. You know think about it, Facebook is king when it comes to social networking, and Google is trying to get in on the party, but Google is reportedly doing so by taking some information from Facebook and posting it on its own Social Circle site. It’s just like when Google, Google News posts links to articles from other companies but the problem is here Facebook says it can’t do that. ... In the end this all comes down to a big fight for advertising dollars aka money.” According to The Financial Times Burson-Marstellar says it should have turned down the assignment in the first place.
