Mark Zuckerberg should be smiling from ear to ear, right? Whilst obviously happy with these results, there is a nagging concern that Facebook is still grappling with.

One of the aims of OUTstanding is to not be around in five years. We want things to have progressed so much that an LGBT professional network is a luxury not a necessity. I'm truly proud of the progress we're making and I feel confident we can make this a non issue by the end of this decade, smashing the glass closet in business for good.

Hate, dislike, sadness, vociferous difference of opinion - these are the ties that bind.

As a product person behind some of today's digital technologies, I know that innovation does not happen at one's desk: it happens when there is human contact and interaction. Innovation cannot have a rational approach to how it is conjured because it emerges from chaos theory, for randomness.

Your profile is supposedly a 'private' representation of your life that only a select few can see, and it is individually interpreted. Yet, as much as we try to ignore it, the trends of online activity amongst Generation-Y are proving to be unhealthy, addictive and damaging.
