You know how everybody has that one cause that hits really close to home for them? This is it for me. I lost my cousin Kim in the Spring of 2008, when she was just 30 years old. The culprit? Breast Cancer. Help me fight this disease -learn more about Breast Cancer Awareness, and the American Cancer Society.

Facebook may be launching a new monthly subscription plan for users who are tired of seeing ads on the social network.
Facebook filed a patent for "Paid Profile Personalization" back in 2011 that would get rid of advertisements on profile pages, Janko Roettgers at GigaOm reports.
Here's a key chunk out of the filing:
The user may select one or more social networking objects to replace advertisements or other elements that are normally displayed to visitors of the user’s profile page that are otherwise controlled by the social networking system. In particular embodiments, the user may edit elements on their profile page that are otherwise automatically generated and controlled in design and content by the social networking system. In particular embodiments, the user is billed on a recurring basis for profile personalization.
That means users would be able to replace the ads located on the right side of the Timeline with photos, status messages, comments, and other "social networking objects."
Another example highlighted in the filing: customizing which friends are displayed on your Timeline.
