Trending This Week: Presidential Politics, Twitter Revamp, Thumbs Down for Facebook

Presidential hopeful Rick Perry went viral this week in a video featuring him making promises to end Obama’s war on religion and saying he'll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage.

"I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a Christian, but you don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school,” he says in the 30 second spot called "Strong."

At least he gets through the piece without once without losing his train of thought.

Is he crazy or a political genius? You decide.

Twitter redesign

Twitter introduced a new version of Twitter and TweetDeck this week simplifying the design to make it easier to follow interests, connect with others and discover something new. The new design can both be seen on and mobile phones, so that you’ll have a familiar experience anytime, anywhere, the company said.

Facebook goes thumbs down?

Facebook Like

According to reports, engineers at Facebook are fussing around with a Thumbs Down button. The negative sentiment analysis feature for pages would allow users to register their "dislike" for posts. Facebook's Like (Thumbs Up) option has revolutionized how people use social media.

  1. Perry is neither mad nor a genius (or even a mad genius); he’s just a man on a Mission: what’s he got to lose? At the very least, his run for the money is a test run, and at most, he’s a VERY long shot.
