Daily News Roundup: Facebook’s Privacy Shift

Yesterday at the keynote for Facebook’s F8 developer conference, several key Facebook leaders took the stage to announce new additions to the product.

I deleted all the apps off my phone for a week — and it was harder than I could have imagined

I deleted all the apps off my phone for a week to see how it would affect my productivity and attention span. Surviving a week without apps was much more difficult than I expected, and the app that I missed the most was not the one I expected. But by the end of the week, I had become less distracted and more productive. I ended up redownloading my apps at the end of the experiment — but not all of them. For the past week, I lived with no apps on my phone. I launched this experime...
