Occasionally when opening pages that have the Facebook "Like" sidebar box thing (usually Wired or ThereIFixedIt), I get a pop-up that looks like the sidebar (like this--pictures and names blurred to protect random strangers). The address for this pop-up is usually in the form http://www.connect.facebook.com/widgets/fan.php?api_key=... I'm using Firefox with about a million extensions, none of which specifically apply to Facebook, Wired, etc. I have pop-ups disabled and neither Facebook nor any of the sites I'm getting the pop-up from have any exceptions in my pop-up preferences. I want to never see that pop-up again, what do I need to do to make this happen?

Facebook question: I often see that people make posts on Group pages and other people respond to them. I'm talking about regular members of the group, like me, not the administrator. I want these posts to show up in my news feed. I can't figure out how to do it. [more inside]
I should be able to let things like this go, I know, but a Facebook friend wrote a status update containing a phrase I've never heard, and not knowing what she meant is driving me nuts. I'm 44 and the opposite of "street." She's in her 20s -- a hip New Yorker. This sort of thing happens to me all the time, but usually googling or Urban Dictionary helps me. Not this time. So, is this a real phrase or is it some quirky thing she made up: "What's your evil?" [more inside]

I don't use any 3rd party applications on Facebook but is this some kind of adware/phishing/virus etc? The images in the right frame appeared while typing a status update; when I finished entering the update they disappeared. I haven't been able to reproduce this consistently but it has happened twice since yesterday. Anyone seen this?

I am asking this on behalf of my son. He has set up a Facebook Group titled something like, "If a million people join this group, it will help me go to college." His idea is, once he has a lot of people in the group, he'll have a URL set up with ads on it, which he can tell his group to click on. His question is: what's the next step? He doesn't have a bank account yet, he's not sure how best to stake out a URL, how to parlay clicks into his college fund, or if there are other, more effective ways to implement this. And I am of little to no help; what steps can I take to help him?

A student asked me this. Given that content providers to the media - journalists, bloggers etc. - are or can be paid for their content, why isn't Facebook obliged to pay me and its other 400m users, without whom it would be nothing? Or is the pleasure it gives sufficient payment in itself, a logic which my boss would love?

Every couple of weeks a different ~20 YO girl with a provocative picture, young enough to be my daughter, will try to friend me on Facebook. This squicks me out and I can't hit the ignore button fast enough. I can't help but think it's a precurser to some kind of scam. What are these girls up to?
