Seventeen magazine has released a new study about the impact of Facebook on relationships of 16 to 21 year olds. The study revealed almost 80 percent of people ‘friend’ a love interest within one week, and 60 percent check the profile of their crush at least once a day. In other news, Amazon’s Kindle is one of the most popular gifts this holiday season, and now you can give the gift of Amazon e-books. To give a friend an e-book you only need their email address and then you can choose a title from the 725,000 e-books available from the Kindle Store. And finally, Gawker Media published unauthorized excerpts of Sarah Palin’s new book on its popular blog, until a federal court ordered that Gawker remove the material. Palin personally responded to the leak on Twitter by tweeting, ‘The publishing world is leaking out-of-context excerpts of my book w/out my permission? Isn’t that illegal?’
