Social media mogul Mark Zuckerberg has come out of hiding today and announced plans to unveil Reconnectbook.com, a new social network for people who’ve lost a real connection with each other on Facebook.
The new network’s launch early next year should coincide with the at least $100 million in claims Zuckerberg will pay to investors stemming from Facebook’s botched IPO.
While critics of the new venture claim this is just another way for the 28-year-old billionaire to offset his own monetary losses and ultimately “get all the money,” Zuckerberg says his motives are much more altruistic.
“I’m in the business of rekindling friendships,” Zuckerberg told media.
“Facebook failed. It’s no secret that it’s become nothing more than a place for random acquaintances to share their travel, baby and animal photos. Or share overly-simplistic political rants. On Reconnectbook users can get back in touch with people they were once actually friends with.”
Amongst other changes, Reconnectbook will have full Apple iOS 6 Integration, and more stringent guidelines. Said Zuckerberg, “Anyone caught posting how yummy their lunch was will be kicked off the site immediately.”

The bar has just been raised in the summer bikini body game. Miley Cyrus showed off her well-toned body when she hit the pool in Miami on Wednesday, and the results are impressive.
Of course, Miley's pool style wasn't enough of a story for gossipmongers insinuating the 19-year-old singer and actress was having inappropriate contact with an unknown beardo in the pool. Turns out the bearded young man in question is just a "good friend, and longtime assistant," according to Miley's rep. His name is Cheyne Thomas, and Miley took to Twitter to call out the nasty rumors on Wednesday.
