CONCORD, Mass. -- Yes, she really is Kate Middleton.
Kate Middleton, the Boston bicycle enthusiast, that is.
But that hasn't stopped the 32-year-old from being confused with the woman who is about to marry Prince William. Recently, Facebook accused the Boston Middleton of being an impostor and deleted her account. Various media reporters also keep showing up at ATA Cycle, a Concord, Mass. bicycling shop where she works, and asking her to speak in a British accent.
"I'm really not interested in pretending I'm British," said Middleton, who is originally from Louisville, Ky. "And I'm...

The Rev. Franklin Graham says he knows what could be the ultimate trending topic on Twitter: the second coming of Christ.
Graham, son of the prominent and politically connected Christian evangelist Billy Graham, gave an Easter prophecy of his own on Sunday, telling ABC's "This Week" host Christiane Amanpour that social media could be the way in which Jesus Christ's second coming could be revealed to the world.
"The Bible says that every eye is going to see [the Second Coming]," Graham said. "How is the whole world going to see [Jesus Christ] all at one time? I don't know, unless all of a...

There are still eight days before Kate Middleton officially joins the royal family, but the princess bride is already becoming more popular than her famous crowned kin -- even the late Princess Diana.
The Global Language Monitor, a Texas company that tracks word usage trends around the world, has just released a study tracing how many times Middleton has been mentioned in different types of media over the last three months.
Turns out Middleton is a major headliner. People can't seem to keep her name out of their mouths.

WASHINGTON -- Young people use social media like Facebook and Twitter for more than simply staying in touch with their friends; they're also a means to make school and career connections, according to an Associated Press-Viacom poll.
Four out of 5 high school and college students say websites are an excellent or good way to interact with fellow students, and a bit fewer -- about 7 in 10 -- say they're equally good for getting information on class assignments or school events, or to form study groups and collaborate with peers. Just over half say the Internet is useful to look up ratings on...

What stories went viral last week? Here's a roundup from BuzzFeed.
The final week of March has come and gone and spring is in the air. For some, that means it's time to have sex in public. No, really. The week began with Community star Donald Glover tweeting these candid shots of a couple getting intimate inside a Bank of America. (Insert tasteless joke about "making a deposit" here.)

It's no wonder the escaped Egyptian cobra hasn't been found at the Bronx Zoo: She's having too good of a time taking on Manhattan.
In reality, the zoo says it may be weeks before the pencil-thin, 20-inch venomous asp comes out of hiding. She's believed to be confined to the zoo's World of Reptiles building after slipping out of her enclosure several days ago. But while the hunt for the cobra continues at the zoo, a witty Twitter writer has imagined her young life on the town.
Under the handle BronxZoosCobra, the "snake" began tweeting Monday, starting off with some thanks to the...

If and when Jose Canseco gets fired from the latest season of "Celebrity Apprentice," Donald Trump better double-check to make sure he's not actually canning Canseco's twin brother, Ozzie.
A boxing promoter in Hollywood, Fla., is alleging that he hired the controversial baseball player to participate in a celebrity boxing match for $10,000 -- and Canseco sent Ozzie to pretend he was Jose and fight in his place.
This scenario may have worked in movies like "The Parent Trap," but, according to the Sun Sentinel, it failed in real life because Jose has a barbed wire tattoo on one arm and Ozzie...
