'Atlanta' Renewed for Season 4 at FX, Production on Seasons 3 and 4 to Begin Next Spring

'Atlanta' Renewed for Season 4 at FX, Production on Seasons 3 and 4 to Begin Next Spring Donald Glover's "Atlanta" has been renewed for a fourth season at FX before production on its previously-ordered third season has even begun. The Season 4 renewal was announced during the cable channel's day at the Television Critics Association press tour Tuesday, when it was also revealed that production on both upcoming seasons — which are eight episodes apiece — is scheduled to begin next spring. But we still don't have a shooting location for the show, which famously films in its titular city, Glover and FX have yet to address how Georgia's anti-abortion law may or may not affect the show's decision to continue to film in that state.

Facebook will begin hiding likes on Friday, where the number of reactions, views and likes will be only visible to a post's author. The test will begin in Australia, the social media giant confirmed Thursday, and includes ads.

Facebook's mobile app may finally get a built-in dark mode

Facebook's mobile app may finally get a built-in dark mode While Twitter, YouTube, and Slack have begun to roll out dark modes built right into their mobile applications as optional themes, Facebook and its suite of apps have been trailing behind in this particular trend. 

Facebook added it would "gather feedback to understand whether this change will improve people's experiences."

Facebook first flagged it might experiment with hiding likes earlier in September, after testing it on Instagram this year. In August, Facebook said the Instagram test was to "remove the pressure of how many likes a post will receive" on Instagram, and it was "excited by the early test results."

How the Astros got their swagger back .
WASHINGTON — Nearly half the room was filled with champions. Their rings, each studded with 25 natural sapphires and 214 diamonds, from 2017 still glimmered, if not in lock boxes, certainly in memories. They knew better than to feel as shaken as they had looked coming off the Minute Maid Park field last week. They were beleaguered from an embarrassing Game 2 loss that frittered away home-field advantage and put them down 2-0 in the World Series to the chest-pounding Washington Nationals, who were playing more like the Astros had two years ago.
