Cupid, Flickr, Aqueduct, More: Friday Afternoon Buzz, November 23, 2013

Cupid Media was hacked. 42 million passwords. Plain text. Seriously?

Social search: a search engine for hashtags.

Flickr now has photo books.

Google continues its offroad endeavors with national parks Street View.

More Google: Google has launched Google Scholar Library. “You can save articles right from the search page, organize them by topic, and use the power of Scholar’s full-text search & ranking to quickly find just the one you want – at any time and from anywhere. You decide what goes into your library and we’ll provide all the goodies that come with Scholar search results – up to date article links, citing articles, related articles, formatted citations, links to your university’s subscriptions, and more.”

Now available: the Los Angeles Aqueduct History Project. “The Los Angeles Aqueduct celebrated its 100th anniversary this year, and the University of California, Riverside Libraries have joined the celebration by digitizing and publishing online a collection of hundreds of photos and documents and other materials that detail the history of one of the most ambitious public works projects of all time.”

Mashable has a Tumblr starter kit. Good afternoon, Internet…
