Facebook Weekly Highlights features photos posted to the social network by celebrities and athletes. This week’s edition featured the photo on the homepage by Phil D’Auria Photography, in which “Jersey Shore” cast member Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino recognized the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy with a photo of the boardwalk in Seaside Heights, N.J. ; as well as the photo above of musician Sheryl Crow signing Gibson guitars in her driveway.

Get ready to have Snooki, of “Jersey Shore” Fame, appearing in your Facebook feed, thanks to a new game that is scheduled to be released later today.

Apparently Facebook users can’t help themselves from watching the train wreck which is MTV’s “Jersey Shore”. To be honest, I can’t either.

The Jersey Shore Facebook Page has almost quadrupled in the past month to over 475,000 fans and now there’s also a Facebook application in honor of the show.
