Pinterest’s IPO structure could give CEO Ben Silbermann the right to control the company from beyond the grave

Pinterest's S-1, publicly filed on Friday, revealed a unique share structure. The company has dual-class shares, which give some shareholders, like founding CEO Ben Silbermann, greater voting powers than other investors. But the structure also gives Silbermann's estate the ability to retain its extra voting superpowers for between 90 days and 540 days after his death.  Silicon Valley's power players are already preparing for the grim spectre of mortality.  Pinterest's S-1 paperwork, filed pub...

Facebook rejects idea of putting time delay on live videos to stop horrors like the New Zealand mosque shootings from being broadcast to the internet

Facebook has rejected the idea that putting a time delay on live videos would stop harmful content, such as the New Zealand mosque shootings, from being broadcast to its billions of users. Facebook said the volume of live video made it difficult to police even with a time delay, while such a delay might also slow down first responders. New reporting tags, however, may be added after the New Zealand attack was reported for "reasons other than suicide," a category whose vagueness may have increa...

An internet pioneer is doubtful Mark Zuckerberg can refocus Facebook on privacy. Here's why. (FB)

Internet pioneer Paul Vixie is dubious about Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's plan to create a "privacy focused" social networking platform. Vixie, the CEO of Farsight securities, has worked on privacy and security issues for decades. The concepts of "private" and "social" are fundamentally at odds, and no one yet has figured out a way to blend the two, he said. Facebook may be feeling constrained by Europe's new privacy law, which illustrates how difficult it can be to promote both privacy and ...

One of Facebook’s biggest strengths risks backfiring on it after 2 key execs quit (FB)

A tech firm that builds chatbots for big brands like Macy's and Alaska Airlines is acquiring a bot startup to corner the messaging market
