The Fun Is Back in Social Media…Again!

Every time there’s a new social media app or network that breaks out, someone writes an article about how this new network encourages people to be themselves and have fun without all of the heaviness of other platforms. The latest example of this is Kevin Roose’s NY Times piece about TikTok. TikTok has none of that. Instead, it’s that rarest of internet creatures: a place where people can let down their guards, act silly with their friends and sample the fruits of human creativity without being...

The business school prof who predicted Amazon would buy Whole Foods now says an AWS spinoff is inevitable — and the standalone company could be worth $600B (AMZN)

Amazon will split off Amazon Web Services as a separate company, marketing professor Scott Galloway said at Business Insider's IGNITION conference on Monday. By doing so, Amazon will unlock at least $70 billion in shareholder value, he said. But the move could also help appease regulators looking to rein in the big-tech companies, he said. Amazon will spin off its cloud business in the near future, unlocking tens of millions — perhaps even hundreds of millions — of dollars in value, marketing...
