Facebook, Google, and the US government each have their own reasons to make you believe that TikTok is scary — but they're all self-serving

President Trump and the US government have been considering a ban on TikTok over long-held concerns regarding its ties to China, and its access to user data and influence over content moderation.

How Netflix's new CMO Bozoma Saint John rose to become the biggest 'badass' in marketing

Bozoma Saint John, Netflix's newly named CMO, has climbed the corporate marketing ranks over 20 years, using her celebrity connections and ability to tie brands like Pepsi and Apple to cultural trends.

Emails and IMs from the CEOs of Amazon, Facebook and Google show how they think about acquiring companies — and it has little to do with the quality of a startup's product (AMZN, FB, GOOG)

Documents made public Wednesday as part of a Congressional antitrust hearing give insight into the concerns of tech's most powerful CEOs leading up to game-changing acquisitions.

Chairman of House antitrust subcommittee calls for Facebook to be broken up after big tech hearing: 'classic monopoly behavior' (FB)

At Wednesday's big tech antitrust hearing, lawmakers grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg about the company's acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp as part of an investigation into possible monopolistic practices.
