Luckily for Facebook, it owns Instagram.   Exactly a year ago, the news broke that Facebook had enabled the mass, possibly illegal, collec...

The man who invented the web keeps puncturing Silicon Valley's self-aggrandising ideals about how it's been great for humanity

Tim Berners-Lee, the British creator of the World Wide Web, has used its 30th anniversary as an opportunity to take aim at Silicon Valley. Berners-Lee argued that the web has been tainted by misinformation, election interference, online harassment, in part thanks to the ad-funded business models pioneered by Google and Facebook. Berners-Lee called on the government to regulate for the digital age. Silicon Valley titans like to present their companies as more than mere services.  From Mark Zuc...

Mark Zuckerberg says his vision to divide Facebook's products in 2 could put its $56 billion business model at risk

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has published a 3,200-word plan to pivot to privacy. His vision is to split Facebook's product in two, creating both public and private spaces for users.

Mark Zuckerberg has laid out a vision of how Facebook services will become the backbone for the way people live online.
