Her first month on the job, she had to oversee a 30% layoff. Now, Tile's VP of People thinks she's cracked the secret of building company culture even in the hard times.

Lissa Minkin joined hardware company Tile in January 2018 after a disappointing holiday season that left the company scrambling financially. Her first order of business as the new VP of People and Workplace was to fire 30% of the startup's staff. As an HR veteran with experience at Facebook and eBay, Minkin then set out to rebuild trust among Tile's remaining employees and improve the company's culture. In a conversation with Business Insider, Minkin said the biggest mistake founders make onc...

Advertisers are grappling for alternatives as Facebook plans to roll out a 'clear history' tool that could limit one of its most powerful targeting tools

Facebook has begun preparing advertisers for its plan for a "clear history" tool that lets people clear their Facebook history, which will limit one of advertisers' most powerful targeting tools. The "clear history" tool comes amid growing demand for privacy online and scrutiny of how ad tech companies collect and use data on users. There are still a lot of unknowns about how the tool will work and how widely it'll be used, but advertisers are starting to seek out alternative targeting tactics...

Sheryl Sandberg revealed a new argument to stop regulators from breaking up Facebook (FB)

Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, says the company is working hard with regulators worldwide to create new rules to regulate internet companies such as it.

The argument goes like this: Even if we broke up Facebook, there would still be big, powerful Chinese companies that weren't subject to a breakup.

Facebook is overrun with fake accounts impersonating tech execs like Tim Cook, Elon Musk, and Sundar Pichai (FB, GOOG)

Facebook is overrun with fake accounts pretending to be famous technology industry executives. The fraudulent accounts are purporting to be everyone from Tesla CEO Elon Musk to Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. The existence of the accounts raise questions about Facebook's ability to police its app for malicious behaviour. Last year, Facebook was criticised over fake accounts of CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

People pushing to break up Facebook are overlooking one problem: It could bring back 'growth hacking'

Facebook cofounder Chris Hughes wants to split Facebook into three companies: Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram. He thinks that's the best way to protect users and democracy. But it might be easier to regulate one giant company instead of a handful. The competition caused by splitting up Facebook might also return social networks to "growth hacking" and other sins from social media's early days. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Last week, Facebook's first spokesperson, Chri...

Scaling The Maternal Wall: Why Do We Still Underestimate Working Mothers?

I was standing at Cipriani’s in New York celebrating another year with my law firm and talking with a brilliant colleague who had just been elected to the firm’s partnership. It was 2006. Over celebratory clinking of glasses, my newly-minted-partner friend whispered to me that she was pregnant with her first child, followed with a quip about how she had timed it perfectly because her partnership was now secure. I was a motherless 26-year-old and this was the first time that I was privy to the r...

How to Exist: 20 Years of NewMusicBox

Forgive me if I begin this look back at twenty years of NewMusicBox and its times by opening a different, older, but resolutely print magazine. In October 2000, about 18 months after NMBx’s founding, The Wire, the UK-based magazine for new and exploratory music, reached a milestone of its own: issue number 200. It marked the occasion with a directory of 200 “essential websites”: sites for record labels, venues, artists, discussion groups, and more. Nearly two decades later, the idea of trying to...

Facebook’s Snapchat Clones Have 500M Users Each

First introduced on Instagram in August 2016, the Stories format was heavily “inspired” by one of Snapchat’s most popular features and gradually found its way to all of Facebook’s social media and messaging apps. All of Facebook’s stories features, i.e. Instagram Stories, WhatsApp Status (which might as well have been named Stories too) and Facebook Stories have surpassed Snapchat in terms of daily active users by now, regardless of whose idea it originally was. The ongoing shift towards stor...

You might hate it, but Facebook Stories now has 500M users

You might think it’s redundant with Instagram Stories, or just don’t want to see high school friends’ boring lives, but ephemeral Snapchat-style Stories now have 500 million daily users across Facebook and Messenger. WhatsApp’s Stories feature Status has 500 million dailies too, and Instagram hit that milestone three months ago. That’s impressive because it means one-third of Facebook’s 1.56 billion daily users are posting or watching Stories each day, up from zero when Facebook launched t...
