Facebook's ex-security chief says Mark Zuckerberg should hire a new CEO

FB

CNBC21 May 2019, 19:26 GMT. Former Facebook security chief Alex Stamos said on Tuesday that Mark Zuckerberg should hire a new CEO and turn his focus to building products. "He needs to give up some of that power. If I was him, I would go hire a new CEO for the company." Stamos even offered a specific suggestion: Microsoft President Brad Smith. Stamos knows something about the issues plaguing the company — he was among the first people at Facebook to discover Russians were using the social network to interfere with the 2016 election. Since the departure in March of Chief Product Officer Chris Cox, Zuckerberg has been effectively acting as Facebook's product head, Stamos said, adding that he should keep his attention there and hand over the lead role.

Firm at centre of Instagram breach denies storing personal details

FB

A report by US website TechCrunch claimed personal contact information for a number of influencers and brands had been found on a server which was unprotected, and potentially accessible by anyone. Mumbai-based Chtrbox said the database was “inadvertently exposed for approximately 72 hours”, and claimed it was not holding any personal data on users. “This database did not include any sensitive personal data and only contained information available from the public domain, or self-reported by influencers,” the company said in a statement. Facebook has been at the centre of several data scandals involving the third-party use or mishandling of personal user data, most notably the Cambridge Analytica incident in 2018.

'Junk news' gets massive engagement on Facebook ahead of EU elections, study finds

FB

'Junk news' gets massive engagement on Facebook ahead of EU elections, study finds. Misleading news stories from doubtful sources drew in as much engagement on Facebook as articles from legitimate sources in the run up to European elections, according to a study from Oxford University. "On Facebook, junk news outlets tended to receive more engagement per story, but are seen, shared, and liked by far less people overall," academics at the university wrote in a research paper. "Most viral junk news stories in our data set revolved around controversial political issues such as immigration and security rather than focusing directly on European politics."

Putting Facebook Under the Microscope Is Good News for FB Stock

FB

Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) stock is allegedly having a tough time recruiting people to come work at the company. CNBC recently reported that it’s spoken with more than half a dozen recruiters who’ve left Facebook in 2019 about the difficult questions potential job applicants are asking the company. Going to work at Facebook if privacy is sacrosanct to your beliefs is like an animal lover going to work at Canada Goose (NYSE:GOOS) or an environmentalist taking a job at Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM). Betray people’s trust and you are going to get put under the microscope. However, owners of FB stock shouldn’t view the alleged inability of Facebook to attract the best talent as a problem.
