There is no middle ground. Both companies have disputed the charges.

among investors last year after it sold $3.4bn of stock with no voting rights during its initial public offering. It was the latest sign for many investors that the long-held principle of “one share, one vote” was being eroded by companies, which readily accept fund managers and pension funds’ money but were, the investors believed, increasingly unwilling to give them sufficient say on how those businesses were run. In the months since, a growing number of investors have stepped up their lobbying efforts against what they see as the watering down of governance standards globally, warning that shareholders need to be able to hold companies to account.
Have you noticed recently how all the tech giants have quietly updated all of their privacy policies, and small updates have been pushed out to consumers via mobile and desktops? The new era of consumer data protection is upon us.

Earlier this month, Facebook released the guidelines it says it uses to review content internally. The process appeared to be rather granular, but the rules that the legions of moderators the company hires are far more detailed, documents leaked to Vice’s Motherboard show.

Within hours of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going into effect today, a privacy group accused Facebook (FB), Alphabet (GOOGL)'s Google, WhatsApp, and Instagram of violating Europe's strict new data-protection law. Austrian lawyer Max Schrems, a frequent critic of Facebook's privacy policies, on Friday filed complaints that claim the companies forced members to consent to terms of service with a "take it or leave it" threat. "Tons of 'consent boxes' popped up online or in applications, often combined with a threat, that the service cannot longer be used if user(s) do not consent," Schrems’ nonprofit organization, NOYB, said in a statement.

I think this week we are officially “on pause” with our trade war while negotiations continue. Though I think the last update was that President Trump was not happy with how they are going. Either way, the ongoing fracas (yes, fracas) continues to dent the mood of investors in the US and clearly in China as well. The Hang Seng Index is only up 2% this year while the Shanghai Comp is down 5%. Meanwhile, here in the U.S., the S&P 500 (SPY) is only up 2% while the Nasdaq (QQQ) has gained 8%. It is tempting to not get involved in equities with so much uncertainty. ...
The stock market has tossed and turned this week in reaction to changes in the negotiations with North Korea and the looming threat of trade wars, but overall, it continues to act positive. This is consistent with the fact that the advance/decline lines, which had been in the corrective mode since March, finally completed their corrective patterns two weeks ago. NEW YORK, NY - MAY 21: Traders and financial professionals work ahead of the closing bell on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), May 21, 2018 in New York City. Much of the concern was focused on Facebook (FB), after the news about Cambridge Analytica was revealed in the middle of March. As investors tried to evaluate the implications for the stock price of FB, many investors sold the other FANG members, as well as a number of the other big-cap tech stocks.
A coalition of progressive groups is looking to spend as much as a six-figure sum on digital advertisements to promote its campaign to have Facebook (FB) broken up into smaller pieces, according to a report by Axios. The advertisements will run on platforms such as Instagram, Twitter (TWTR), and Facebook, implying that Facebook is poised to benefit financially from the coalition’s offensive. Instagram is one of the digital networking platforms owned by Facebook.
Twitter (TWTR) users could sooner or later be able to exchange encrypted direct messages on the platform, according to media reports citing clues in Twitter’s Android application code. Android, a Google (GOOGL) product, is the world’s most popular mobile operating system. In April, 75.7% of smartphones worldwide were running Android compared to 19.2% running Apple’s iOS and less than 1.0% running Microsoft’s (MSFT) Windows.
The meteoric rise of Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) seems improbable. Back in the late 1990s when the company was launched, and Google stock was still a question mark, there were already many top-notch search engines on the market. Google also crafted a powerful business model, based on the clicks of simple text ads.
