Billion-Dollar Facebook Investor Tells Mark Zuckerberg To Quit As Chairman from technology

Trending on Reddit, A Facebook investor says that it’s time for Mark Zuckerberg to step down as chairman of the world’s largest social network. Scott Stringer oversees New York City’s pension fund, which holds a $1 billion stake in Facebook. He says that in the wake of user privacy concerns about the Cambridge Analytica incident, Facebook needs better oversight.

Popular on Product Hunt, is Sunsama a new calendar platform for teams. If Google Calendar and Trello had a baby, it would be Sunsama. I don’t know about you, but that tagline really grabs my attention. The web app asks users to prioritize the tasks on their calendar, and then cross them off as they’re completed. Whatever doesn’t get finished just rolls over to the next day. You can assign tasks to members of your team, and of course, there’s integration directly into your Slack Channel.
