Student job finder WayUp acquires competitor Looksharp

WayUp is making its first acquisition — it’s buying the similarly-focused Looksharp. Both companies have created job listing sites for college students and recent graduates, but WayUp co-founder and CEO Liz Wessel (pictured above with Looksharp CEO Andrew Maguire) told me they’re complementary in a rather specific way.

The bull case for Snapchat

Before I make a product-driven case for Snap Inc. achieving a $100 billion market cap by 2020, I should note that I’ve been a Snapchat bear for much of the company’s existence.

What Zuck’s letter didn’t say

He might not want to run for office any time soon, but Mark Zuckerberg has perfected the time-honored political art of talking a lot without saying anything.

Facebook plans customizable filters for nudity and violence

Facebook wants to give you the power to define what is and isn’t objectionable, and influence the local defaults who don’t choose voluntarily.

Meetup, the site that helps people organize get-togethers like hiking trips and cooking classes, is taking a very solid political stance in the face of the new administration’s policies here in the U.S. — a move that has angered Trump supporters, who are deleting their accounts and calling for a boycott. While Meetup’s platform is open […]

Twitter starts putting abusers in “time out”

Twitter is putting online bullies in “time out.” As one of the company’s many new anti-abuse measures, users whose accounts have been identified engaging in abusive behavior will have the reach of their tweets temporarily restricted. During this time, the abuser’s tweets will only be shown to their followers, Twitter says. The change was spotted by BuzzFeed, […]

Snapchat beyond Stories: Be the HBO of mobile

Snap is three things, and everyone else is two of them. There are plenty of chat apps, and Stories is being copied successfully by Instagram, with more Facebook clones on the way. But Snapchat’s unique Discover section, full of mobile-only daily magazines from professional publishers, could evolve into something game-changing: the premier place for premium […]

The Daily Show’s MakeTrumpTweetsEightAgain is political commentary at its geekiest

Whether you agree or disagree with his policies one thing is certain: making someone’s Tweets look like they were written by a third-grader is really funny. The folks at the Daily Show proved this with their Chrome/Firefox plugin MakeTrumpTweetsEightAgain. The extension is pretty simple: any Trump Tweet is automatically turned from a measured, well-crafted response […]
