(Reuters) — Facebook Inc Chairman Mark Zuckerberg abandoned plans on Friday to create a new class of company stock with no voting power, which was meant to be a way for Zuckerberg to retain control over the company he founded while fulfilling a pledge to give away his wealth. Zuckerberg on Friday said that he could meet the charity pledge and maintain voting control of Facebook without the change. His decision followed a shareholder lawsuit opposed to the creation of a new class of stock. Zuckerberg said in a post on Facebook that the company’s stock had performed well enough that he could fund his philanthropy by selling stock for at least 20 years and still retain voting control of the company.

Why Facebook Will Struggle to Regulate Political Ads

In Business, Education, Finance, Government, Legal by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , ,

In 2011, Facebook asked the Federal Election Commission to exempt it from rules requiring political advertisers to disclose who's paying for an ad. Political ads on TV and radio must include such disclosures. But Facebook argued that its ads should be regulated as "small items," similar to bumper stickers, which don’t require disclosures. The FEC ended up deadlocked on the issue, and the question of how to handle digital ads has languished for six years. Now, it's blowing up again—and damaging Facebook in the process. The renewed interest follows Facebook's disclosure earlier this month that it had sold $150,000 worth of political ads linked to Russian troll accounts during the 2016 election. ... Read More
