In an eye-opening expose of Facebook’s real policies and practices, Megan Heimer, a popular lifestyle and mommy blogger, posted a hair-rasing blog at her LivingWhole.org site.

CIO.com published an interview featuring Mark Weinstein last week, highlighting MeWe CEO’s take on recent corporate hacks and how to better prepare.
“Sometimes executives believe that if they’ve hired a few people, they’ve solved their vulnerability problem. But it’s more complex than that — landing the talent’s only half of the equation.
