    Google and Meta are spearheading a fierce push to kill New York legislation aimed at protecting children online — and the controversial lobbying battle is poised to surpass $1 million in spending ...

It would also allow parents to impose time limits on social media use and in-app notifications. ...

    Mark Zuckerberg, the billionaire founder of Meta, has recently made waves with his latest acquisition—a $300 million superyacht named Launchpad. Zuckerberg’s luxurious vessel, which is longer than a football field, has drawn criticism based on his climate activism. The Hindustan Times reports that with an estimated net worth of $180 billion, Mark Zuckerberg has joined the ranks of tech billionaires like Jeff Bezos, Larry Ellison, and Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page in buying a luxurious superyacht. The 118-meter vessel, designed by Swedish-based Espen Øin International, boasts a sleek, multilayered exterior with a robust steel hull and an aluminum...

    Election integrity watchdogs say private funds in elections pale in comparison to what Biden has wrought through the power of his pen.Think “Zuckbucks” are bad? The leftists who crafted “Bidenbucks” say, “Hold my beer.” Earlier this month, Wisconsin became the 28th state to tell Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and the private-money-in-elections mob to go Zuck themselves — and for good reason. The Badger State knows as well as any what millions of dollars of leftist-led activist cash in the administration of elections can do to election integrity and voter confidence. Zuckbucks — the nickname for the $400 million-plus that Zuckerberg...

    The answer for those who hate the invasion of Zuckbucks is ‘Yes’ times two on the April 2 referendum questions.Hey, Wisconsin: The future of “Zuckbucks” is coming to a ballot near you. Badger State voters have the opportunity on Tuesday, April 2 to kill the snake of private funding in election administration, which consumed the 2020 elections under cover of Covid thanks in large part to the “generous” donations of Facebook founder and conservative speech silencer Mark Zuckerberg. Coupled with a meaningless presidential primary and a spate of local elections, two critical questions on the spring election ballot ask voters...

    Some home sales make a big splash, while others happen with little fanfare. A recent one, involving a property that's been linked to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, was of the latter variety. According to a report from the Real Deal, the four-bedroom, 3.5-bath mansion on about 3.5 acres in Woodside, CA, passed from one limited liability corporation to another in a $29.6 million deal a couple of weeks ago. Zuckerberg didn't keep the Woodside place for very long. An entity linked to his name shows that he purchased the 4,800-square-foot home, which is about 30 miles south of San Francisco,...

    'Doomsday prepping' used to be seen as a hobby relegated to the paranoid fringe — but ordinary Americans spent a staggering $11 billion on survival items, just last year, from April 2022 to April 2023. About a third of US citizens admit to prepping, surveys show, but few have the resources today's billionaire bunker-builders have to devote to their own shelters. The world's wealthiest have increasingly spent hundreds of millions on securing underground compounds, private islands and (for the merely rich) 'survival condos.' Late last year it emerged Mark Zuckerberg was building a $100 million hidden fortress buried beneath his...

The tech executive owns $170 million of land on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, where he’s building a $100 million humongous, prepper-style compound. On Tuesday, in a Facebook post, Zuckerberg revealed more of his plans for the property: He will raise a herd of cattle on a homegrown, incredibly expensive diet. “My goal is to create some of the highest quality beef in the world,” the Facebook founder wrote.

    A Wisconsin judge ruled Monday that state law does not allow the use of mobile absentee voting sites, siding with Republicans who had challenged the city of Racine's use of a voting van that traveled around the city in 2022. Republicans opposed the use of the van, the only one of its kind in Wisconsin, saying its use was against the law, increased the chances of voter fraud and was used to bolster Democratic turnout. Racine officials, the Democratic National Committee and the Milwaukee-based voting advocacy group Black Leaders Organizing for Communities refuted those claims and defended the legality of...

    He’s building a Zuckerbunker. Mark Zuckerberg is reportedly building a sprawling $100 million Hawaii compound — complete with an underground bunker and its own food and energy sources — in a secret project suggesting the social media mogul is trying to conceal his doomsday preparations.

The compound on Kauai island will consist of more than a dozen buildings with two...

    For the past two weeks, I’ve been using a new camera to secretly snap photos and record videos of strangers in parks, on trains, inside stores and at restaurants. (I promise it was all in the name of journalism.) I wasn’t hiding the camera, but I was wearing it, and no one noticed. I was testing the recently released $300 Ray-Ban Meta glasses that Mark Zuckerberg’s social networking empire made in collaboration with the iconic eyewear maker. The high-tech glasses include a camera for shooting photos and videos, and an array of speakers and microphones for listening to music and...

It’s unclear why Cole was censored, but the teen captioned a photo of her bio on the social media platform, wherein she identifies herself as a detranstioner.
