*"Facebook hires Pinterest and BuzzFeed execs to bolster its video content.

The social media giant has hired BuzzFeed Studios former head Matthew Henick 

to lead Facebook’s global video content strategy and planning, reports Reuters. 

From Pinterest, Facebook grabbed Mike Bidgoli to lead the Facebook Watch 

product team. Facebook Watch is the company’s video-on-demand service that 

launched to limited users last August. Both hires show Facebook is aggressively 

continuing its foray into the crowded video content market. As Henick, 

Facebook’s new head of global video content strategy and planning, said: “The 

future of storytelling is social.” Seems Facebook couldn’t agree more."

*"Jeff Bezos bumps Bill Gates from the top of the Forbes billionaires list. The gap 

between the rich and the really rich, like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, widens again. Jeff 

Bezos is the rare centibillionaire again, status fleetingly scored in recent months 

depending on Amazon’s share value.

But with a nudge from the latest stock boost, Bezos’s calculated fortune of $112 

billion lands him atop the Forbes billionaires list, released Tuesday, for the first 

time. Bezos’s fortune is up $39.2 billion from 2017, the biggest one-year gain in 

the list’s 32-year history and enough to unseat Bill Gates, who has a fortune of 

$90 billion, up from $86 billion last year."
