Product Hunt Daily Digest
May 1st, 2018
Facebook's annual, Apple-esque developer conference kicks off today.

Last year, Mark Zuckerberg announced Facebook Spaces, their version of the OASIS for you to hang out with best friends in virtual reality.

This year's F8 conference follows major controversy. Last month, Zuckerberg testified about the leak of 87 million users' data. Elon Musk even deactivated the SpaceX and Tesla Facebook page as part of the #DeleteFacebook movement.

Last night, WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum abruptly announced his departure from Facebook. WhatsApp's other co-founder, Brian Acton, left Facebook months ago. He hasn't been silent:



Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014 for $18B. Since then, the privacy-championing WhatsApp team has reportedly clashed with Facebook's data-empowered advertising platform, trying to protect their now 1B+ users from Facebook's advertising models.

Startups are paying attention. Mozilla (the company behind Firefox) launched the Facebook Container, a tool to block Facebook from tracking you around the internet. 🦊

Feedless launched to block Facebook on your phone. Chrome extensions exist solely to block Facebook.

We’ll cover the biggest announcements from F8 in tonight’s Sip, an app that delivers the most important tech news every day so you can focus on work. Download it now for your iPhone or Android device.
