FACEBOOK'S stock price has slumped by nearly $10billion (£7.4billion) after sealed court documents about the firm were released to the public. The secret files – which contain emails from billionaire boss Mark Zuckerberg – reveal the inner workings of Facebook, and the company's blatant disregard for user privacy. As stock markets opened today, the company's shares had fallen by around 2.5% – which works out at a loss of $9.5billion (£7.4billion). The company is now worth around $378billion (£296billion), as investors bail on the company over its rogue antics. Zuckerberg is under major pressure now, after MP Damian Collins, who is leading an investigation into fake news, yesterday published secret emails and messages sent between Facebook employees. The 250-page report revealed that workers tried to covertly gather users' calls and texts while covering their tracks in order to avoid negative headlines should the practice go public. In one of the … [Read more...] about Facebook loses £7.4BILLION on stock market after major leak exposed dodgy Zuckerberg’s emails

THE date for this year's Amazon Prime Day deals extravaganza has been leaked – and it's just a few weeks away. Amazon accidentally published a promotional banner for the big day, revealing that it would begin on July 16. The actual Amazon Prime Day is set for July 17, but Amazon is promising an "epic day and a half of our best deals".
