Facebook brings Stories to Facebook Dating
Image: Facebook Facebook is continuing to spread its Stories product, now bringing the ephemeral format to Facebook Dating users. Daters can re-share their Instagram or Facebook Stories on the dating platform, both to current matches and prospective ones. They won’t be able to capture content in Facebook Dating, which is important to note, although they can choose what Stories content to share from within the dating platform and also cross-post from within Facebook or Instagram. Bringing Stories to the app is designed to give people more insight into their matches while also proving they’re real people, says Charmaine Hung, lead product manager on Stories for Facebook Dating. The feature looks exactly like Stories on Instagram or Facebook. There’s a... Continue reading…

YouTube is working to bring advertising to edgier content as demonetization woes grow
Photo: Getty Images YouTube is experimenting with placing advertisements for more mature audiences on edgier YouTube videos in an effort to address demonetization woes. Videos that might be more violent in nature (like stunts, challenges, or simulated action) largely have not had advertisements run on them over the last couple of years. That also goes for videos that cover sensitive topics; news commentator Philip DeFranco often talks about his videos being considered unfriendly for advertisers, despite white-listed channels like CNN and MSNBC running ads on their videos talking about the same subjects. Now, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki writes in a letter to creators that her team is working to find out which advertisers might be interested in having their... Continue reading…

Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge Google has increased the maximum prize for its Android bug bounty program to $1 million for anyone who can compromise the Titan M security chip found in its Pixel phones. The top prize is for a “full chain remote code execution exploit with persistence” of the dedicated security chip.

WeWork's Adam Neumann got $1.7 billion. 2,400 employees just got fired.
WeWork is laying off thousands of its employees, just months after its embattled former CEO and co-founder walked away with $1.7 billion. The struggling office-sharing startup confirmed that it's letting 2,400 employees go, according to a report by CNBC. A WeWork spokesperson told CNBC that the layoffs were being made in order to “create a more efficient organization.” The layoffs come following WeWork’s botched IPO attempt this summer. The company, which was valued at around $50 billion just earlier this year, ended up pulling the initial public offering, but not before shining a light on its big financial losses and corporate mismanagement run amok.

The $46,000 Mercedes-Benz A220 is the newest entry point to the famous luxury brand. We tested it to see if the 2019 Car of the Year runner-up is worthy of the badge.
Hollis Johnson/Business Insider The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A220 is an entry-level four-door in the luxury carmaker's A-Series lineup, which has only recently hit US shores. The nearly $50,000 car I tested was packed with performance extras and technology. Budget-minded buyers might look elsewhere, but the A220 is fun to drive, easy on gas, and a great introduction to the Mercedes way of life. It's one of the best small sedans I've driven, and that's why it's a 2019 Car of the Year runner-up. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Editor's note: Business Insider will name its 2019 Car of the Year on November 23. Each day this week, we're taking another look at the five vehicles that were runners-up selected from a pool of 16 finalists. Thus far, we've named the Lamborghini Urus, Nissan Leaf SL Plus, and Cadillac XT4. Our fourth runner-up is the Mercedes-Benz A220. You can read our full 2019 Car of the Year coverage here. Mercedes-Benz has been selling cars in the US for decades, but until quite recently, Americans were denied the rinky-dink A-Class vehicles that Mercedes had delivered elsewhere on the globe. The A-Class was created in 1997. I saw my first one in the early 2000s — I'm pretty sure it was a Brazilian-made car that had been sold in Mexico and had made its way to a parking structure in downtown Los Angeles. Fifteen years later, the A-Class has finally made it to the USA, for its fourth generation. I had never driven one before, so I was delighted to check out a 2019 A220 sedan with Mercedes' 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. My tester didn't have an official sticker price, but by my estimation it was roughly $46,000. That ain't chump change, but my A220 did have pretty much every option that could be added; base-priced examples hover around $32,000, which is about $10,000 cheaper than the lowest-grade C-Class. Bear in mind that you are getting a Merc that, unlike other sedans in the automaker's long history, is based on a front-wheel-drive architecture — the same idea behind Honda Civics and Toyota Corollas. I tried to avoid allowing my bias for rear-drive German luxury sedans to come into play with the A220. And when it was all a wrap after a week in the New York-New Jersey area, I was perfectly happy with the Benz's engineering. But what about the rest of the ride made the A220 good enough to be a 2019 Car of the Year runner up? Read on to see what I thought. Photos by Hollis Johnson.The A220 is a subcompact four-door that now slots in below the C-Class. A-Class rides are Mercedes' new point-of-entry. In "Iridium Silver Metallic," the A220 looks sharp, but it also blends in. Hollis Johnson/Business Insider If I had to sum the A220 up, I'd say the front is sleek and elegant, while the stubby rear ... is not. Hollis Johnson/Business Insider The compact stance definitely works better up front. My A220 had a special AMG Line package ($2,600 extra) that included a diamond-block grille, vented front disc brakes, and a dropped suspension.

The world's best-performing stock of 2019 just lost 98% of its value in a single morning
Reuters / Cheryl Ravelo-Gagalac Marble-mining company ArtGo was the world's best-performing stock of 2019, through Nov. 20, for firms with market values greater than $1 billion.
