Facebook roundup: Zuckerberg, Open Graph, lawsuit, CISPA and more

zuckZuckerberg tops list of highest rated CEOs - Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is the No. 1 highest rated CEO, according to employee reviews on the career community site Glassdoor. Employees are asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way your CEO is leading the company?” Zuckerberg has a 99 percent approval rating. Apple CEO Tim Cook, who took the top spot last year, came in at No. 18 with 93 percent approval.

Zuckerberg supports immigration reform in letter to Obama - Zuckerberg was one of more than 100 executives of major tech companies and trade associations who signed a letter to the president and Congress this week calling for immigration reform to increase the number of highly skilled workers in the U.S. Specifically, the executives are asking for the quotas and categories for high-skilled nonimmigrant and immigrant visas to be more responsive to market needs and for spouses and children to not be included in those caps.

open graph globeUsers take 1B Open Graph actions daily – Facebook announced this week at SXSW that more than 400 billion Open Graph actions have been shared back to the social network since apps began integrating them in fall 2011. Of that, more than 110 million songs, albums and radio stations have been played 40 billion times via Facebook-integrated apps and 1.47 million books have been shared. The company says 1 billion Open Graph stories are shared daily.

legalLawsuit over ‘Timelines’ trademark continues – A lawsuit between Facebook and a company that claims the social network’s latest profile infringes on its trademark for “Timelines” will proceed after a federal judge denied Facebook’s motion for a summary judgment to end the case. Another round of settlement talks are expected ahead of a likely trial next month. Chicago-based Timelines Inc. originally brought the case against Facebook when the social network debuted Timeline in 2011.

Facebook withdraws support for cybersecurity bill – Facebook has changed its position on the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, which would let U.S. companies share more personal information with government agencies. The company previously expressed support the bill, but is it no longer on a list of corporate supporters. A Facebook spokesperson said in a statement to CNET: “We are encouraged by the continued attention of Congress to this important issue and we look forward to working with both the House and the Senate to find a legislative balance that promotes government sharing of cyberthreat information with the private sector while also ensuring the privacy of our users.”

Study: Facebook users more likely to find new jobs after talking more with close friends – People who talk more with strong ties on Facebook are twice as likely to find a new job within three months, and those who talk more with weak ties are less likely to find a job, according to the social network’s data scientists who surveyed about 3,000 users. Facebook offered a summary of its findings in a note, as well as a full study here.
