Default Facebook is 69% male and mostly white

The facts show that 69% of Facebook's global staffers are male. A full 85% of the company's tech workers, and 77% of its management team, are also men.

The company's U.S. workforce is 57% white, 34% Asian, 4% Hispanic and 2% black.

"As these numbers show, we have more work to do -- a lot more," Maxine Williams, Facebook's global head of diversity, said in a statement.

Yahoo (YHOO, Tech30), one of the most prominent Silicon Valley companies with a female CEO, has a U.S. workforce that is 50% white and 39% Asian. Only 6% are either black or Hispanic.
Political correctness is an intellectual gulag.

Russian alternative to Facebook.

Pavel Durov: founder of Russia's Facebook and no friend of Putin
The VKontakte entrepreneur may not be quite as rich as Mark Zuckerberg, but he probably doesn't need to worry about recently becoming unemployed.

Vkontakte Founder Pavel Durov Becomes Citizen of St. Kitts and Nevis (Apr. 28 2014)

Vkontakte social network founder Pavel Durov acquired citizenship of St. Kitts and Nevis shortly before fleeing Russia amid a conflict with security services over data protection and privacy, a news report has said.

Durov, who was "fired" from his position as Vkontakte CEO last week, received a St. Kitts and Nevis passport by contributing $250,000 to the Caribbean nation's sugar industry in February, an unidentified source close to the company's shareholders said, Izvestia reported Monday.

Durov's brother, Nikolai, who worked as a technical director at Vkontakte, is also seeking citizenship of the Caribbean nation through a similar investment program, the source added.

St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship may be obtained by investing $400,000 in the country's real estate, or by making a "non-refundable contribution" of $250,000 to the Sugar Industry Diversification Foundation, according to the islands' citizenship-by-investment program website.

It takes between three and six months to process a citizenship application for St. Kitts and Nevis, a spokesperson for Henley Estates, a company that handles citizenship-by-investment applications for wealthy emigration-seekers, was cited as telling Izvestia.
