With many startups in cost-cutting mode, it’s critical to follow local laws and social norms when it comes to laying off employees, said Sendbird CEO John S. Kim.

After leaving two startups with international teams, he has written a TC+ guest post to help founders communicate with employees in turbulent times.

At a time when India’s central bank is cracking down on robbery, Google says it has removed more than 2,000 personal loan apps from the country’s Play Store this year. Jagmeet writes.

In addition, Instagram now has a restrictive content standard for new users under 16 and a prompt for existing teens, Sarah writes.
