Tech companies with no women on their Boards

Sheryl Sandberg became the first woman to join Facebook’s Board of Directors yesterday.

That was a big step, but there’s still lots of room for more women in Silicon Valley. These tech companies still don’t have a woman on the board.

1. Twitter: Twitter was founded in San Francisco, but it’s used by people in nearly every country in the world. The micro-blogging site allows users to post 140 characters long tweets. The service is available in more than 20 languages. Even though 55% percent of Twitter users are women, the company has not named a woman to its board.

2. Zynga: The game-maker founded by Mark Pincus still has an all-male board of directors. Zynga Inc. is the world’s leading provider of social game services with more than 240 million monthly active users playing its games, which include CityVille, Zynga Poker, Draw Something, Hidden Chronicles, FarmVille, CastleVille, Words With Friends, Empires & Allies, Scramble With Friends, Café World, The Pioneer Trail, Indiana Jones Adventure World and Mafia Wars. Zynga’s games are available on a number of global platforms, including Facebook, Zynga.com, Google+, Tencent, Apple iOS and Google Android. Through Zynga.org, Zynga players have raised more than $10 million for world social causes.

3. Pandora: Pandora is free personalized Internet radio, on which one could simply enter a favorite artist, track, comedian or genre, and Pandora will create a personalized station that plays their music and more like it.

4. Foursquare: This Dennis Crowley’s company is run by men. It is a free app that helps you and your friends make the most of where you are. When you’re out and about, use foursquare to share and save the places you visit. It is used by over 20 million people worldwide.
