Facebook is trying to develop its own streaming video platform, I'm sure they don't want Reed Hastings in the boardroom being privy to any plans they might talk about there.

Apple made the mistake of keeping then-CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt, on their board when Apple was developing the iPhone and iPad at the same time Google was working on Android.

Probably an honest mistake at that point, because Google was very secretive about Android, but I can only imagine the things Eric Schmidt found out about the iPhone that he passed on to the Android engineers.
