Our boy Marky has found himself neck deep in trouble as of late. The best thing to do would at this point would be to make some reassuring comments to make the 400 million Facebook users at ease over the whole privacy issue. Zuckerberg officially stated that Facebook’s privacy settings are “too complex”, and that the site will change these settings “as soon as possible”.
Is it just me, or can you imagine Zuckerberg making this sort of a statement while scoffing at the users for their stupidity? In any event, Facebook is currently trying to change its ever-transient user experience by taking things a bit slower. Zuckerberg went on to state that “in the coming weeks, we will add privacy controls that are much simpler to use. If people share more, the world will become more open and connected. And a world that’s more open and connected is a better world”.
Better for the marketers, right? Zuckerberg went on to state the five principles that Facebook follows:
- You have control over how your information is shared.
- We do not share your personal information with people or services you don’t want.
- We do not give advertisers access to your personal information.
- We do not and never will sell any of your information to anyone.
- We will always keep Facebook a free service for everyone.
Take your pick as to which of these five “principles” is actually true. Hint: it’s not the top four.
