A Word to the Wise - Silent Rogue
 
Who Needs Friends Like Facebook?
Not me. Why Mark Zuckerberg and his social network should stop invading our privacy.

(I did not write this article. I was surfing the internet and ran across it. I thought I would share since it is something I feel everyone should understand).

Mark Zuckerberg won’t say he’s sorry, but the 26-year-old CEO and founder of Facebook does promise to change his ways—a little. His nonapology came after weeks of outrage over Facebook’s recent changes to its privacy (actually, antiprivacy) policy, and was delivered in the form of an op-ed in The Washington Post. In his essay, Zuckerberg put on his best innocent-little-boy voice and claimed Facebook only changed its policies in order to help people share more information, because “a world that’s more open and connected is a better world.” In addition to that bit of risible rubbish, Zuckerberg also said Facebook intends to amend its privacy policy to address complaints. I doubt these changes will be substantive, but even if they are, as far as I’m concerned, it’s too little too late.
