Mark Zuckerberg Answers Our Privacy Concerns
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has come out of hiding with a public statement in the Washington Post today to dispel concerns over privacy abuse allegations.
The following is a quote from his article:
Here are the principles under which Facebook operates:
- 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.
That’s quite a double-take from a young man who not long ago said he doesn’t believe in privacy. So what can we conclude from all this hocus pocus?
I’m not sure if I buy his story but I consider myself a fair man so I thought I would throw him a bone or two and let you be the judge. Either…
- All of the reports that we’ve been hearing are completely bogus .. OR;
- Zuckerberg is now a born-again Christian and had a complete change of heart .. OR;
- He’s just been pretending to be a bad guy and playing with our head (April Fools) .. OR;
- He’s trying to prove the old adage that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely .. OR;
- He’s a pathological liar trying to lull us into false sense of security so he can change his mind later (again) .. OR;
- We’re delusional nincompoops and have been imagining things all along.
Which is it?
