Mark Zuckerberg Facebook Founder Defends Privacy Controls All Things Digital
Mark Zuckerberg Facebook Founder Defends Privacy Controls All Things Digital – A recent interview with Facebook’s founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, did not give the straight forward answers that many of Facebook’s users were looking for. In fact, the founder defended the privacy settings that have been in place. While the privacy settings seemed to be plenty powerful, many complained that they were hard to understand and needed to be streamlined. Perhaps Facebook users are looking for different ‘levels’ of privacy that they can adjust with just the look of a button? Zuckerberg made it clear that information sharing is the largest reason the social networking platform has been successful, and turning new pages onto ‘lockdown’ mode, and allowing the user to make their information available with an option would not be in the best interest of the company.
“Making these products that people can share and that people have control and that are simple to do both is this balance, and opt in versus opt out is one part of that balance,” Zuckerberg recently said to the Wall Street Journal.
The site has continued to expand since their inception at Harvard, and has grown to include a number of workplaces. The network has essentially become the worlds largest communication device, leaving many worried that heir personal information could become accessible to individuals that they do not want to be able to see it.
Zuckerberg went on to say that he believes that the definition of privacy is changing, alluding to the belief that in a few years the privacy worries that we have now may not matter to individuals like they do now.
