Zuckerberg: On Facebook, People Own and Control Their Information
I knew there was something fishy about the Consumerist article that claimed Facebook had the rights to use your content for any reason even if you deactivate your account. Gawker’s network built itself on stirring up controversy. In this case, Consumerist took advantage of people fearing that Facebook is becoming too much of a “big brother” social network. No need to freak out about your photos on Facebook as long as you can trust your friends.
Facebook Beacon on the other hand was a blatant violation of privacy. Sometimes it is good to keep Facebook on their toes about their TOS. Well done in spotting the changes, Consumerist.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry. You can follow me at @amitchowdhry or on Google+ at +AmitChowdhry
