Washington Post Co. chairman Donald Graham provided some of the choicest real estate in journalism — today's Post op-ed page — to Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg to tell the world that the social networking site is really, really, really concerned about privacy when it comes to its 400M users.
Early results: Zuckerberg struck out.
His 528-word piece has drawn the responses of 144 people as of 4:30 today with the majority skewering Zuckerberg.
Here are some highlights.
Privacy on FB is non-existent. I do NOT want friends to be able to see photo profiles of other friends by default or to have to know by default who is on my FB friends list as is the case now. I will never fully participate in FB until this changes.
As for Zuckerberg’s op-ed piece:
Too many "qualifiers", "explanations" and even pseudo "mea culpas" in this "apology" which really prove nothing other than you accept NO share of the blame for FaceBook's hubris,trampling on personal privacy and your condescending and dismissive attitude about it, Mr.Z. It seems to me that the ONLY thing you're sorry about is getting caught...and for the legions of people who have left your site in droves! “
