Am I reading it right? While I have definitely been out of touch with Facebook ever since the ban on the social network in Pakistan, but this news is worth sharing. Mark Zuckerberg sent Robert Scoble an email admitting that there is something wrong with privacy and Facebook; the two just don’t go together.
It really takes guts for a company’s CEO to stand up and admit the faults in his firm and Zuckerberg is definitely not one of those who would admit the faults. No matter how much truth there is in allegations, he just wont budge. From the email:
I know we’ve made a bunch of mistakes, but my hope at the end of this is that the service ends up in a better place and that people understand that our intentions are in the right place and we respond to the feedback from the people we serve.
Yeah right, a bunch of mistakes repeated over and over, so many times that its users have already started to get tired of trying to understands its terms and conditions. However it appears that addressing on a personal level is the new trend amongst the CEOs, we saw Steve Jobs do it and now we have Zuckerberg. But like everything else, this is bound to be forgotten. We anxiously await the changes that Zuckerberg is talking about and are equally aware that the updates will be based on hit and try method. Whatever gets praise from users will be approved, anything that gets massive criticism will be rolled back to be released later on.
Whatever the case be here, Facebook seriously has some major issues understanding and implementing its own Terms and conditions.
