Because Facebook announced recently that they are removing the ability to "hide" yourself from the Facebook search.   It was a nice feature where people couldn't find you on Facebook by searching on Facebook.  You had to add someone before they could search and see you had a profile created.

Gotta cover those dividends for holders... and ads apparently aren't covering it anymore.  Nor making pages pay to promote posts.  Or making people pay to have their friends see their posts.  Or pay to send someone a message to their inbox and not the "other" messages folder.  Or pay for facebook credits to use in apps.

maybe his users should realize they are using a free service and stop being so entitled to privacy on a public site they so willingly signed up for?

Interesting concept, horrible idea.  Tracking the movements of every poor person seems like it perhaps could be slightly abused.

Oh wait.. I guess he envisions a society where poor people are happy that they are poor and don't mind, or perhaps a society with no poor people at all making the idea of paying for privacy completely irrelevant and moot.

Most of us in the free world grew up taking privacy for granted. As privacy becomes less and less a "right" and more of a privilege in the near future, its value will increase. People with means will gladly pay for it, and others will just have to get used to doing without.

This isn't necessarily a good thing, but it is an unavoidable one. And the Zuck understands this.

This.

Maybe it was fun at first but many of the people who use FB probably don't even consider the potential ramifications of certain things they post that should remain private.

Like my sister who wound up getting divorced because of what she spouted on FB not thinking her husband would ever see it. (Of course, I'm certain they had other issues but prior her FB posts they weren't so much out in the open).

That's right, because if it's free, he owns us.

sharphead: The more I read about Facebook the more I don't regret deleting my profile years ago. I give it another 5 or so years before people don't give a rats ass about it anymore.


I wish that were true.  But many people thought that 5 years ago.

Facebook has gone through a number of phases in terms of how people use it.  It started out sort of like Twitter is now: "This is what I'm up to, here are pictures of my kids.  Nice to hook up with old friends."
Then it turned into:  "Time to find every single person I have ever known in my life and 'friend them'.
At the same time:  "I'm an artist, musician, small business, look at what I do, and say whether or not you intend to come to my event."
At the same time it was also:  "It's time to hunt down every single person I ever dated in the past, and make contact.  Hopefully my spouse will not find out.  And if I'm lucky, I might even be able to strike up an affair."

Now that people have run the gammut on all that nonsense, it has finally settled on:  "These are my political views, these are my religious views, these are the games I play, this is how much I drink, and here are pictures of everything I am about to eat."
There is also a healthy amount of ranting and raving, and posting of charts and graphs that no one seems to know the source of, and the occasional relationship dirty laundry.

Now...  Exactly WHERE are people concerned about their privacy again?  I must have missed something.

29-year-old multibillionaire acted after he learned of a developer's plan to buy one of the properties next door to the Facebook co-founder, said the source. "The developer was going to build a huge house and market the property as being next door to Mark Zuckerberg."

Eh, I'm OK with this.

you're kidding right?  Facebook is a "free" service.  Who pays for the infrastructure to keep the "free" service running?  should zuckerberg front the bill so that ad revenue is not needed?

i do stand for what i believe in, by not using facebook.  i used it initially in 2004-2006 but after that kind of dropped off the map.

Terms of service?

As in "we do what we want when we want, tough shiat"? The site has been falling for sometime, this isn't what any of us signed up for.

Unfortunately, we all can't be hipsters that follow every change like yourself.

Sometimes people can follow principles because of what they believe in. Mark is clearly socially awkward and values his privacy. Just no one else's.

People agree that it's no longer what they signed up for, yet they still stay...
