Privacy No Longer a Social Norm, Says Facebook Founder

Monday Jan 11th 2010 by Staff

Don't want the entire world to know the intimate details of your life? That's so 2005. At San Francisco's Crunchie awards, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said that privacy was no longer a "social norm."

"People have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly and with more people," he said. "That social norm is just something that has evolved over time."

Many found fault with this attempt to justify recent changes in Facebook's privacy policy. Some reject the idea that young people don't care about privacy, and others say that if privacy expectations have eroded, it's Facebook's fault.
