I mean, we killed democracy, gave a platform to Nazis, sold your data to the highest bidder so… kinda hard to believe that a single word we say, right?
Mockery of the notion which, as TechCrunch place it, Zuckerberg has abruptly “found privacy. ” Skepticism as typified by Mashable’s useful warning that “when the previous 15 years of Facebook have taught us anything, it is that we should not take Zuckerberg’s words at face value” and the Washington Post’s adorably credulous assert that “ought to [Zuckerberg’s] ambition be realized, it’s nothing less than the epochal change in Facebook’s business model. ”
Zuckerberg himself confessed how difficult it’s to feel that Facebook actually cares about making a space where consumers can communicate and in tiny numbers.
Ho ho ho!
“I understand that many people don’t think Facebook can or would want to build this type of privacy-focused system — because honestly we don’t now have a solid reputation for building privacy protective solutions…”
The media reaction to Mark Zuckerberg’s memo on privacy and Facebook has mostly fallen into two teams: doubt and open mockery.
