Zuckerberg: Privacy No Longer the 'Social Norm'
SOCIAL NETWORKINGJanuary 12, 2010
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg recently told TechCrunch that a desire for privacy is no longer the "social norm," PCWorld reports. Despite protests from Facebook's critics, the success of that social networking platform may be all the evidence needed to support his assertion. "People have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly and with more people," Zuckerberg said. "That social norm is just something that's evolved over time." The challenge today, says the report, is in striking a balance between allowing people to share information about themselves online and in providing tools to help them make better decisions about how to share.
