Sharing Is "The Whole Point"
SOCIAL NETWORKINGDecember 16, 2010
From a privacy perspective, it would appear to have been a tumultuous year for Facebook. But that's not evident when considering the popularity of the site. The company "continues to add a million-plus new users a day," according to Facebook advisor Mozelle Thompson, who was in Auckland last week for the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities forum. Thompson said that people join Facebook to share information and that "to create a situation where the default choice is not sharing information would seem to defeat the purpose of the Web site."
