More Updates on Facebook Privacy

by on May.10, 2010, under general

The sustained blowback from the Facebook community has been as powerful as I’ve ever seen it, which is really quite inspiring.

AllFacebook calls for Facebook to “make instant personalization opt-in immediately”, calling its practices “unethical” otherwise:

It’s pretty outrageous to watch Facebook defend something which is obviously unethical. I’m talking about the company’s “Instant Personalization” program which the company forces users into, whether they like it or not. Despite the ongoing public criticism about the service, and a number of other products, Facebook is standing strong, arguing that users “love” what Facebook is doing.

Not only is [Facebook’s position that users love the service] a complete lie, but it’s a violation of the trust of the hundreds of millions of users who support the service.

Plus, Matt McKeon has a great graphic illustrating the EFF’s timeline of how Facebook has opened up.

Don’t want to leech his graphic, so click through and check it out.

As Vonnegut would say – strong stuff.

    Based on Google Search, SEOTOPS even states “Quitting FaceBook is the Latest Craze” in their blog.

    Thanks for the updates.
