Facebook Founder says privacy not the “norm”

The Founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, made some interesting comments to TechCrunch at the weekend.

The social networking mogul claimed that people are no longer as concerned about privacy on the net as they once were.

The Guardian quotes him as saying: “People have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly and with more people. That social norm is just something that has evolved over time.”

Of course, all this comes since Facebook changed its privacy settings recently. A great deal of controversy surrounded this move, with many users unclear about exactly what remained private.

In fact Zuckerberg himself fell foul of the changes, which enabled some of his own private photos to be seen by the masses. They were soon taken down, despite these new privacy “norms”.
