Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg on Privacy: "Sometimes we move too fast..." [news.bbc.co.uk]
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has admitted that Facebook "missed the mark" over recent privacy concerns.

In a column in the Washington Post newspaper, he said the social network would soon make changes to users' privacy options.

The move may placate some of the growing band of members who had pledged to quit the social network on 31 May.

"Sometimes we move too fast - and after listening to recent concerns, we're responding," wrote Mr Zuckerberg.

"Sometimes we move too fast - and after listening to recent concerns, we're responding," wrote Mr Zuckerberg.


"Sometimes, we make initial unpopular decisions that help us make more money, like the News Feed. We will pretend to care about this new issue until it blows over like all other past decisions."

"Sometimes we move too fast"

Sometimes we have no choice but to retreat--for a few weeks.

Because we don't care about the vision the site was founded on and have gotten blinded by greed.

It is only because the users banded together and more or less forced him to change course.

The trust users once had of facebook is gone. It is like having your best friend steal from ya gets caught repents and wants back into your trust. Just doesn't work that way. Takes time.

Sometimes we shoot first and ask questions later. That guy came out blazing!

I deactivated my account, never really used it anyway other than to confirm Friend Requests.

I highly doubt it. I think people just stop participating in status updates, wall posts, games, etc. A lot of people I know keep their accounts open should someone need to contact them with a private message.

Without the ability to share, broadly, i'm sure it limits the revenue opportunities. I suspect that's the reasoning behind the preferred broad sharing.

I think Zuckerburg should forget this nonsense and worry about the continued lawsuits from ConnectU...you know, the site the code was for before he took it to launch his own company?

Good luck with securities fraud Mark!

To err is obvious from an inexperienced young man like him. He will shine I believe if we forgive and he takes lessons to be slow & steady.

from else where...

.. including an "easy way to turn off all third-party services" that can access your account.

SPEECH LESS, why would one go and do all that now>?

albo, you misheard Mark, what he actually said was:

"Uh... what seems to be the officer, problem?"
