Facebook CEO speaks about recent privacy issues

In a recent appearance at the 2009 Crunchies Awards ceremonies in Las Vegas last week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated that privacy is becoming less important to online users, prompting wide criticism from the media.

As reported from Computer World, Zuckerberg explained that users are not too bothered about privacy now, compared to as much as they were in the past.

He added that in the last five or six years, people have really gotten into the social aspect of the internet, and have become comfortable with sharing more ‘openly’ information with a lot more people.

With that in place, he said that the recent privacy updates were changed, due to the change of user’s personal preference, or as Zuckerberg calls it – ‘social norm’.

What do you think about this? Do you agree with his comments, or do you feel that the recent privacy changes should have remained unchanged?
