Facebook CEO Admits MistakesMay 25th, 2010 - 9:20 pm ICT by Pen Men At Work
May 25, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the incredibly popular social networking site, Facebook, has admitted that mistakes were made vis-à-vis the recent privacy controversies surrounding the site. Responding to an email over security worries on Facebook, Zuckerberg wrote about committing a cluster of mistakes and guaranteed to repair them as soon as possible.
In his mail, Zuckerberg requested people to appreciate that the intentions of Facebook are right and that, after fixing the issues, the service will finish up in a better place.
Facebook, which has virtually 500 million users internationally, has been encountering mounting disapproval over baffling privacy settings and over certain technical anomalies that can unveil the users’ personal data. Zuckerberg addressed the need of a simpler way to control information and stated that the site will be adding new privacy controls that will be much easier to use.
Earlier this month, a number of users could observe private chats of people in their friends’ list due to a technical breakdown. This happened less than three months after some Facebook users obtained private communications that weren’t meant for them. This took place because of another technical glitch.
Ezra Gottheil, an analyst with Technology Business Research, said that making Facebook’s privacy settings uncomplicated should help to alleviate a lot of remonstrations from the users. Gottheil mentioned that Facebook has some work to do to repair its image.
